Edgar Allan Poe (1809-49) is perhaps the best-known American Romantic who worked in the so-called Gothic mode. His poems and stories explore the darker side of the Romantic imagination, dealing with the Grotesque, the supernatural, and the horrifying.
Though some scholars have credited Stanard’s death to tuberculosis, and thus part of a long series of consumptive women in Poe’s life, this is not true; the “death-like sickness” she suffered has not been identified.

Dark Romanticism is a literary subgenre of Romanticism , reflecting popular fascination with the irrational, the demonic and the grotesque. Often conflated with Gothicism, it has shadowed the euphoric Romantic movement ever since its 18th-century beginnings.
Dark Romantics focus on human fallibility, self-destruction, judgement, punishment, as well as the psychological effects of guilt and sin. Authors who embrace this genre include Edgar Allan Poe , Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, and Emily Dickinson.
Elements of both Romanticism and Gothic movements are present in this short story, making ‘The Black Cat ‘ a prime example of Gothic Romantic literature. Poe’s use of tone, narration-style, and symbols keeps the reader engulfed in the story, leaving it open to multiple thought-provoking interpretations.
