Putting my analysis into TA terms, one of the stories included as well as interpreted, herein, is an elaboration of what NIGSOB might look like, to the protagonist. "Being a descendant of a powerful family, Montresor could not possibly let Fortunato insult him with impunity." "Montresor's family motto is NEMO ME IMPUNE LACESSIT." "Conflict arises because of a sensation of incongruity and their current social standing and their right to prominence by virtue of their origin."

Abridged essays on several of Poe's tales and characters, focusing on the standards, like Usher, Dupin, and the Black Cat. A fair amount of information, yet it only scratches the interpretative surfaces.
