Poe Is the Foe
Writing dark romanticisms is what puts us in the same category. But we should not be confused with each other. We both agree on the fact that man can never be perfect. In my story, "The Birthmark" and in your story, "The Black Cat", we both include wives who are willing to do anything to please their husbands. We both write about the idea of transformation on the main character's crisis which causes the alteration in their identities. But I do a better job of portraying humanity. Humanity is not necessarily evil but rather imperfect because making mistakes does not automatically make someone evil. I also think you should incorporate more morals in your stories because there is not a solid one in "The Black Cat" which is definitely an important thing to incorporate in one's writing.
