Read the following paragraph from "The Black Cat" by Edgar Allen Poe. ...

Read the following paragraph from "The Black Cat" by Edgar Allen Poe. For the most wild, yet most homely narrative which I am about to pen, I neither expect nor solicit belief. Mad indeed would I be to expect it, in a case where
my very senses reject their own evidence. Yet, mad am I not-and very surely do I not dream. But to-morrow I die, and to-day I would unburden my soul. My
immediate purpose is to place before the world, plainly, succinctly, and without comment, a series of mere household events. In their consequences, these
events have terrified-have tortured-have destroyed me. Yet I will not attempt to expound them. To me, they have presented little but Horror-to many they
will seem less terrible than baroques. Hereafter, perhaps, some intellect may be found which will reduce my phantasm to the common-place-some intellect
more calm, more logical, and far less excitable than my own, which will perceive, in the circumstances I detail with awe, nothing more than an ordinary
succession of very natural causes and effects.
