Setting:
Whole story is being told in the prison but takes place in narrator´s home( in two houses ) +at the tavern where he used to drink.

Characters:
Narrator, his wife, black cat called Pluto, another black cat, servant, a party of the police.

Point of view:
Narrator is the main character- unreliable narrator.

Style:
Usage of first person narrator. Very simple style. Chronologically organised events of narrator´s life. Na začiatku sa dozvedáme ako to s ním nakoniec dopadlo.

Theme(s), subjects:
All the bad things, that we do, come back once and punish us.

Symbolism, allusions, myth
:
The black cat- black magic, a misfortune, a witch.
Gallows- the death is coming. A revenge.

My own interpretation
:
The narrator explains his current position – “But to-morrow I die, and to-day I would unburthen my soul.”
His purpose is to inform about “a series of mere household events”.
The narrator´s perverse actions are brought on by his alcoholism.
A murderer carefully conceals –zatajiť- his crime and believes himself unassailable- napadnutý- , but eventually breaks down and reveals himself, impelled- priviesť- by a nagging- otravný, dobiedzavý- reminder of his guilt.
