I also think the story is about the fragility of sanity. While reading the story, the reader is never sure what is real, what can be explained rationally, what is a figment of the narrator’s imagination and if the story includes supernatural entities or not. Edgar Allan Poe does not explain the circumstances why the narrator becomes an insane murderer at all. I believe it is because he is implying that madness can happen to anyone anytime.

5. Did you like it?
I read this story twice. The first time I read it, I looked disgusted and asked: “Why do I have to read this?” But the second time I read it, I tried to look at all the happenings not so literary. I tried to view them as symbols and I think I started to understand this story. So I can say I liked it after all. The story is filled with symbols and leaves the reader with a bunch of unanswered questions.
