Literature effect from Poe's work : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

What do you think the psychological effect Poe's short stories specialy "The Tell-Taled Heart" have on his reader. Do you think Poe wanted to create a avenue for his readers to get a feel of violence? A therapeutic way to release feelings of violence? I'm writing a paper on how people read fiction fo fulfill the empty space within themselves. I want to get an opinion from someone else. Is there any sites that can help me with this kind of information.
