Mad Character's : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I'm writing a paper on Poe's mad characters. I'm trying to figure out why exactly he wrote about them, what sparked his enthusiasm to show us the dark side of our nature and if his own life experiences had anything to do with the mad characters he had portrayed. Any feedback would be welcome. Thank you.
