Poe's narrator explains his story quite well. Compare to The Imp of the Perverse which has much more explanation and less story(more an example vignette of the theory).
This is a common example of a story where Poe attributes the strange fate of the cat to the narrator's alcoholic delusions and obsessive rage, yet the strangeness takes on real flesh in a real event. For other articles you might try poecentral.com, poedecoder.com or www.eapoe.org.
