Background on Poe in relation to The Pit and the Pendulum : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Yeah, I'm like every other procrastinator on here, except that my question isn't as essential to my paper's outcome...

My question is simply this:

Does anyone know about the Background of Poe and how he may have symbolized himself in The Pit and the Pendulum? I've heard that he may have put himself purposefully in the rats, but I dunno about that... Any help is quite appreciated; however, help before thursday is even more appreciated, since the paper is due then... Thanks!
