If you have the patience to scroll down on this site I did this once before and don't have the time now. Suffice it to say Poe presents the issue sort of tongue in cheek and ends the same way with a deflation of his own overexcited imagination(after he has succeeded in scaring himself silly). He uses examples from real life, supposedly, then ends with his own "experience" all the while expressing disapproval then entrapment with the gruesome lure of the topic. Mainly concerned with the internal mental state of the person undegoing various stages of the horror of premature entombment.
