Poe's use of the heart and eye in his writings

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Hello... I am writing a term paper on the use of Poe's motifs in "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Black Cat". I am mainly focusing on his use of the eye and heart in these stories. If you know of any literary criticism on this subject, or if you can contribute in any way, please notify me. Thank you!
