Despite all Poe's animosities and the articles attacking various liteary personages I can only find three tale(no poems) centering exactly on revenge.

Metzengerstein(supernatural curse revenge) an early tale.

The Cask of Amontillado- the classic tale of revenge between Italian nobles.

Hop Frog- a late, mocking, distorted tale of revenge, this time it's almost biographically personal though in a bizarre medieval setting with several references to past works turned upside down.
