I need help on a paper about Poe.

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

I have to write a paper for my English III class on Edger Allan Poe. The paper is about how in his stories ODSESSION led to MADNESS. Like in "The Tall-Tale Heart". The Obsession fot the eye led him to kill the old man. I need examples from three of Poe's stories or poems. I also need to relate the story to Poe's life. If anyone can give me some help I would really be appreciative.

Thank You Ash

Another good example is the pit and the pendulum. his obsession with death and how to avoid it leads him to insanity. sorry thats all i can tell you, hope it helps!
