This is just a question and answer discussion site, ongoing by date. You might try searching through the postings. I did comment on it a few times already. Poe uses a tongue in cheek anecdotal escalation of exploring the consciousness of the victims of premature burial, with the notable exception of the female example. Then he falls victim to his own titillating frights and mistakes his own 'premature burial". More dark humor than morose obsession.
