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

I need to know the answer to:

How do the mental disorders and struggles of the characters in Poe's works correlate with modern-day definitions of psychological disorders?

I'd just like to know some specific stories that i should read that include psychologically deranged characters and perhaps what disorder they have or seem to have. thanks!
