But sadly, he does not find out about the bat until his wife is dead. In the “The Feather Pillow,” there is the quote that says “It had stealthly appeared its mouth - its snout, rather to her tapes suck out her blood.” this quote express the theme of grotesqueness.

Macbeth begins to go insane after he murders King Duncan at the beginning of the play. Although he did it for a gain of power, he still feels very guilty. Macbeth starts saying weird things about what he heard, “Methought I heard a voice cry “Sleep no more!” to all the house. “Glamis hath murdered sleep, and therefore Cawdor Shall sleep no more.

In the third one, The Black Cat, a man, who was a suffered from alcoholism, was obsessed about the cat that he killed and was unsatisfied by a new cat he got, hoping it to be a sort of a makeshift for his dead cat. All three stories bear striking similarities, as well as noteworthy differences in terms of the contributing elements. In all of the stories, the narrator had a different perspective towards the obsession which led to madness.
