In these two stories Poe uses foreshadowing in way that if the reader spots the small details or Poes “word playing “ he/she can predict what will happen or get a hint of what will happen. In Black Cat there are few foreshadows. One foreshadow is when the narrator sees a cat in the wall and Pluto`s color being black is believed to be unlucky and in this story the narrator is unhappy and unlucky. The narrator gets gouth because of a cat being inside a wall.
Near the end of the paragraph, it is said the narrator “approached and saw, as if graven in bas relief upon the white surface, the figure of a gigantic cat”(Poe 853). The author utilizes thorough imagery to represent the figure of a cat engraved into the wall. This imagery foreshadows two elements of the story. As the black cat motif obviously is not coincidental, it predicts the arrival of a new cat, or arguably the reincarnation of the initial one. It symbolizes the return of the feline and the continuation of the narrator’s problems.
Fritz the Cat (1972) is a film about the 60s. Being the first animated feature to receive an X rating, Fritz the Cat attempts to unveil all the violence, sex, racism, and disillusionment of the 1960s through an unfiltered, and debatably unfocused, lens. Ralph Bakshi is the director behind this film, and he aimed to show that the 60s was not a very perfect era, but in fact quite hypocritical one. Fritz the Cat and the numerous people that surround him are, for the most part, confused souls with often ill-informed ideas about the world around them, and this is present right near the beginning of the film.
Poe usually writes his stories with the main character being mentally insane, usually denying that they are and acting overall crazily. An example from “The Tell-Tale Heart” is: “True!-nervous-very, very, dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I’m mad? The disease had sharpened my senses-not destroyed-not dulled them.” (Poe, “The Tell-Tale Heart”) An example from “The Black Cat” is: “Mad indeed would I be to expect it, in a case where my very senses reject their own evidence.
As the Caterpillar teaches Alice how to master the physical changes she is going through, so the Cat teaches her how to fit into this world on the next level–social, i.e. on the level of behaving in a socially acceptable manner. The Cheshire Cat indicates to Alice how many rules, if they come into question, prove irrational and even crazy, since they are not in accordance with the nature. A very good example of this is a tie; social norms stipulate that a tie should be worn in all formal occasions, while its practical use is completely missing. The Cheshire Cat states that, “I laugh when I’m sad, and I cry when I’m happy,” (Carroll 19), which makes it “mad”, but in fact that kind of behavior is authentic and normal for it. Therefore, complying with the prescribed social norms very often makes one behave as a self-deluded, and even a mad person, with regards to their real nature and their inherent attitudes.
“And then came, as if to my final and irrevocable overthrow, the spirit of PERVERSENESS.” Perverseness is persistently holding to what is wrong; wayward. Edgar Allen Poe’s, “The Black Cat,” is a case study of the spirit of Perverseness. “The Black Cat is a fascinating story that gives us insights into the mind of an insane man. In the short story “The Black Cat,” Edgar Allen Poe uses the point of view of first person unreliable to challenge the trust between the reader and the narrator.
Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat” uses inner thinking along w/ Lucille Fletcher’s “The Hitchhiker” while they have many big differences.

Both text share the same idea that they change without themselves knowing.

One similarity of the two stories is the cat and the rat both helped each other to go somewhere and ended up hating each other by the end of it.
