The Tell-Tale Heart (1843)
Is a short story told by an unnamed narrator who endeavors to convince the reader of his sanity, while describing a murder he committed. The murder is carefully calculated, and the murderer hides the body by dismembering it and hiding it under the floorboards.

Fall of the House of Usher (1839)
As in all of Poe's short stories, "The Fall of the House of Usher" concentrates on a "single effect", in this case, the degeneration and decay of the Usher house and family.

The Masque of the Red Death (1842)
The story follows Prince Prospero's attempts to avoid a dangerous plague known as the Red Death by hiding in his abbey. He, along with many other wealthy nobles, has a masquerade ball within seven rooms of his abbey, each decorated with a different color. In the midst of their revelry, a mysterious figure disguised as a Red Death victim enters and...
