Poe’s understanding of the Human mind is one of the most complex structures in the American canon. It is difficult to understand each brain process as every human being possesses his/her own distinguished thought patterns with dissimilar complexity levels. A person’s behaviour deeply influences the  psyche, which ultimately alters into a habit by becoming entrenched into a person’s disposition. Today, the field of psychology tries to comprehend everything a mind is able to produce. On the other hand, years before Psychology became a field of thought and practiced professionally, a number of American authors threw a spotlight on the apparatus of the mind in their works.
