ABSTRACT. We will explore a dimension of (self-)aggression as regulatory mechanism. This examination of Edgar Allan Poe’s case attempts to corroborate pathography with the American author’s implicit and explicit aesthetics, a study oriented by the notion of ‘perverse’ somehow seeming to reconcile such apparently opposing series as repetition and difference, normality and deviance, natural and unnatural. pp. 93–99

Keywords: the imp of the perverse; self-aggression; deviance; perverse; control; adjustment
