Which quotation from "The Black Cat" best supports the idea that the narrator initially regrets mistreating Pluto? “This spirit of perverseness, I say, came to my final overthrow.” “I am above the weakness of seeking to establish a sequence of cause and effect, between the disaster and the atrocity.” “When I first beheld this apparition—for I could scarcely regard it as less—my wonder and my terror were extreme.” “I blush, I burn, I shudder, while I pen the damnable atrocity.”

Which quotation from "The Black Cat" best supports the inference that the narrator feels he deserves to be punished for his cruelty? “...I knew that in so doing I was committing a sin…even beyond the reach of the infinite mercy of the Most Merciful and Most Terrible God.” “Although I thus readily accounted to my reason, if not altogether to my conscience, for the startling fact just detailed, it did not the less fail to make a deep impression upon my fancy.” “…I experienced a sentiment half of horror, half of remorse, for the crime of which I had been guilty; but it was, at best, a feeble and equivocal feeling, and the soul remained untouched.” “I knew myself no longer. My original soul seemed, at once, to take its flight from my body and a more than fiendish malevolence, gin-nurtured, thrilled every fibre of my frame.“

The first one I would say is "The narrator is unreliable because his use of alcohol alters his character and behavior." the second would be “I blush, I burn, I shudder, while I pen the damnable atrocity.” The third is probably “...I knew that in so doing I was committing a sin…even beyond the reach of the infinite mercy of the Most Merciful and Most Terrible God.” the fourth is "Readers question the validity of the narrator's explanation of his feelings." and the last should be "Readers get an inside perspective on how the narrator feels when the cat ignores him."
