I don't have much to say about WILLIAM WILSON. I've heard it said that it belongs to the subgenre called "the doppelganger story," which was apparently popular in this time-period.

Since there's no independent verification that the narrator really does have a lookalike who dogs his tracks and ends up dying at the narrator's hands, this seems more of "phantasmal figuration" than an outright marvel.
