Should the kittens be found to suffer uneasiness in an equal degree with their mother, I must consider my theory in fault, but a failure to do so I should look upon as a strong confirmation of my idea.

"By eight o'clock I had actually attained an elevation of seventeen miles above the surface of the earth. Thus it seemed to me evident that my rate of ascent was not only on the increase, but that the progression would have been apparent in a slight degree even had I not discharged the ballast which I did. The pains in my head and ears returned, at intervals, with violence, and I still continued to bleed occasionally at the nose; but, upon the whole, I suffered much less than might have been expected.

You know, I'm pretty sure most people like this (and Poe) for the kind of creepy slightly Gothic effect, but I think that is a very superficial and silly way to read it. The beating of the heart has absolutely nothing to do with redemption, nothing to do with guilt or anything, it has to do with the


Published in 1850, Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart is one of the best known and most memorable short stories ever written. Since there are dozens of commentaries and reviews here and elsewhere on the internet, in the spirit of freshness, I will take a particular focus: obsession with an eye or

Once a year, if you observe the horror holiday Halloween, you should read one or more of Poe’s chilling stories. Why not “The Tell Tale Heart”? I just this evening heard my neighbor Ann read it aloud before a gathering of block party neighbors in my street.

Poes life and literary work is a mystery to me:

These are great stories and scared the heck out of me when I was a kid. The title story especially, The Tell-Tale Heart. Later, when I was older I had the LP with the story told by Vincent Price. He had the voice that could make Mary had a little Lamb sound scary. One Halloween I dressed like a vamp

But are you Edgar Allan Poe gothic. I don’t think so!

I'm going with 5 STARS for this compilation.
Edgar Allan Poe has influenced so many writers along with culture that it's hard not to give him all the stars.

He's a master of the topics of greed, lust and

My first time to read and finish a collection by Edgar Allan Poe and I was just blown away. This was one of my two Halloween reads this year and it made my long Halloween weekend truly worth remembering.

Here are my reactions to each of the 32 writings included in the book by Edgar Allan Poe.

“I had always felt aversion to my uncourtly patronymic, and its very common, if not plebeian praenomen.”

“It was night, and the rain fell; and falling, it was rain, but, having fallen, it was blood. And I stood in the morass among the tall and the rain fell upon my head—and the lilies sighed one unt

Perfection.
I listened to the audiobook for this one and it made the experience so much more intense. Listen to it here
