Even now, due to their narrative power and chilling macabre storylines, such tales as The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Masque of the Red Death, The Murders in the Rue Morgue and many others remain unforgettable and matchless.

Apoi, Poe face o reflecţie monumentală: "Şi dacă adâncimea de gândire e doar pricinuită şi stimulată de această înclinare, sau mai degrabă dovedită prin ea, iată un lucru gingaş şi greu de hotărât". Poe pursues the counter-intuitive in “The Purloined Letter”, the facts of which Dupin describes as “simple and odd”, as well as a mystery that is “a little too plain, a little too self-evident”.

We all think of summer as a good time to dig into a frothy beach read, but it’s also the perfect occasion to pick up a title or two from your (sometimes daunting) “To-Read” list—and you know the one I mean. The Poetic Principle” and “A review of Longfellow, April 1842” are amazing for the epic insults Poe gives his fellow poets (“The fact is, that perseverance is one thing, and genius quite another” 185). On the other hand, Poe adds that “by undue profundity we perplex and enfeeble thought; and it is possible to make even Venus herself vanish from the firmament by a scrutiny too sustained, too concentrated, or too direct. He is very much shrouded in shadow and the macabre, at least, his more successful stories and poems were. For Poe fans worldwide, this stunning gift edition features a gorgeous deckled edge, ribbon marker, and foil and deboss details on a vibrantly coloured case.

Mă gândesc adesea dacă nu cumva stările oamenilor, cele negative adică, nu sunt nimic altceva decât o rană care sângerează latent. I mean, he literally shows him the tool with which he will wall Fortunato up with claiming to be a Mason and he says his family crest is a heel crushing a snake that is biting the heel. The catacombs in Cask are very much a Gothic trope where mysterious passageways and hidden chambers build unease on the idea of enclosed spaces as the claustrophobia of death closing in around you. Poe asserts that “the analytical power should not be confounded with simple ingenuity; for while the analyst is necessarily ingenious, the ingenious man is often remarkably incapable of analysis.It is a tale of a missing body, murder and betrayal; there is a decaying corpse, a case of vintage wine and a certain amount of sleight-of-hand. Pe mine unul m-a făcut să plutesc în balonul improvizat de Hans Phaall, m-a făcut să privesc Terra de la înălţime şi mi-a stimulat imaginaţia până dincolo de hotarele pe care credeam eu că le avea. Many of the narrators of his tales are classic "unreliable narrators," and Poe wants his readers to see them as such--to see behind the masks they don--and it's there that his tales gather most force. Half the enjoyment is just in the atmosphere though, especially in stories like The Tell-Tale Heart where most of the narrative is insisting that he is not ‘ a madman’ and listing all the ways he meticulously plots and executes his murder as a sure sign he is in full control of his faculties. His often macabre and dark works, which span the years from 1827 to his death in 1849, include “The Raven,” “The Black Cat,” “The Tell-Tale Heart,” and “Annabelle Lee.

Please don't read the synopsis on the Goodreads book edition, since it spoils the story and its apparent meaning in their entirety. While waiting for permanent housing, I ended up staying in the house (and the very bedroom) that Poe had been in while he served on the base. The message: Do never, never, never be so naive to enter some dark, creepy catacombs on another person's request without any witnesses. E pentru prima dată când văd la Poe, pe lângă latura obscură, latura romantismului suferind, concentrarea pe eul propriu.

It appears confusing and contradictory, but if you stop and consider who is actually speaking then its true nature is revealed. It seemed to have been constructed for no especial use within itself, but formed merely the interval between two of the colossal supports of the roof of the catacombs, and was backed by one of their circumscribing walls of solid granite. It makes the man realise that this is life, not some whimsical world where nothing bad ever happens. Over the next five years he established himself as a master of the short story form through the publication of "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Masque of the Red Death," "The Tell-tale Heart," and other well-known works.

Nu mă pasionează problema fatalismului de ordin supranatural (nu cel în stilul lui Poe), însă citind seria asta de scrieri mă simt că un om în alb-negru, iar tot ce este în jurul meu deprinde aceeaşi culoare. Early poetic verses found written in a young Poe’s handwriting on the backs of Allan’s ledger sheets reveal how little interest Poe had in the tobacco business.

Ceea ce am remarcat la Poe, în toate scrierile în care naratorul înfăptuieşte o crimă, e dorinţa lui de a tăia cadavrul în bucăţi şi a-l îngropa sub podea sau în perete.
