    A Dream Within A Dream

    Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is...

    Lenore And The Conqueror Worm

    The first horror story that I ever read was The House of Usher. I had to read it for 8th grade English. I fell in love with the works of Poe that afternoon. We were given the weekend to read it but I found it so fascinating that I spent that Friday evening reading the entire...

    Poe's Most Profound Writing (imo)

    WHATEVER doubt may still envelop the rationale of mesmerism, its startling facts are now almost universally admitted. Of these latter, those who doubt, are your mere doubters by profession — an unprofitable and disreputable tribe. There can be no more absolute waste of time...

    The Raven

    Edgar Allan Poe The Raven [First published in 1845] Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my...

    Edgar Allen Poe has been a big influence on my

    writing. One of the first horror writers I got introduced to when I was young. His brilliance as a writer both in the short story format and poems cannot be over emphasized. Here is my list of his five greatest horror stories: 1. Cask of Amontillado 2. The Tell Tale heart...
