    My Favorite Author

    EAP has always been my favorite author. Did a couple of research papers over his short stories in high school and in college. He is the quintessential tragic genious. The fact that he couldn't cope with life is due to the very symptoms that allow his work to bleed genius. The...

    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...

    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...
