    A Dream Within A Dream

    Poe's Most Profound Writing (imo)

    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...
