    1. The name Poe brings to mind images of murderers and madmen, premature burials, and mysterious women who return from the dead His works have been in print since 1827 and include such literary classics as The Tell Tale Heart, The Raven, and The Fall of the House of Usher This versatile writer s oeuvre includes short stories, poetry, a novel, a textbook, a book of scientific theory, and hundreds of essays and book reviews He is widely acknowledged as the inventor of the modern detective story and an innovator in the science fiction genre, but he made his living as America s first great literary critic and theoretician Poe s reputation today rests primarily on his tales of terror as well as on his haunting lyric poetry.Just as the bizarre characters in Poe s stories have captured the public imagination so too has Poe himself He is seen as a morbid, mysterious figure lurking in the shadows of moonlit cemeteries or crumbling castles This is the Poe of legend But much of what we know about Poe is wrong, the product of a biography written by one of his enemies in an attempt to defame the author s name.The real Poe was born to traveling actors in Boston on January 19, 1809 Edgar was the second of three children His other brother William Henry Leonard Poe would also become a poet before his early death, and Poe s sister Rosalie Poe would grow up to teach penmanship at a Richmond girls school Within three years of Poe s birth both of his parents had died, and he was taken in by the wealthy tobacco merchant John Allan and his wife Frances Valentine Allan in Richmond, Virginia while Poe s siblings went to live with other families Mr Allan would rear Poe to be a businessman and a Virginia gentleman, but Poe had dreams of being a writer in emulation of his childhood hero the British poet Lord Byron 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.For information, please see enpedia wiki Edgar_al

    2. 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 eyes and compare Poe’s tale with a few others. In The Painter of Eyes by Jean Richepin, we encounter an obscure artist who sells his soul to the Devil in order to paint at least one masterpiece. [...]

    3. What a quick little stab of the macabre this tale is! It's a classic example of the unreliable narrator, who tries desperately to convince the reader of his sanity even as he stalks, kills, dismembers, and buries an old man for no other reason than that the man's eye "resembled that of a vulture." Of course the harder he tries to convince the reader of his sanity, the more insane you realize he is: "You should have seen how wisely I proceeded--with what caution--what what foresight--with what di [...]

    4. Creepy and fascinatingwonderfully evil and beautifully written Edgar Allen Poe, the master of dark stories. First published in 1843, that's a long long time ago. Three stories in this Penguin classics booklet, the famous Tell-Tale Heart (brilliantly weird and insane), The Fall of the House of Usher (what's going on exactly. very poeticly written, intriguing, dark and mysterious atmosphere) and The Cask of Amontillado (wonderfully evil story). Loved it, beautiful language and Poe really is a grea [...]

    6. Who wouldn't find this insanity pure bliss? OK, possible exaggeration, but honestly the rhythm and the beat of the words just make their own music in your mind and your breath as you read through them. A master I wish I could have met him. Guessing what the noise is and what's going on around you makes you want to watch the whole scene looking in from the window.About MeFor those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop: I read A LOT. I write A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review go [...]

    7. This is quite possibly my favourite short story of all time as it makes me laugh so much. The narrator tries so hard to convince you of his sanity, but in doing so reveals more about his insanity than his dark deed does itself. It's kind of ironic really. I mean he mistakes the pounding of his own heart with that of the old man’s and uses it as a prompt to murder him because, after-all, the neighbours might hear the beating of his heart though the walls. And lo and behold his evil eye that is [...]

    8. لو عرف المجنون انه مجنون. .اذن فهو عاقل او عرفت انه أنين الرعب و الهلاك لا لم تكن هذه صرخة الم او حزن. .بل ذلك الانين الضعيف الذي ينبع من باطن الروح عندما تزيد رهبتها اهذه القصة قوطية الطابع تتشابه كثيرا جدا مع القط الاسود هي نموذج ممتاز للفصام الذهاني المتقدم ممتزجا بالباران [...]

    9. " it was not the old man who vexed me, but his Evil Eye."The nervous narrator decides murder is the only way to rid himself of this horrible eye -- but he didn't plan for the old man's heart. This is one of Edgar Allen Poe's most famous short stories, from 1843. The unreliable narrator tells about how he was undone by an old man's clouded, "vulture-like" eye and beating heart or was he?The unnamed narrator is talking to another person, presumably a psychiatrist or policeman, trying his best to [...]

    10. The Tell-tale Heart, written in 1842, is one of Poe's best known short stories, despite its brevity. It is a study of the psychology of guilt, madness and paranoia, which are themes present in many of Poe's other works. The author uses a favourite claustrophobic device of his - (view spoiler)[the boarding or walling up of living or dead creatures. The narrator's guilt manifests itself by his being haunted by supernatural beating sounds emanating from the heart. It is unbearable to him, so as in [...]

    11. A short story classic! Poe had excellent timing in the pace for The Tell-Tale Heart, setting it to the quickening beat of a increasingly nervous heart. (Don't you dare comment below about how "the heart" mentioned in the story is the victim's, not the narrator's!)Countless future writers, especially tv writers needing to tie things up within a half hour, would use this story as a framework for how to wring a confession out of a perpetrator.Unfortunately, this story might not capture the terrifie [...]

    12. Excelente.!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Uno de los cuentos más conocidos de Poe. Me gustó mucho. Increíble como el autor, en tan pocas páginas, genera ese clima siniestro. ”Oí de pronto un leve quejido, y supe que era el quejido que nace del terror. No expresaba dolor o pena… ¡oh, no! Era el ahogado sonido que brota del fondo del alma”Reconozco que me fue difícil leerlo sin que me viniera a la mente este capítulo de los simpsons jaja 😂

    13. I read this in English class about two days ago, and at that moment, I realized what true writing talent was.It’s a beautiful story.Haunted story.I’ve never read that much of Edgar Allen Poe’s work, but snaps for him, cause at the end, my whole class went speechless. This is a story where at the beginning, you really know what the hell is bloody going on , but by the end, everything ties together.Everything. A truly captivating story starring a madman.:)

    14. The Tell-Tale Heart, Edgar Allan Poe"The Tell-Tale Heart" by writer Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1843. It is relayed by an unnamed narrator who endeavors to convince the reader of his sanity while simultaneously describing a murder he committed. The victim was an old man with a filmy "vulture-eye", as the narrator calls it. The narrator emphasizes the careful calculation of the murder, and he hides the body by dismembering it in the bathtub, and hiding it under the floorboards. Ultimately [...]

    15. :) Midnight. You are lying in bed, sleeping. Suddenly there is a noise. You´r sitting up, around you there is darkness. Your heart starts beating. You know, something evil is in the room and you can`t escape it Have a good night, friends :-)

    16. READING an Edgar Allan Poe story is like you were watching a macabre dance of death in a gothic theatre in the dead of night. Mr. Poe is a master of suspense – chilling suspense. He builds it up slowly – so slowly – that you start feeling scared and getting goosebumps all over your body. You can hear your heartbeat just like the narrator does in “The Tell-Tale Heart”. However, it is not his heartbeat that he is hearing but that of a sleeping old man into whose bedroom he creeps into. A [...]

      p, is for Poe4 Stars Now this is the point. You fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But you should have seen me. You should have seen how wisely I proceeded –with what caution –with what foresight –with what dissimulation I went to work!I have read A Tell-Tale Heart half a dozen times in my life and at every re-reading I am struck anew with Poe’s genius, he is one of the few writers I have ever come across who can entirely foreshadow a novel (or in this case short story) and yet still evo [...]

    18. Oh this is a really creepy good one!.(listened to the audio this time)An unnamed narrator is the nightly intruder that watches the old man sleep. He must put an end to the evil eye that haunts his days and visits his dreams. He must be so quiet as he sneaks into the black as pitch chamber.ght after night.d then, a shriek! The deed is finally done, but.e nightmare only beginsE TELL-TALE HEART is dark and spooky with a GREAT ending! One of my POE favorites!

    19. Well shit.Loved it. Short and sweet but not lacking in suspense and downright creepiness. I'll hold my hands up and admit that this English Lit lover first heard of this story through The Simpsons. Sacrilege I know, but I guess it never made it on to the syllabus at my school. So I sort of knew how it would turn out, but still there's so much to consider here, I can see why it's a popular choice for study.

    20. The Tell-Tale Heart is a story about an unnamed person who insists on their sanity after murdering an old man with an evil eye. The murder was cold, calculated and well executed, the body disposed; but the guilt slowly eats away at the person. The story uses an unreliable narrator very effectively; driving the story without giving too much away, to keep it tense. The narrator is genderless though most people assume he’s a man, it could just as easily been a woman. The way the story is written, [...]

    22. Perfection. I listened to the audiobook for this one and it made the experience so much more intense. Listen to it hereIf you're looking for a creepy read, give this one a go!

    23. Muchas cosas oí en el infierno. Mi corazón lector (perdón por el chiste malo) ya estaba dando saltitos en las frases iniciales. Es un cuento para leer en voz alta. Eso es lo primero que se me vino a la cabeza en cuanto lo empecé. Un actor o una actriz lo haría de mil maravillas, pero de todas formas lo intenté (y sí, hay que animarse). Tiene un ritmo tremendo y parece un monólogo, más que una sucesión de hechos. Creo que es el primer cuento (subrayo “creo”, ya que debería releer y [...]

    24. Increíble como Poe intenta convencernos de la sanidad de su personaje, pero al intentarlo tanto termina reflejando su innegable locura, que al final, no hace mas que consumirlo.

    25. Since Trump soon becomes the official president of the USA, let’s prepare ourselves by reading some horror stories! Well, real life wasn’t the sole reason for me picking up this LBC, but do I really need a reason to read Poe? Some good gothic horror is sometimes just the thing to spice up your YA/Fantasy/Sci-fi reading streak, and Poe’s collection of short spooky stories are perfect for that. If you’re unfamiliar with the tales of Edgar Allan Poe, this Little Black Book is a perfect intr [...]

    26. I first read this, like many others, in elementary school. I remember listening to the teacher explain it and how the concept intrigued me. I read it again a couple years ago. I just finished my third read. The more we read, the better it gets! Poe has this power with words I don't yet understand or have researched or tried yet to analyze. He takes all the senses you own from inside your head and makes you live inside the story. He has an amazing story-telling ability that gives excitement and p [...]

    27. No point going into a long review, it's Poe he's excellent, so go read some. Go on quick, don't waste time on my paltry words go and read the great master of the macabre

    28. A friend of mine read this and posted it online for a Halloween-themed podcast in October and it was fucking gold. Look up Backstage Buddies on player, SoundCloud, iTunes, etc!
