      I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth.I heard many things in hell Villains I shrieked Dissemble no I admit the deed Tear up the planks Here, here It is the beating of his hideous heart

      I had always felt aversion to my uncourtly patronymic, and its very common, if not plebeian praenomen It was night, and the rain fell and falling, it was rain, but, having fallen, it was blood And I stood in the morass among the tall and the rain fell upon my head and the lilies sighed one unto the other in the solemnity of their desolation Say what Is it rain or is it blood, or is it a plebeian praenomen And WTF is a praenomen anyway Edgar Allan Poe is not the easiest author to get on with From [...]

      My first time to read and finish a collection by Edgar Allan Poe and I was just blown away This was one of my two Halloween reads this year and it made my long Halloween weekend truly worth remembering Here are my reactions to each of the 32 writings included in the book by Edgar Allan PoeORIES1 The Tell Tale Heart 3 STARSQuite scary The narrator murders his or her there is no pronoun used master who has a vulture like eyes The narrator admits the crime at the beginning of his narration but what [...]

      Once a year, if you observe the horror holiday Halloween, you should read one or of Poe s chilling stories Why not The Tell Tale Heart I just this evening heard my neighbor Ann read it aloud before a gathering of block party neighbors in my street True, nervous, very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am, but why will say that I am mad The disease had sharpened my senses, not destroyed, not dulled them Above all was the sense of hearing acute The incomparable Vincent Price reading the stor [...]

    5. Nicholas Armstrong on said:

      You know, I m pretty sure most people like this and Poe for the kind of creepy slightly Gothic effect, but I think that is a very superficial and silly way to read it The beating of the heart has absolutely nothing to do with redemption, nothing to do with guilt or anything, it has to do with the futility of existence Read the story again and think of the mentions of heartbeat and pulse and think of the unreliability of the narrator It s not the pulse of the man he kills and it isn t the beating [...]

    6. Keely on said:

      No other writer evokes horror in its rawest, most human form like Edgar Allan Poe Sometimes his stories are a blunt force trauma while others are drilled into the mind using precision instruments of terror His themes and depictions of people s greatest fears are very diverse and uniquely constructed, visceral in some aspects but also cerebral in execution for a select few This anthology The Tell Tale Heart and Other Writings is comprised of his finest works in short story and poetry forms tackl [...]

    7. Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) on said:

      I ve read this story, not the whole book In my opinion, this is a masterpiece of suspense, and a powerful story about how a person s guilt will betray them in the end I love the way Poe builds up the tension slowly but surely until the end, with a careful use of narrative I believe this is the story that made me a Poe fan.

    8. Eyehavenofilter on said:

      Poor Edgar, always so sad, but he sure can write a terrifying story I wonder if it was the drugs he was on, of if this state of mind made him turn to the drugs Either way he was a master of the macabre, and he always caught your attention I think this is where my fascination with this type of literature began No one wrote like Poe No one left you hanging, literally, walled in, literally,and figuratively, like Poe He could tap into our basest fear, anger and regretke victims, beg for mercy, and y [...]

      A collection of work by the illustrious deviant with the charming monogram E.A.P Let me begin by trying to be helpful for anyone out there looking to pick up a copy of Poe s work do NOT settle for this edition, for a few bucks you can get the Complete Poe several available editions If you d rather settle for this half assed collection and a KFC Meal Deal instead of Poe s unabridged output, be my guest, odds are I ll be the guy behind you in line getting the Extra Spicy Chicken Sandwich and toti [...]

      I have read this for the 3rd time and finished 10 08 12.Very good I like Poe This collection wasn t the best, though For example, I wish Hop Frog was in it I like that short story I like Marie Roget, too, but I can see the editing of that from this book since we have two detective stories already.The last story I finished in this book was The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym Aside from the racism in the story and Poe is now dead and he wrote in the 1800 s, so nothing can now be done about that it [...]

      No, no, don t fancy me mad Madmen know nothing You should have seen me I read this one story after hearing a lot of appreciation for it Lately I have been reading Edgar Allan Poe s one work at a time and my gosh , the genius keeps on getting better Here he tells a story of a young person gender is not mentioned who kills an old man in a cold and calculated manner The way in which the story is told is simply magical I could not peel my eyes away even for a moment There is a new emotion and aspect [...]

      Never have I encountered such uncanny description of acute insanity from the inside out Case in point, the opening lines TRUE nervous, very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am but why WILL you say that I am mad The disease had sharpened my senses, not destroyed, not dulled them Above all was the sense of hearing acute I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth I heard many things in hell How then am I mad Hearken and observe how healthily, how calmly, I can tell you the whole story [...]

      A wrong is unredressed when the retribution overtakes its redresser It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong With this cruel vengeance Montresor, with malicious patience and deceptive friendliness, lured Fortunato into the vault and buried him alive in a niche The reader knows the target to be doomed and watched the drunken man step deeper into the snare As usual, Poe was able to portray the criminal mind, with its unrepentant ha [...]

    14. Mel Vincent on said:

      Edgar Allan Poe is a unique and prolific writer he delves into his writings in a way that it reflects his emotion and understanding of life we all know he lived a very sorrowful life from start to end and by choosing a genre such a mystery and sorrow as his recurring motives he has defined and made it one of the best works since Shakespeare I praise and admire his poetry and his stories which tell the readers that life isn t all pretty and I d like to think that E.A.P was the father of the detec [...]

    15. Ricks Eric on said:

      Once a reader understands Poe s obsession with trying to evoke the sublime uncontrolable emotion, such as horror or love in his writing, a reader of a Tell tale will see how masterfully Poe evokes these emotions The art in Poe s writing is how deeply he connects inevitable emotion of the human experience to the meaning of words through the pacing and rhythm of his writing.This short story is a must read If once can let go of there attachments to the world around them and be swept into the emotio [...]

      Another author whom I had the great pleasure to discover, while at University Edgar Allan Poe s stories are so dark, but impossible to put down He cleverly weaves his tales, and leaves his readers in a state of disbelief.

      One of my favorite childhood books.Yes, I had one weird childhood.

      Fear of being buried alive is the fear of being placed in a grave while still alive as a result of being incorrectly pronounced dead The abnormal, psychopathological version of this fear is referred to as taphophobia from Greek taphos, grave, tomb and phobos, fear , which is translated as fear of graves.Before the advent of modern medicine, the fear was not entirely irrational Throughout history, there have been numerous cases of people being buried alive by accident In 1905, the English reforme [...]

      Having not read Poe since high school, I figured that I would read a collection of his works Boy did some of them bring back memories.I must say that Poe holds up for me these years later What I really noticed this go around was the depth of Poe s writing ability to go deep in the mind s inner recesses Many say that he is also the father of the English language detective Murders in the Rue Morgue story, which I tend to agree with dating before Wilkie Collins Woman in White and The Moonstone.In a [...]

      The Cask Of Amontillado A man takes cold, calculated revenge on a noble whom he perceives has insults him, walling the poor guy up in a catacomb Very creepy, especially the part where he echoes the noble s screams read three times The Tell Tale Heart A elderly man with a cloudy eye is murdered by presumably his caretaker This reading really brought home how bat shit insane the murderer is he takes a full hour to put his head in the door The themes of guilt and paranoia run deep here Deservedly a [...]

    22. Phyllis on said:

      I absolutely love this short story, it does things to me as most of Poe s works seem to, to strike something exciting inside my mind I think this is one of the better known of Poe s works, something like The Raven or The Pit and the Pendulum Poe does a very good job of making you invested in the characters and the plot in a very short amount of time, as always, and gets your heart rising at the apex, which quickly falls to a satisfying insanity The man from whose perspective the story is told is [...]

    23. Ben Fuchs on said:

      In The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe, the narrator is a person who kills an old man Even though the old man has never wronged him, he hates the old man s eye because it looks like a vulture s eye He goes in every night for 7 nights and shines a light on the eye and then he kills him on the 8th night In the Tell Tale Heart there are three themes be careful who you trust, killing makes you crazy, and mental illness should be addressed.One theme is to be careful who we trust The narrator who i [...]

      I listened to this story on a record in high school as an actor read it in a creepy voice and I screamed when he described the heart beating under the floorboards I wasn t the only one either Fantastic story.

    25. Bree Garcia on said:

      The Tell Tale Heart was always one of those stories that stuck out to me because of the absolute guilt that the narrator felt Sadly, it always made me think twice before pulling a prank on my brother or doing something else I shouldn t have been doing I guess I was a dark kid

    26. Hannah on said:

      Really weird, but really good The Tell Tale Heart is interesting and oodly enough I even laughed a bit, it s pretty short and doesn t take long to read But I have to say The Black Cat is just as odd, maybe even weirder, and kept my attention to the end.

    27. Dylan McIntosh on said:

      I love me some Poe Not sure if I could stomach a re read at this point, but I may try.

    28. Signe on said:

      The narrator of The Tell Tale Heart practically admits that he s a madman, but he says that he s wiser than a madman, trying to use this reasoning to prove that he isn t He brags so often that he s not mad that we can t help but wonder if maybe he s actually aware of the fact that he s mad He denies that he s mad before the thought even crosses our minds In fact, his constant denial of being mad only makes us suspect his madness even His reasoning behind his belief that he is not mad is that he [...]

    29. Kara Collins on said:

      Even though this is one of Poe s shortest stories, it is nevertheless a profound and, at times, ambiguous investigation of a man s paranoia The story gains its intensity by the manner in which it portrays how the narrator stalks his victim as though he were a beast of prey yet, at the same time, elevated by human intelligence to a higher level of human endeavor, Poe s murderer is created into a type of grotesque anomaly In a sense, the narrator is worse than a beast only a human being could so c [...]
