I have here a classic for anyone who loves horror stories or themes of intrigue. The fascinating styles that we enjoy today can be traced back to these tales. And when you read them it is as if you would live them. I first read them when I was a teenager and, even though the wheel has now made a full half turn, I can sometimes feel the heart beats that come up through the floorboards and the mewing of the cat stuck in the wall. Although they were written by someone from the 19th century, they seem like they could happen today. He published various volumes of poetry: Tamerlan and other poems (1827), Al Aaraf (1829) and Poems (1831). His sarcastic essays made him famous but above all it was his stories: with Manuscript found in a bottle (1832) he won a competition, sponsored by the Baltimore Saturday Visitor. And don't forget The Well and the Pendulum. And don't try to read them at night, in case there is a power cut. !!!Ahhhhhh, you'll die of fright!!!!!!
