It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but once conceived, it haunted me day and night.
Edgar Allan Poe
Is it what you call Inception??
This made me laugh way to hard. 😂😂
Ive always enjoyed Edgar Allan Poe, 'The Tell-Tale Heart' and 'The Raven' are 2 of my favorites. ❤
My 15-yo daughter‘s homework assignment was to draw an illustration for Edgar Allen Poe‘s short story, “The Tell-Tale Heart.” Using a diagram of a heart and a photo of her own hand as a reference, she pulled this together in about half an hour (iPad Pro.) Maybe it‘s because I‘m her mother, but I *love* it and wanted to share :-)
So I had no idea this existed! How cool is that?!?!
One of my favorite Poe stories. 🖤 Our narrator is quickly driven mad by the fear and guilt he experienced after killing an old man.
If you have a favorite Poe story or poem, please share!

This was a decent short-story; however, I've never been a huge fan of Poe (not sure why; I love Gothic literature and Victorian writing)... Regardless, I'm getting quite excited for the autumn season, so this was a nice story to start getting me more into the mood for autumn & Halloween! 🎃👻☻
Read quite a bit of Poe last night. Couldn't concentrate on my book for long after watching the news 💔. Heading to our friends in Cambrils next Sunday, I hope things have calmed down.
"For it was not the old man I felt the need to kill; it was the eye, his Evil Eye."
This was definitely something dark and twisted. The entire time, the narrator was trying to convince readers that he was sane but his actions says otherwise. I loved it. It's a great short read for in between books.
"And now have I not told you that what you mistake for madness is but over acuteness of the senses? -now, I say, there came to my ears a low, dull quick sound, such as a watch makes when enveloped in cotton. I knew that sound well, too. It was the beating of the old man's heart. It increased my fury, as the beating of a drum stimulates the soldier into courage."
This one's for all my goth lovers out there. WiL Francis was the lead singer of Aiden and now lead singer of William Control. He has such a dark, eerie voice and his audio reading of The Tell Tale Heart is so haunting. He also has a reading of The Raven, The Oval Portrait, and Eleonora. Check it out on iTunes!
Happy halloween littens!! 🎃 Whats everyone reading tonight? I've gone for The tell tale heart, it's so eerie and haunting...I love it!
"A day without learning, is a day not lived" is my life motto! Even when recoupering here in the mountains! But.. maybe I should put English aside for a while and refreshen my German ??
This story however, is perfect for #scaretober !
