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??

JacqMac Yes, it is! 3d

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 :-)

One of my favorite Poe stories. 🖤 Our narrator is quickly driven mad by the fear and guilt he experienced after killing an old man.

Mehso-so

☆ 3 / 5 ☆

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! 🎃👻☻

dawn-pInk I never liked Poe, but it took me googling some academic articles when I got older that pointed out to me the sexism and racism in his works and suddenly it clicked. 12mo
Eryn_Sutton @dawn-pInk Huh, maybe it's that. But really I think it's just that I don't connect to his writing too much😅 12mo

Today‘s socks.

Augustdana Hey, not being a weirdo, just popping in to ask about your screen name. I live near a ridgeway, just curious. Also I smiled at your comment on someone else‘s photo about Roxane with one ‘n!‘ The author is very particular about that! And that‘s how I found you, I had to click! 2y
RidgewayGirl @Augustdana, I lived for a few years on The Ridgeway, an ancient footpath that crosses England. Our house was outside of Wantage. That‘s where my name comes from. It was a beautiful place to live and the farmer down the road had standing stones in his sheep pasture. And, yes, given how much Roxane Gay cares that her name is spelled correctly, I had to be obnoxious and point it out! 2y
Augustdana @RidgewayGirl thanks for sharing! That sounds very idillic. 2y

"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!
