But anything was better than this agony! Anything was more tolerable than this derision! I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer! I felt that I must scream or die!

1) Not very often, I like to read/listen to books that occupy my time. If I do, I‘ll read a whole bunch at a time.
2) No, I‘m not. I just moved to America from Japan, ( military child) and I don‘t really no anyone because of Covid-19.
@ErinSueMreads how about you?

I should not have read this before bed. I knew I shouldn't, and yet I did it anyway.

It wasn't scary per se, but it left a lingering creepy sensation hiding in the dark recesses of my mind.

Definitely worth a read!

Happy Halloween!
I love Matthew Gray Gubler's reading of the Tell-Tale Heart. He really brings the story to life.

(It is on YouTube if you're interested)

Now I am ending my night with The Yellow Wallpaper.

I was watching an episode of The Simpsons the other day and they did their version of The Raven by Poe. I found it fun enough that I decided to read some of his stories. I really didn‘t like The Black Cat and The Cask of Amontillado was dull, but The Tell-Tale Heart was solid. Plus, earned some points for #Scarathlon2020 and #TeamHarkness!

KathyWheeler The Cask of Amontillado has always been one of my favorite Poe stories. 4y
NikkiM5 I love that Simpson‘s episode. I haven‘t read the Black Cat, I liked Cask, and Tell Tale is my favorite. 4y

1. One time in high school, I was singing a popular song to myself around the house. Then I turned on the radio, and it was the same song, starting just where I had left off.
2. I‘m grateful that my husband likes to cook so I don‘t have to.

Every year I taught 8th grade, I did a spooky stories unit with my students in the fall. The last two falls staying home with my baby and not teaching, I‘ve missed a lot about school, especially this unit. So I decided to host a virtual Midnight Society on my blog this year! Starting next Monday, on Mondays I‘ll intro the story, and on Thursdays I‘ll post some discussion questions. Hope you‘ll join at theAnnaKraft.com! #theMidnightSociety

HappilyEverKrafter @Laughterhp Thanks! I hope it will be! It was always fun with the students, and I loved revisiting the stories every year! 4y

The Tell-tale Heart | Edgar Allan Poe

The heart says as it is, only whose heart? The story builds up to a frantic finale in which the narrator panics that the truth of what he has done is revealed, that everyone can hear the heart that ought to be silent. It's a gradual descent into madness, all the while the narrator tries to convince us that he is sane. Macabre, creepy and poetic.

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. 6y
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😅 6y
