September 13, Edited by Lisa. November 28, Edited by AnandBot. Poe has always mesmerised me in terms of his influence on writers and the short story genre at large; his poetry is also both haunting and relatively accessible.
This collection was given to me in hardback, 31 years ago. Its pages are now yellow and aged, but the contents within are better than I remember. If you're patient with Poe, I think you'll find he's very rewarding in return. If you rush through and This will be another ongoing review, as I've been doing with collections and anthologies.
If you rush through and don't enjoy the rhythm of the prose, I'd imagine he'd be tiresome. He's one of those writers to be savoured when you have the time rather than a page turning entertainment. Even the eponymous title is a pun of sorts: Will-I-am, and Wil-son.
Through a doppelganger haunting William, Poe explores the concept of sanity.
An interesting story with long sentences but little specific imagery. Psychologically chilling. Not a storyline that did much for me personally. The unnamed narrator visits the crumbling gothic mansion of his friend Usher to learn of Usher's sister's death. But not all is as seems.
This story is the very opposite of William Wilson in terms of style. Rather than being devoid of imagery, Poe illustrates his stylistic variation and prowess with a story of sensory imagery overload. Poe manages this detailed gothic prose to build on an especially macabre mood and atmosphere. The language aesthetics here are as powerful as the story. Another strange and very frightening story is 'The Fall of the House of Usher' The character Roderick Usher has often been compared with Poe himself; both lived in continual fear of death and kept apart from human company.
Two more shocking stories in which death claims victory are 'The Red Death' and 'The Barrel of Amontillado' Set in Hungary, it is a story about the power of evil. Auguste Dupin, on whom other great fictional characters such as Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes were later modelled.
He hardly knew his parents, who were both actors; his father left when Edgar was a baby, and his mother died before he reached the age of three. John Allan and his wife Frances took the young boy into their home and brought him up as their own child. Between and he lived in Scotland and England, where he did well in his studies at a private school near London.
