The Best of Edgar Allen Poe

You think me mad?

Saturday December 23, 2023


Raw Notes

The Tell-Tale Heart:

  • you think me mad. Nah, I’m cool. But the man grows increasingly mad.
  • guilt follows the commission, before then the guilt is only in the hesrt. After it consumes.

The Cask of Amontillado:

  • watch your pride. Don’t let it trick you into walking into catacombs

The Masque of the Red Death:

  • fruitless to avoid it
  • allegory of phases of life
  • Prince Prospero tries to fight death, but dies in the process

The Raven
