Subtle rattles of the pipes thought house is shaking it. Suddenly the house collapse but the Grandfather clock is still stand. Stand its ground thought the test of time.

While I sitting here waiting for life end. My hand is weake Hello there, anybody still active in here? What was Poe's influence on Gothic Fiction? He is seen as the Father of modern horror stories and maybe a role model for e.

But what was the difference between Poe's style and the style of the authors before him like Mary Shelly? What made him so important for this genre? I'm curious about you're answers In The Fall of the House of Usher the narrator reads from "The Mad Trist," in which a hero named Ethelred kills a dragon and takes the treasure that was guarded by the dragon. This reminded me of the story of Fafnir from Norse Mythology.

When he was originally a dwarf, the gods accidentally killed his brother, and the gods paid his family a ransom of gold treasure. Fafnir then killed his father and kept the gold for himself, and eventually transformed himself into a dragon and poisoned the land around him to keep people away from his gold. Fafnir's last remaining brother later sent a mortal, Sigurd, to kill Fafnir and take the gold.

There are several connections between the Poe story The narrator begins and ends by referencing a German phrase meaning "it does not permit itself to be read. Is he a hero? Is mankind at its greatest when wandering thus? Our favorite Poe Story is Ligeia due to its themes and the multiple ways the story can be viewed, such as taking the idea that the second wife, Rowena, did not exist I am trying to find a copy of a dramatised version of this short story written, I believe, by Anthony Holland and published in the early 50's.

Can anyone help with a clue about this seemingly 'lost' one-act play? Hi there, sorry if I double-post with the "Poetry" part of the forum You can download for free here http: Hope you'll like it! This may or may not run outside the UK: So my teacher asked us what can't Dupin deduce about the murder, then later he related it to Poe's other work, "Man of the Crowd," saying that if one cannot read or categorize a person, then that person is a criminal, and is that a fair assumption.

However, my thoughts were, well first that I could not figure out what Dupin could not deduce it may be the motive, but personally that answer seems childlike. Second that when Poe explains that man the narrator could not categorize in the "Man of the Crowd" as a genius of a deep crime that the crime was that of not fitting into the anonymous society, and not a criminal.

I can see that the man is a criminal, or assumed to be, because of the dia I'm not sure why Edgar Allan Poe decided to extend this story. It was first published as 'A Decided Loss. Now, maybe there's something I'm not getting here, but doesn't the last paragraph of 'Loss of Breath' kind of seem I get that there is no breath to utter, 'Amen,' in this story, but what is with the last part? Is he saying that philosophers should find God before they die? These seems odd for Poe Is it sarcasm, or was he printing it in a religious periodical?

As a matter of opinion, I don't like the part where he wakes up in the tomb and has the Right is there any chance that any of you lovely people could help me on this? I have to Psychoanalyse some of Poes poems and write an essay where I compare two other pieces of gothic literature for my Coursework.

If anybody could possibly point me in the right direction of where I may acquire information for me to build on my essay please feel free to PM me. Please submit a quiz here.
