Edgar Allan Poe sits in the asylum, alone in the darkness of his mind – trying desperately to convince himself that he’s not mad. The spell he weaves brings us deep inside his complex mind as we experience directly four of his most famous stories and several of his most troubled characters.
The Raven – a narrative poem of a distraught man visited by a beguiling Raven – whom drives the man into slow madness.
Silence – an eerily beautiful short story of a woman’s complex mind struggling between herself and a Demon – in the wake of chaos and silence.
The Bells – a phonetically hypnotic poem representing the seasons of life – from a beautiful “jingling and tinkling” start waning toward a dark “moaning and groaning” demise – the bells, bells, bells, bells, bells, bells.
The Fall of the House of Usher – a story focused on the psychological complexities of hyperesthesia (sensory overload), hypochondria and acute anxiety – all issues facing Madeline – which drive her to resolved madness.
The Tell Tale Heart – a short story of a madman who attempts to convince himself – and us – that he is indeed sane despite the fact he has committed murder and experiences hallucinations of the “old man’s hideous heart still beating under the floorboards.”Leave a Comment Go to Post...
