Remature Burial The horrors of the Spanish Inuisition with its dungeon of Fall of the PDFEPUB #195 death and the overhanging gloom on the House of Usher demonstrate unforgettably the uniue imagination of Edgar Allan Poe Unerringl. I ve been slowly working my way through this over the past six months reading a story here and there Initially I was uite daunted by the idea of Edgar Allan Poe but as I progressed through the collection I found myself relaxing into it and just enjoying the writing There were many standout stories in this collection but I did especially enjoy The Fall of the House of Usher The Pit and the Pendulum The Premature Burial The Black Cat The Masue of the Red Death The Tell tale Heart and The Spectacles which was a rather funny story The Domain of Arnheim and Landor s Cottage were the only two stories that I found myself having to make an effort to maintain my focus they were beautifully written though and not too long I m glad I read this and intend to read Poe soon
