Edgar Allan Poe by demonrobber Edgar Allan Poe by demonrobber
Edgar Allan Poe was one of the great writers. He wrote dark, macabre tales about plague, murder and premature burial. This is my tribute to one of the founders of gothic literature.

The artwork by AbigailLarson and is also called Edgar Allan Poe.
Here is a link to the original artwork:

I am really grateful to AbigailLarson for giving me permission to use her artwork. I think it is the ideal choice. I hope you enjoy my poem and that you read some of the short stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe. They are truly dark and wonderful.

I love the Masque of the Red Death. The film starring Vincent Price is excellent but I also really like The Fall of the House of Usher. Thanks!

I get the Black Cat confused with the Tell-Tale Heart. Is that the one where he hides a body behind the wall and the black cat is also hidden behind the wall by mistake?

I have an audiobook of his short stories and a few dvds of his films directed by Roger Corman with Vincent Price. The House of Usher is really good. It would be extremely frightening to be buried alive.

no,no in the tell tale heart the murderer buries the body under the floorboards.....can give me the links of those audiobooks or dvds...cauz my parents allow me to read such kinds of novels....they think its too much for a 13 year old

Your parents may be right but the Roger Corman dvds are not as disturbing as modern horror films. They are similar in style to the Hammer horror films. They look a little dated but Vincent Price is really good.

I have sent you a note with the links. I hope you find it useful.

Gothic literature includes Frankenstein and Dracula and authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker. Modern authors include Neil Gaiman and Anne Rice.

In terms of music, there were early gothic bands such as The Sisters of Mercy and The Mission. Then there were bands such as The Cure and Within Temptation. More recent bands include Within Temptation and Nightwish. EBM music is popular in gothic culture and includes bands such as The Covenant and VNV Nation.

As for gothic fashion, I am sure you have seen the traditional style but there are sub genres such as Steampunk and Cybergoth.

There are a number of gothic groups on deviantart which displays both art and fashion. Alter-Personality is a good group to look at. Here is a link:

I hope this info proves helpful.

You should check out his stories. They are excellent. The House of Usher and The Masque of the Red Death are available on dvd. If you like gothic culture you should definitely read his work.

Are they movies?
I do like gothic but I think I'm more into horror stories, but still.
One question..... do you like R.L. Stine and Nora Robert? Just asking. :3

I don't know those authors and yes the title are mentioned are movies from the 1960s. They probably would be classified as gothic horror.

Thanks. He is a great author. I am presently listening to an audiobook with his complete short stories on my ipod. I think it actually helps me to sleep despite the stories being dark and macabre.
