Quotes from the book:
"Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute."
"Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence– whether much that is glorious– whether all that is profound– does not spring from disease of thought– from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect."
"Is all that we see or seem But a dream within a dream?"
Readers' reviews:
"Definitely not light reading, but perfect for the fall and winter. Very dark and poetic. Great stories, and each story is just short enough to maintain attention span. I recommend this to anyone who appreciates a challenging read." (Bailey Jane, goodreads.com)
"Edgar Allan Poe, is best known for the Raven, still the greatest and most famous American poem ever written." (Henry Avila, goodreads.com)
"Poe is, whatever you may have gleaned about him from cheap movies and comic book adaptations, a thoroughly top-notch writer in the Romantic tradition." (David, goodreads.com)

Аннотация

«Весь этот день – тусклый, беззвучный осенний день – я ехал верхом по необычно пустынной местности, над которой низко нависли свинцовые тучи, и наконец, когда вечерние тени легли на землю, очутился перед унылой усадьбой Эшера. Не знаю почему, но при первом взгляде на нее невыносимая тоска проникла мне в душу. Я говорю: невыносимая, потому что она не смягчалась тем грустным, но сладостным поэтическим чувством, которое вызывают в человеке даже самые ужасные и мрачные картины природы. Я смотрел на запустелую усадьбу – на одинокий дом и угрюмые стены, на зияющие глазницы выбитых окон, чахлую осоку, седые стволы дряхлых деревьев – с чувством гнетущим, которое могу сравнить только с пробуждением курильщика опиума, горьким возвращением к обыденной жизни, когда завеса спадает с глаз и презренная действительность обнажается во всем своем безобразии…»
