Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849), wrote numerous imaginative stories and poems that explored the supernatural, and articulated a shadowed landscape between sanity and madness, death and life. Many of his works, such as the poem "The Raven," have become influential classics of American literature that still resound today. In this reading group, we will discuss individual short stories, examining recurring themes in Poe’s work, as well as plot, characterization, narrative viewpoint, prose style, and unity of effect.
This meeting of the Edgar Allan Poe Discussion Group will focus on three classic short stories: "Metzengerstein," "The Gold Bug," and "The System of Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether." Why not join us and share some of your own thoughts on these works by a great American writer? Tea and coffee will be available.
