Photo via Biography. A long time ago, before the internet gave us pictures of cats in pumpkins to celebrate Halloween, people liked to gather together and tell scary stories. Even before Halloween as we know it became an official holiday the end of the harvest, the shortening of the days, the impending winter, and the chill in the air sent people rushing to huddle around a fire eager to scare each other witless.
During the whole dull, dark and laborious process of reading these melancholy tales, I have found not one mote of joy. I have hardly even found interest. Rather, to an anomalous species of boredom I have found myself a bounden slave. The accumulation of woe after woe, horror upon horror — and of longueurs I still yet tremble to repeat — combined with the repetition of themes and ideas, has become an almost intolerable burden. Did I just write repetition?

As a boy, Poe attended the best schools available, and was admitted to the University of Virginia at Charlottesville in While there he distinguished himself academically but was forced to leave after less than a year because of bad debts and inadequate financial support from Allan. That same year Poe was honorably discharged from the army, having attained the rank of regimental sergeant major, and was then admitted to the United States Military Academy at West Point.
What's with the ads? Just me, but for a 10yo I think I'd skip the short stories save them for high school and go straight for Poe's very famous poem, "The Raven". It's atmospheric, without being psychologically disturbing in the way most of Poe's short stories are -- about things like murder, revenge, torture, being buried alive, the plague, and insanity. I love Poe and can't wait for DS8 to get there, but I would be cautious at Lori D. I think answered the question superbly.
