Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Conqueror Worm”

 Some feel the poem by Mr. Poe speaks to the universal situation of man. We feel it’s another frightening glimpse into a deep, dark mind that only Edgar Allan Poe could really understand. But it’s fun to try. The poem was first published in 1845. We would love for you to worm your way over to HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com, and let us know what you think.

Background music:

“Remains From the Past” by Gregor Iliev (just a little piece–it’s worth listening to the whole piece. You may yet hear the whole thing in the Halloween Haunt)

Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Haunted Palace”

We descend again into the deeply dark mind of Edgar Allan Poe, as he describes “The Haunted Palace” as only he can. Poe’s mind is a twisted place no one should have to go…but we love to dally there voluntarily. Please illuminate your dark mind at HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com.
