On the anniversary of his death, we return to the dark mind of Mr. Poe with his final completed poem before he died. It was released posthumously. Our Google+ page, Facebook and Twitter @HalloweenHaunt are a few places you can find me. And many poems and stories are waiting for you at HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com.
Presented in its entirety, this is the longest episode so far from the Halloween Haunt. Thank you for pushing me to do it, Natalie. Let us know what you think on Facebook, Twitter @HalloweenHaunt and HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com.
For your own reading, you can turn to The Poe Museum, which is in Richmond, VA.
Mr. Poe was finally given a proper funeral, 16o years after his death. I meant to do an episode on it. I may, still, next year.
Here is another poem that feels right this time of year, by the inimitable Edgar Allan Poe. It was published in 1827. Please let us know what poems and stories you would like to hear at HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com.
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.
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.
