The Folio Club:

Essays on Edgar Allan Poe



In his short stories, Edgar Allan Poe's dark imagination points to the back door of consciousness. By heightening the tension between life and death, and magnifying sense perceptions Poe reveals how horror can be a gateway to consciousness by teaching us to let go of the comfortable. His carefully crafted stories are a bridge between Mary Shelley's romanticism and Emerson's rationalism. Follow along as we continue our exploration of formation through literature.
