Overview

The narrator—a Mesmer—entrances a sickly patient who claims to be privy to a wealth of divine and esoteric knowledge, wanting to document his knowledge before he dies. The Mesmer proposes a series of questions relating to the workings of the universe, matter, and God. The client realises that he was destined to die during the interview, and seems to do so shortly after its conclusion. A chilling and though-provoking tale, “Mesmeric Revelation” will not disappoint fans of Poe’s work, and would make for a fantastic addition to any collection. Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) was an American author, editor, poet, and critic. Most famous for his stories of mystery and horror, he was one of the first American short story writers, and is widely considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre. Many antiquarian books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing "Mesmeric Revelation” now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

About the Author

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.
