Stonehearst Asylum: Short Story by Edgar Allan Poe

When a young man visits a French mental institution to learn about the hospital’s “system of soothing,” he is surprised to learn that it has recently abandoned the treatment method. Offered a tour of the grounds, he soon learns the truth about the new methodology put in place since the system of soothing was abandoned.

Edgar Allen Poe’s “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether” is the basis for director Brad Anderson’s 2014 film Stonehearst Asylum, starring Kate Beckinsale, Michael Cain, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Kingsley, Jim Sturgess, and David Thewlis.

About the Author

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) reigned unrivaled in his mastery of mystery. Born in Boston, he was orphaned at age three, expelled from West Point for gambling and became an alcoholic. In 1836 he secretly wed his thirteen-year-old cousin. The Raven, published in 1845, made Poe famous. He died in 1849 under what remain suspicious circumstances.
