On a dreary winter night, a grief-stricken man sits alone reading by a dying fire when there is a tap at the window. He goes to investigate and there enters a raven. But what does this bird want? Is it a friend or some kind of demon? And why does it keep repeating the phrase “Nevermore”? In “The Fall of the House of Usher” a portent of doom lingers over an ancestral family home, while in “The Masque of the Red Death” a horrific plague threatens to consume humanity. “The Black Cat” features a cat who knows too much and a man who pays the ultimate price, and in “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether” a curious visitor gets more than he bargained for at a sinister asylum. This graphic collection of Poe’s tales will incite that sensation particular to the Gothic genre: a pleasing fear or dread.
