A Tale of the Ragged Mountains During the fall of the year 1827, while residing near Charlottesville, Virginia, I casually made the acquaintance of Mr. Augustus Bedloe. This young gentleman was remarkable in every respect, and excited in me a profound interest and curiosity. I found it impossible to comprehend him either in his moral or his physical relations. Of his family I could obtain no satisfactory account. Whence he came, I never ascertained. Even about his agealthough I call him a young ...

THE PHILOSOPHY OF COMPOSITION 1846 Charles Dickens, in a note now lying before me, alluding to an examination I once made of the mechanism of Barnaby Rudge, says- By the way, are you aware that Godwin wrote his Caleb Williams backwards He first involved his hero in a web of difficulties, forming the second volume, and then, for the first, cast about him for some mode of accounting for what had been done. I cannot think this the precise mode of procedure on the part of Godwin- and indeed what he ...

Steampunk Poe By Edgar Allan Poe Illustrated By Zdenko Basic and Manuel Sumberac Introduction The steampunk genre didnt exist when Edgar Allan Poe was penning his masterful mysteries and nightmarish horror stories, so you might be wondering how, exactly, the two have come together in this book. The greatest writers, though, produce works that transcend their own times, allowing each new generation of readers to discover them anew. And Edgar Allan Poe is nothing if not one of the greatest ...

X-ing a Paragrab by Edgar Allan Poe As it is well known that the wise men came from the East, and as Mr. Touch-and-go Bullet-head came from the East, it follows that Mr. Bullet-head was a wise man and if collateral proof of the matter be needed, here we have itMr. B. was an editor. Irascibility was his sole foible, for in fact the obstinacy of which men accused him was anything but his foible, since he justly considered it his forte. It was his strong pointhis virtue and it would have required ...

Von Kempelen and His Discovery by Edgar Allan Poe After the very minute and elaborate paper by Arago, to say nothing of the summary in Sillimans Journal, with the detailed statement just published by Lieutenant Maury, it will not be supposed, of course, that in offering a few hurried remarks in reference to Von Kempelens discovery, I have any design to look at the subject in a scientific point of view. My object is simply, in the first place, to say a few words of Von Kempelen himself with whom, ...

Three Sundays in a Week by Edgar Allan Poe You hard-headed, dunder-headed, obstinate, rusty, crusty, musty, fusty, old savage said I, in fancy, one afternoon, to my grand uncle Rumgudgeonshaking my fist at him in imagination. Only in imagination. The fact is, some trivial discrepancy did exist, just then, between what I said and what I had not the courage to saybetween what I did and what I had half a mind to do. The old porpoise, as I opened the drawing-room door, was sitting with his feet upon ...

The Mystery of Marie Rogt1 by Edgar Allan Poe Es giebt eine Reihe idealischer Begebenheiten, die der Wirklichkeit parallel lauft. Selten fallen sie zusammen. Menschen und zufalle modifieiren gewohulich die idealische Begebenheit, so dass sie unvollkommen erscheint, und ihre Folgen gleichfalls unvollkommen sind. So bei der Reformation statt des Protestantismus kam das Lutherthum hervor. There are ideal series of events which run parallel with the real ones. They rarely coincide. Men and ...
