"I loved this story because of the way Poe describes the characters and their surroundings. You can imagine you are there in that house."

"It is my favorite out of many reasons, out of which the most important is the way it made me feel. It gave me the impression of a hallucinating world, restrained to the obsessive-compulsive outlook of a man who may or may not be mad. The homodiegetical narrator gets the lecturer so deeply implied in the narrative that he/she ends up asking himself/herself what madness is and if generaly accepted conceptions truly apply to each and every one of us, or to the world itself, for that matter. Another element that keeps me true to this story, is the circumstances in which I came to read it. It was the first story by E.A. Poe I ever read, and I read it on the date of his death, having no idea about it, and out of sheer necessity. Yes, I felt the need of reading this particular story on the date of E.A. Poe's death, without knowing what had happened that day, years ago. So there are strange circumstances linking me to it, as well."

"The Black Cat is my favorite because of the many theories about the second cat. The story stated that the cat had a white spot. Could this be the plaster from the wall? It is possible that the cat was not dead despite being hanged. The ironic justice that befalls the narrator and the loose ends left over make for an exciting experience."

"I particularly enjoyed this story, it makes you wonder who's mad and who isn't. This story requires you to think and it describes everything clearly and plainly. This is a logical work of art."

"I love this story, probably because of the way he wrote it. The details of how the people felt made me feel like Iwas right there with them. I read on another website that being buried alive was one of Poe's greatest fears, so I guess that's what drew me to the story in the first place."

"I think all of them are quite interesting and unique in their own way. I can't really decide which one is my favorite.."

"Personally, I enjoyed Hop-Frog. It had a pity taste to it, and it showed the cruelty of some people. I also liked the burning part. That was particularly my favorite."

"I can't really justify this choice as it is probably not one of his best technical or deepest works, but I always love to read it. It seems so bright at first sight, but there is only one character that is not dark or disgusting and even she is in on the brutal murder of those that beat her and Hop-Frog. Also, I love to read this story with my biographical analysis glasses on. Hop-Frog=Poe. Tripetta=1st Cousin/Wife. 12 Fat Men=Editors? Creditors?. Crowds=Reading Audience. Reaction to Alcohol=Reaction to Alcohol. Etcetera."

"I love "The Raven." To this day, it still stands the test of time, and it's really a horrifying story. It is a poem, but it feels more like a story, in my opinion. I just love it. Now "The Black Cat" is my favorite STORY, because it's also terrifying. Poe's work is so imaginative."

"This story feeds my interest in an actual, current time, virus called ebola. The allegorical interpretation, characters that challenge the traditional 'plot graph', and the demise of Prince Prospero are all very intriguing. Imagery is excellent, it would looks and flow fantastically as a short film (ah, one day)."

"This story surprised me with its depth and insight into human psychology as well as the modern world's easy worship of that eminently slippery concept we like to think of as 'pure reason'."

"I loved "The Pit and the Pendulum" because of the way he describes it. I love the suspense in it and the way the story progresses."

"This scared me so badly when I was in Junior High that I decided right then and there I would be cremated when I died and, to this day, 40 years later, it is well known that I will be cremated and not buried! Poe has a way that makes your heart beat faster and your hair stand on end and still you read him over and over again. His work will continue to freak people out for many generations to come. My absolute favorite author of all times! I also need to mention the last poem that Poe wrote, Annabel Lee. Even though it is a poem, it also is a favorite of mine and definately deserves mention on this wonderful site. Thank you for providing it for all us Poe lovers out here!"

"My favourite Poe story. I enjoyed it very much, I think it's almost humorous the way the main character behaves."

"My like fav story is gotta be The Black Cat because it's like wtf... that is seriously one freaky cat.. innit. Also the whole resurrection thing when the 2nd cat comes along with 1 eye. I could really feel the cat wanted revenge. x"

"I will always have a place in my heart for this story. It was the first story of Poe's that I have ever read so it is and always will be my favorite. I didn't believe it to be scary but I loved the way that Poe reflected a lesson out of it. "You do something bad and you'll get caught" or "Your guilt will drive you mad unless you confess" is basically the moral of the story. I also loved in the beginning when he made the character try to explain that he wasn't crazy while he was talking about a crazy murder plan. It almost seemed humorous in a way."

"I love this story, and I've never known why. It thrills me i suppose, but i fell in love with it and i read it over and over so much i have it known by heart. If you have never read it then you must!!! And if you have never read anything by Edgar Allan Poe, well do it cause i promise it will chill you to the bone or make you wonder how many sane people have truly lost their minds!!"

"Tell-Tale Heart speaks so loudly above all that I have read. The first time I read it I couldn't fathom it. It was hard to understand some things at a young age. But I made sure to re-read it, taking notes in my head. Picturing it perfectly to every detail. Understanding it to my highest knowledge. I can say I loved it even, for the story is re-readable, and always gives you a different feeling every time, unlike any other. It ties into my life only in my mind, in the deepest corners. To whom I dislike, every time I look upon them, its like the eye. But I sense no fear- I feel anger, rage, emotions that can't be handled with a simple mistake of murder. There the ones I have to heal, which the character, placed behind because he was the smart ass and a foolish madman. Once something is over, it can never really be. I can ramble on about the meanings of my thoughts to it. But my characters and shrinking into fewer, and my body is tired. Thank you for listening. -Roman"

"I love the poem Annabel Lee. It is soft and melancholy. It proves that children love just like adults."

"I have to say that all of Poe's stories are wonderful. In each of his stories that I have read it seems to emanate a sort of air that is mysterious and it just makes me think. Also, I feel a sort of thrill, like a roller coaster ride, yah know? I have sort of a morbid curiosity and his stories fit well with that. He is my favorite author!!!"

"This one is my favourite, because its written so beautifully, and i fully understand whats is happening to that man. It also has in it one of the most moving paragraphs i have ever read, "We stand upon the brink of a precipice..." it really makes you think."

"My favorite Poe story is "The Facts in the Case Of M. Valdemar", because it seems to me that there you may find a kind of "hideous intelligence" which is not so easily found in any other of his works, especially in the details of description, certainly among those of the best Poe could ever achieve in his writings. Valdemar and the way he ended up are as strange and as likely to disturb as the circumstances surrounding the very death of Poe, and the particular touch it has so, at least for me, and this sort of web connection, a web of a dangerous spider, make its being the narrative by his pen I enjoy the most a natural thing."
09 Nov 2007 7:50pm, concretehearts
"I love this story. Its worded very well and it has one of Poe's famous twists at the end. Plus its beautiful how much the young woman in the story was so in love with her husband. The Oval Portrait is definitely one of Poe's greatest stories!!"

"I think that The Tell Tale Heart is the best of the Poe Short Stories!!!"
14 Nov 2007 7:52pm, lawsons818stuff
"I must definitely say that the "Masque of the Red Death" is my favorite short story. It proves a very good point that no matter what you do, it is impossible to escape the clutches of death. As a Christian I also say that it supports the verse that quotes "the last enemy to be defeated is death""
29 Nov 2007 12:12pm, awesomemegan
"I really liked The Fall of the House Of Usher and The Tell-Tale Heart. The Tell-Tale Heart is really good. It makes you think how a mad-man would really act. The murder drove him mad. Edgar Allan Poe is a great writer. Some things are a little strange and disturbing, but all in all they're all really good."

"This is the story I like the most. It is full of horror, feelings and misery. I love the way Poe is managing the events to bring us a story with so many terrifying moments. Poe has inspired me to write horror short stories. I admire him."

"I love Hop Frog! I have always loved and adored this short story. Most people read and enjoy EAP's more frightening and horrific short stories but I really enjoy his more revengeful and sarcastic pieces, such as Hop Frog."
08 Jan 2008 5:47pm, jujuwuzhere44
"I loved this story for many reasons but the main reason is that from the beginning the main character tries to act innocent and pure, while in actuality he is a cold blooded murderer. He is trying to declare why he killed and why he was the victim, and how he tries to trick the reader. I love the suprising ending (although I had a feeling that would happen) also. The characters were so well thought out and described."

"this story had an interesting tale about the prince, but it is still one om my favorite stories as is The Black Cat, but i will never forget this one for i have told it to my fellow class mates in school. i still wish he were alive."

"circa feb, 1962, Eddie was seen in a dying cocktail lounge adjacent to Trailways bus station, downtown baltimore. He gave me an antique coke bottle stopped with a cork in the men's room, and invited me to share with him a "true nectar of the gods-- " "this is bell's 12 year old scotch", said he!!!! That whiskey was the most delicious i have ever tasted, and i will never forget that wonderful moment when his eyes locked onto mine, and I realized by his dress, and proper manner of speech, just who it was i was talking to. Eventually when all money had run out between us, he shook my hand, bundled himself in his worn and dirty black and grey colored raiment, snugged his large brimmed hat on his head, glided through the room, opened the door, turned right, in the direction of amity street. He disappeared from my view through the barren window, into the freezing rain of that night."

"I personally loved the Tell-Tale Heart, the Black Cat, and the Raven--I think they're all wonderfully told...you can actually picture being there in your mind, and you actually feel what the narrator is feeling, part of the time. I also liked Spirits of the Dead, though out of all his work...I would have to say the Raven and the Tell-Tale Heart are my favorites."
22 Jan 2008 8:43pm, mattduh24

"Angel of the Odd, The Oval Portrait, Mesmeric Revelation, Eureka!, The predicament, The Power of Words, Descent into the Maelstrom, The Island of the Fay... how do you truly choose? The depth of his visions and literary descriptions go far beyond his tales and to merely choose one of those is impossible. "De Angel ov de odd" is fantastically whimsical and as ironic as the Angel himself. To understand his fiction is to know him, and to know him is to love him... Every tale is a trip into his minds eye."

"These two stories capture the darkest part of the mind and seem to set it free. Both fill you with terror, sorrow and even a guilt of your own. I love the way that Poe writes his stories, he is among my favorites to read. His skill and the emotion that seeps from each and every line fascinates me to constantly. I chose these stories for that reason. I believe that of all the great stories Poe had written, these two are among the best. If only the writers of today had the skill of the greatest writers of yesterday."

"This story always gives me quivers up my spine. My favorite part is when he kills the old man. Makes me giggle every time."

"Poe does such a great job of describing the entire torture chamber, and really explains parts of the Spanish Inquisition really well. At the same time he is able to establish a mood like no other. Hopelessness, dread, etc. Plus he is able to write this entire story with only one character, who is facing an ominous pendulum. Though "The Tell-Tale Heart" is also amazing, I still think that "The Pit and the Pendulum" is Poe at his best."
22 Apr 2008 5:13pm, katieinfinity
"oh man, tell tale heart owns all. i really think it might be his best story. then again it's hard to compare to masque of the red death, but it's an amazing piece of work nonetheless; and will always be loved."

"I love this short story because it shows that no matter how much people try to escape their destiny, ultimately they cannot. The Prince and his courtiers walled themselves up from all of reality and tried to block everything undesirable out, but life cannot be controlled that way. In the end, the vicious plague wins."

"On the contrary to the idea of Poe popular with the general public being that of 'horror writer' I find his irony ingenious. Because it takes even greater genius to create SUBTLE IRONY, requiring from the reader a similar level of ability to reason. Actually there are more stories of this kind, but I find "Schecherazade" one of the finest examples of it (if not the single best)!"

"I've forever been a Tim Burton fan and I know that Burton's favourite poet was Edgar A. Poe. So I searched some poems of Edgar A. Poe and the very first poem that I read was 'The Raven'. I've also seen a video on YouTube, which has Vincent Price (another Burton 'hero') reciting this particular poem of Poe. It's something... don't have the words to explain... My only... how should I say this... Sorrow, is that I'm Portuguese and the books of Allan Poe are rare being sold here and of course... Poe uses an 'Ancient English' that makes it more difficult for me to understand the true meaning of the poem/story. Well... that's my comment. By the way, excellent site this one."

"The Premature Burial is my favorite for many reasons. The topic it is based on is not only real but scary and thrilling. The way Poe writes about it is bone-chilling. Combine such a scary idea with one of the world's best writers, a classic is guaranteed."

"Ok, call me predictable, but my favorite was one of his later works, The Tell-Tale Heart. I just died after reading it!"
21 Aug 2008 1:18am, plumberxangie
"I really love all of Poe's short horror stories, but my favorite is between three, "The Black Cat", "The Premature Burial" and "The Tell-Tale Heart". They're all just so twisted, yet logical. Imagine being in situations like any of those? Being any of the characters? They make you think about life and how the human body works, be it mind or heart... or any other organ, joint, muscle, follicle etc. I mean, think about it... in both The Telltale Heart and The Black Cat, something random and obscure drives the man to insanity and homicide. The Premature Burial just all around scared me, I shutter to think about that happening to me."

"Among Poe's stories titled with female names, say Berenice, Eleonora, Ligeia etc, Morella is my most favorite. It is hard to tell whether it's a story of love or revenge. Maybe it combined both? I love it cuz the ending is really fabulous. Pretty powerful and impressive. And that is Poe's style. Isn't it?"
21 Sep 2008 3:49pm, Robert Giordan

""Annabel Lee" is lovely due to both its literary genius and the pathos of its storyline. Poe's gorgeous use of poetic device underlines the tragedy of the lovers' situation. And I guess the hopelessness of the situation appeals to something in me. It is beautiful."

"The stories in which Dupin stars are my favorites. I love Dupin because he apparently was an inspiration for Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, and I love Sherlock too. I really enjoy the way Poe discusses Dupin's psychological observance and 'ratiocination'."

"This is a story I will remember for the rest of my life. Not only because this was the first Poe short story I read, but also this was something so completely absurd and terrifying that it can not be erased from my mind. It's great that the story is not extremely long, so I can suggest it to my friends, and most likely, they will take a few minutes to read it. Even though the descriptions in the story are not lengthy, I can see exactly what is going on, through my mind's eye. To me, that's the important thing about an amazing short story."

It makes me think, and it gets you wondering what he is going to do next. I just love when things do that, because it makes me want to keep reading. I say, I think i'm going to read it again to get a better feel for it. But I know for a fact, this is a really good story!"

"By far my favorite Poe story is "Tell-Tale Heart". In this story Poe makes the readers feel as if they are a part of these events of which are happening inside of his story... With every mention of the man's heart beat, you hear the pounding in your ears and feel it inside of your own head. As the story progresses you feel the guilt of the murder along-side the narrator. Every last one of Poe's stories and poems are pure art. He has a unique talent of making his readers feel the emotions being protrayed in his stories. I must admit that I am exponentially jealous of his talents because I, too, wish to be a journalist/writer some day and can't help but envy his natural-born gift. --Kristy K"

"Some words with a Mummy. This along with the tell tale heart and the premature burial are my favorite tales. Edgar Allan Poes pure genius in creating stories that, even today, still can chill the bones and excite you. The tell tale heart sends chills down my spine every time i read it. The way everything is so vividly described, the way you can "hear" the heart beating, as if you were in the same room. Some Words with a Mummy is one of my favorites because of the humor. While reading it i hadn't read much but his tales of terror, and stumbling upon something (although morbidly) humorous completely surprised me! I found the tale wonderful and and have since been reading through all of his tales to find something just as funny. The Premature Burial was amazing. The way in which each account of a premature burial was described made my heart race. Some points in the story were funny while others were dark. Unfortunately i'm running out of letters so i cannot say more."

"This story is probably my favorite. I thought perhaps the twins were schizophrenic as it seemed the sister was getting catatonic and he couldn't escape his fate to get it too. It seems like some sort of mental illness. I liked how the house was really built up as if to seem alive. Very spooky and well written."

"The Tell Tale Heart is one of my favorite short stories because it shows a great deal of original literary work from Poe. It's amazing how Poe differentiates the point of view of the characters. Instead of being the victim, you feel like you are the suspect. It's also pretty interesting how he delivers his stories with such success and feeling that you actually feel that you are in the character's situation."

"I like all the Poe Histories, they are so dark, this is true horror, psychological horror, that makes you feel inside of your heath all the feelings. I like the gold bug because the narrative of the environment is excellent, but was difficult to choose between this history and the black cat. I think that Poe's narrative is one of the best characteristics of his histories."

"Ligeia is my personal favorite because of the atmosphere, subject matter and the details. That bridal room is so creepy. No wonder Lady Rowena started to see and hear things! There's so much symbolism in that room and in Ligeia's description. She has everything- brains, beauty and power. The only thing she wasn't knowledgable on was death. So she had to die. So sad. They loved each other so much too. It's like the only thing the narrator needed to bring back his love was a body- and here we meet Rowena. She never had a chance. The ending is so ambiguous but I believe that Ligeia does come back from the dead. It's a great story. The Raven, William Wilson- he actually kills his conscience- and The Masque of the Red Death are fabulous too! I was a little disappointed when I found out that the narrator of William Wilson doesn't actually kill anyone. The story made way more sense if you look at it that way though. Poe was so well leant. I love him!"

"The Tell Tale Heart is my favorite storie becouse 1: it was the story that got me hooked on poe and 2: it gives a poetic sense to the story that makes it amazing to be hear it read aluod. And if you are the one doing the reading, it doesn't matter if you have had experience in reading/acting, you automaticaly get into character. you feel the life seep from the dead man, you hear the beating of the beating of the dammed heart, and you the sense the insanity creeping up on you. that's why i think the tell tale heart is the best."

""This story was phenomonal. Why exactly? Because it tells the tale of pure revenge, and how sick and twisted Poe can make mankind seem. Out of any of us animals on earth. We are the biggest animal of all.""

"All of them are great but I would have to say that Ligeia is my all time favorite! It's awesome. She is amazing. I LOVE how he describes everything and explains stuff. The Raven, Morella, Berenice, and Murders in the Rue Morgue are fantastic too. Murders in the Rue Morgue- that's a twist ending if I've ever seen one. I would have never guessed an orang outang did it. The Raven is fabulous. My favorite poem of his-creepy and supernatural!!!"

"I've always loved "The Raven". It's got an atmosphere about it that I don't see many poems and tales have now. For my age I read a lot, so I find this as one of my personal and all-time favorite poems. Anyone who hasn't read, READ IT!"

"One of his greatest works in my opinion. The sociopathic behavior of the narrator, the level of irony present, there are many things that make this my favorite short-story of his. One of the main reasons I love it is because you have only the statement that "It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong" to let you know that he did something to make Montresor feel either closed off or trapped, although I could be wrong about this, that is my take on the story."

"I loved this story. At first i thought it was weird when i first started reading it but towards the end i really understood it. Its about a man who loved to paint so much he wanted to capture his wife who was his true love in a painting. He took his time on it trying to get it perfect while his wife sat perfectly still for weeks with the same smile on her face. She wanted to please him but when he was finished.. He was so selfish about painting his true love, he ended up losing her in the end."

"Does anyone know the name of the film and the short story it is based on! Plot of he film is a group of people are flown to the edge of the world in terms of time. The whole landscape is being destroyed by the timeeaters who devour what is left of time past (memories and physical structures including landscape. They virtually gobble up what remains. The title of the film and name of the destroyers come from some reference to Greek mythology."

"The facts in the case of M. Valdemar, Hop-Frog, The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether have all been mentioned as chilling in their own ways. Silence - A Fable has a special place in my heart though :) it's very descriptive + evocative and provokes thoughts on the nature of human spirit. "It was night, and the rain fell; and, falling, it was rain, but, having fallen, it was blood. And I stood in the morass among the tall lilies, and the rain fell upon my head - and the lilies sighed one unto the other in the solemnity of their desolation.""

"How can it be that none has mentioned this classic? This story is easily one of Poes greatest works. It tells of an old fishermen, now a guide, recalling a horrific experience to a younger man. For those of you that arent sure what a maelstrom is, its a monsterous natural whirlpool created by the choppiness of huge waves of water in the middle of giant black and beetling cliffs or protuberances. He's caught on his fishing boat with his 2 brothers and the pull of the outer most borders of the whirlpool are sucking them closer and closer towards the vortex which funnels down 6 miles into the abyss! What happens? READ IT! Imagine this setting.. now imagine it through the words of Edgar Allan Poe."

"My favorite Poe story has got to be The Tell-Tale Heart. It's my favorite because it doesn't scare the reader with gore and blood, but with one's self inflicted torture with something so trivial. It's the way the old man's eye follows him around that is so creepy. The story is suspenseful but and shows a persons constant conflicting emotions. I love how Poe incorporates everyday feelings into this story, with guilt dominating all."
04 Oct 2009 10:09pm, addicted2moozic
"I LOVED the Pit and the Pendulum. Poe's skillful use of horror was downright creepy, and he must have had an acute knowledge of human nature to understand what would absolutely terrify anyone and everyone. To imagine yourself in the place of that poor prisoner..."
06 Oct 2009 10:08am, PinkAKAJenna
"The Tell-Tale Heart is my favorite Poe story. I like this story because the man is slowly driven mad by his own guilt after taking the life of an old man. As you're reading, you feel the gut wrenching guilt the man does. Poe describes the story in such detail when I was reading it myself, I started to feel that mysterious feeling; as if I was being watched as well."

"Annabel Lee is my favorite story (technically poem, but it tells a story) by Edgar Allan Poe. It is sweet but it also shows how lonely Poe and the speaker were. The ryhme and repitition add to the playfulness, while the actual words and meanings are chilling. He speaks of a widowed lover and his solitary life without her. It is considered one of Poe's least melancholy poems, and while I do enjoy some of his creepier work, I like "Annabel Lee" the most."

"My favorite story would either be the Pit and the Pendulum or the Masque of the Red Death. Why? I'm not entirely sure; the Pit and the Pendulum is very suspenseful, and filled with imagery (like Poe's other poems and short stories). You could close your eyes and imagine the swinging pendulum dangling above your head, and feel the main character's fear and relief when he is close to being killed and when he barely escapes. One thing I never got about this poem is how the pit was there. I mean, the way I heard it, it sounded like the main character rolled off the bed-thing just in time to escape the pendulum. But, then, all of a sudden, he falls into a random pit? "Hey guys! I'm bored, let's place a gaping hole right next to the bed! Sounds like a great idea!" I mean, must be a very well-coordinated fall to land right in the middle of a pit, unless the bed happens to be floating. I liked the Masque of the Red Death because of it's uniqueness. And perhaps it's suspense. Not sure XD"

"I was struck by the similarity of the Poe's poem, "The Bells"(1849), and Thomas Cole's paintings, "The Voyage of Life" (1842). There are four paintings in the series; Childhood, Youth, Manhood, and Old age. The four stanzas of The Bells can be looked at as Childhood, Youth, Manhood (Maturity), and Old Age (Decline or Death). Look at the paintings while reading the poem and see for yourself."

"This is my favorite for a lot of reasons. It really made me think and try to figure out the real culprit and why none of the evidence seemed to confirm that a human did it. I have not witnessed anything remotely close to this in real life, but trying to see it from the victims and observers point of view, it's really frightening. All together, this was a very interesting read."

"I loved reading the Mask of the Red Death. It was exciting and eerie. I loved the part when they are at the ball. Everything is very well described and gives my mind a vivid picture of what's going on. The tall figure with the bloody mask is like putting the plague into the from of a person. It is very intense when "he" and the prince are after each other. It is almost ironic at the end that all of the healthy people die from it along with the prince."

"The cask of Amontillado is my favorite of poe's short stories because it truly captures the sick, revengeful feelings of Montresor. It seems that Montresor is so consumed with feelings of revenge it drives him to insanity. To the point where imagining the murder of Fortunato brings him pleasure and makes him laugh. The short story is both sick and intriguing."

"Berenice is my favorite of Poe's stories. Once again he brilliantly captures the mind of person gone mad. He seems to have an incredible gift of being able to put himself in an insane person's shoes. In this story Egaeus, the narrotor, becomes obsessed with his wife's teeth. He became so obsessed with the teeth that after she dies he takes them!! Another wonderful, creepy thriller by the great Edgar Allen Poe"

"i have always loved edgar allen poes story the tell tale heart. i have yet to read all of them, but i love the most so far the tell tale heart, the oval portrait, and Eleonora. i loved how poe made me feel like i was there when i read through the tell tale heart and the system of dr tarr and prof fether (which is another story i liked by the way)!"

"I've really liked the tell tale heart, just based on the irony. He thinks he's so intelligent -not mad- and yet, he couldn't tell that in the end his conscience would prove the end of him. Coming in a close second would definitely be William Wilson- also a story about the power of a person's conscience."

"My favorite Poe story is "The Black Cat" the reason for my opinion is because it is filled with thrill. also it keeps you wondering what comes next. Very mysterious and skin chilling."

"Black Cat was a very scare story. I love the story because it was very mysterious I did not know what was going to happen next when reading though the story. I would say this story was written out very good and the plot was clear. This is my favorite poe story I think the only part i did not like about the story was he killed the cat for just being lovable i though that was a very odd part in the story but other then that I enjoy reading this story."

"My favourite Poe story is "the tell tale heart". I usually don't like horror stories but i loved this one because it was very interesting.. And the way he began the story makes you want to continue reading it. It's also very exciting because when you begin reading it you won't be able to stop; you would want to know what's going to happen next."

"I loved the story "THE TELL-TALE HEART"... It is so dramatic and very "in depth". I think that it's very dramatic because whenever i read it i feel like i'm in the story, or in the room, wherever the story is taking place.(SETTING). It is very interesting also because the way E.A.POE tells the story, and they way he is expressing himself, it is just really good."

"One of my favourite stories is "The Tell-Tale Heart". It talks about a murder annoyed from an old guy's EYE! Its a HORROR story! Scary for some reason, but i enjoyed reading it! The style of the writing was unclear for some parts, but it makes the reader figure out the unclear part! Hoping to read more stories by Edgar Allen Poe. The End."

"I really liked the tell tale heart the most because it was so interesting. it catches the readers attention. it makes the reader want to go above and beyond. it makes the reader love the story. it is just an amazing story. and when he explains the heart beats and the vulture eye, it's like you can see it playing as a movie. all his stories are amazing. i still got loads to read though. Haha. i wish he was alive today to see if his style of writing changed or if it will stay the same. Ugh, i'll never know. )-="

"Even though The Lake is not a story I feel it tells my story. The first time I had seen death,as Poe describes it a "poisonous wave", my eyes were open to what was really around me and how this world actually is. Death is not the best emotion to be dealt with alone so I would turn to poetry, particularly Edgar Allan Poe."

"I like them all! Poe tells all his stories in a very unique way. Sure they may be violent and full of atrocity but I enjoy them. His story was so vicious and exposed the wickedness of the human heart that all the things that happened in the story are a reality. -CoolCat22"

"The Black Cat was definitely one of Poe's most gruesome stories. But then again - all of his stories are mastered with deep macabre. I think I really liked this one because.. oh, I'm not sure. I just like tragic stories, I guess, and I'm definitely a fan of horror and macabre prose/literature. -Candice[:"

"It's my favorite because its terrifying, at least it is to me. I was reading alone in my empty home, maybe wasn't a good idea. I think you can almost relate. Here is a normal man taken in a home to see his old friend taken in by a mental illness. I would say it could happen to anyone but it also could not. Its beginning (the description of the house) i will never forget it was so perfectly done. Imagine what Poe was thinking and feeling like, when he wrote it. Mind boggling, to say for lack of better words."

"I first read this amazing story in English Class in 9th grade. I already loved Edgar but this was the first time I read any of his stories. I lived in a small town so I could never find any of his books. So in 11th grade I did a book report on him and got an A+ plus I got to learn a lot more about him. This story speaks a lot about his mind, all of his stories did but just he was a mad man in a sense which makes his death even better. I also really like the Red Death story how it's about the plague and just you can't ignore death he'll find a way NO MATTER WHAT."

His voice is never above a loud whisper because of a defect in his body. It creeped me out once I got into the story. Thank you- Students from a highschool"

"The Gold-Bug is my favorite Poe tale. The reason is that he has hidden a dual cryptic message in the plaintext of the tale's cryptogram.

"After thinking upon this matter for some time I have come to the conclusion that I have two, for one can be no greater than the other. The Tell-Tale Heart is one that I can read and it's jamais vu all over again. He explains the character's mindset so well and in such detail that I find myself thinking just as he. It's also one that I love to read aloud to myself, because spoken the words have much more impact. The other that I love is the Masque of the Red Death, read in the seclusion of one's own room in the middle of a storm can give such a pleasantly scared feeling I try to do it every time such a storm occurs. The haunting scene at the end when death walks through all the rooms of the castle is so wonderful. Poe has such an amazing way with words, it's like he can mold them into what he wants. I'm so glad he took the time to share them with us, we'd be missing out if he hadn't. Yours truly, ~Briar"

"My all time favorite short story by Poe is Eleanora. It shows how devoted he was with love and how everything seemed so much clearer to him once he found Eleanora. The ending is a bit melancholy, but he has that bit of hope that she will visit him while he is sleeping. Her spirit does just that. He feels that she can still connect with him even though she is in heaven. Such a heart breaking story, but so beautiful at the same time. Poe is a genius. -bjl"

"I loved the story of the Fall of the House of Usher. I honestly feel it is the best piece written by Edgar Allan Poe. It finely expresses Edgar Allan Poe's art of totality, for in a relatively long story as this, i find that i was gripped to the tale from the very beginning to the climax. No page in the book was superfluous and neither was any part in the tale banal. I genuinely feel that this is the only author who follows perfectionism or rather totality in his work."

"My Favorite poem by Poe is "Annabel Lee". It is my favorite because it is about his wife dying and he is so in love with her, he never wants her to leave him. He is so upset by her death he blames God. He blames God for being envious of their love, and thats why God killed her. Poe may have been crazy and thats why he blamed God for killing Annabel Lee but his love was clearly real. Thats why I like this poem best....... Sabryna"

"I have to say my favorite literary work is Annabel Lee. It was the first piece I read besides the Raven that really interested me in his writing since I was about 11 years old (I'm 28 now) From there I could not get enough of his life and stories. I am also lucky enough to live in the Bronx, and visit the Poe Cottage at Fordham where he actually wrote the poem Annabel Lee and where he lived with his wife and aunt. Check out "Poe Cottage at Fordham" on Facebook if interested :)"

"My favorite story is " The Black Cat". Even though some parts in the story are kinda gory like when he cut the cats eye out of the socket Thats kinda cruel but i dont like cats anyways. I like the story because it had many different theories about the second cat. The story stated that the cat had a white spot. Could this be the plaster from the wall? It is possible that the cat was not dead despite being hanged. This was my favorite story."

"My favorite Story of Edgar Allan Poe is the mysterious story of "The Tell-Tale Heart". The story gives such an eerie feeling as the narrator is telling the story, not knowing if it is actually a real story gives the feeling that it could really happen. I Love how the story has an excellent moral to the thrill of the Mystery. The moral is that no matter what, guilt will get to you if you commit a unlawful deed. Having no idea if Poe actually meant to add a moral, it makes me wonder what it would be like to meet Edgar Allan Poe... !Katie!"

"The Tell-Tale Heart is my favourite Poe Story. Like every story he wrote, he goes into extreme detail. Just the thought of someone dismembering a body makes me sick. And hiding it underneath the floor boards, its crazy. Awesome story though, Poe was very talented!"

"Out of the many stories that Poe has to offer, i found The Raven to be one of the best. What i liked about it was the mysterious build up that took place in the story. The late night, late in the year with a good amount of detail describing the mood was very interesting - A.Hamo"

"My favourite Poe story is "The Balloon Hoax", published in 1844, mostly because of the impact it had on society at the time. Huge crowds gathered to buy copies of the New York Sun, demonstrating the fascination of flying, that people have always had since ancient times. I also find it amazing that when the Atlantic Ocean was actually crossed for the first time in a balloon, the balloon reached an altitude of 25, 000 feet, as did the balloon in Poe's fictional story so many years ago."

"Well, I have read just one Poe's Story. I would say that was a good story. It is pretty straight forward because after reading just a couple of paragraphs you know what is going to be the outcome of the story. The imagery used by Poe is just spectacular; he really knew how to catch the readers' attention."

"I really enjoyd reading Eleonora. It's a lovely story. The descriptive language used to describe the Valley of the Many-Coloured Grass helped me to imagine the place myself."
05 Jul 2010 10:42pm, miss_sweetness_19
"My favourite short story by Poe is "Eleonora" because it depicts a loving relationship between the narrator and Eleonora. I like how Poe uses the nature in the valley to resemble the beautiful love between the narrator and Eleonora because this helped me imagine the beauty of their love and it also enriched the story."

"The Tell-Tale Heart is about a man with what he describes as sharpened senses. Poe writes the story from this man's point of view. This man is haunted by trying to prove his sanity. The "eagle" eye of an old man he says haunts him day and night. This old man then is murdered by the man of the "acute" senses. He is then gloating as untouched by his actions, but then admits to his wrong-doings at the claim that the old man's stone heart is still beating in his ears. I enjoyed this story because of the tug-of-war this man is in between his whether or not sanity is in his control. A fight that many do suffer from. This story is written with such description of the dark soul consumed by this murderer. He is haunted by his surroundings, and the way he is depicted in the story is so fascinating to me."

"My favorite is "The Black Cat". The story has all of the vivid details that Poe included in this particular story!!!"

"This was my favorite Edgar Allan Poe story :D This story was what led me into reading short stories and made me feel the excitement a short story can contain. Also, the intensity of the story hooks the reader into the story and when the murderer feels the guilt of his own actions, you might relate to an experience when you have caused an accident when you were young. Overall, The Tell-Tale Heart expresses the guilt of a murderer really well and lets the reader experience the intensity a person might feel after doing a wrong deed."
06 Jul 2010 12:38am, ringettegirl_09
"My favorite short story by Poe is the Oval Portrait. Right from the beginning of reading this story I was drawn into the deep description and immensely enjoyed the experience as if I felt I was in the room with the writer. I am an extremely visual person and this writing speaks to me in words it creates a visual image, Poe did this exceptionally well."
06 Jul 2010 2:14am, maf
"I enjoyed "The Black Cat" short story that Poe wrote. I enjoyed the dark mood and how the story was narrated by either a cursed or doomed man. The dark humour appealed to me. As I read and learn more, I am sure that my favourites will evolve with my experience."

"My favourite Poe story along with many others is "The Tell Tale Heart" because throughout the whole story Poe keeps you wanting to find out what comes next. The combination of the suspense and odd events that occur make it a good read."

"My favorite Edgar Allan Poe story would have to be "The Tell-Tale Heart" because of the suspense that Edgar used when he was writing it.

""The Fall of the House of Usher" One day after reading "The Martian Chronicles" By Ray Bradbury, I remembered there was this one story that mentioned The Fall of the House of Usher. So after I finished it I grabbed my dad's old Edgar Allan Poe college book and looked for the story and found it. The next day at school (in 7th grade) I read the story in my spare time and WOW! I was so impressed with it that I read it over and over again for the rest of the day! When I came home I told my parents about it and the next day I was so exited to read some more of E.A.Poe's works. I only chose this story because it was my first Poe story, really I can't choose because each story is POEtic in it's own way. And I hope Poe will always be in school curriculum, even when others don't!"

"I beleieve the Raven is one of his best works because in a way not only is it a good story but also can give a sense of what Poe had in his life, because the raven is like an omen that wont leave the protagonist in the story but also the raven can also symbolize poe's life experiences such as when his mother died."

"THe Tell-Tale Heart This is my favorite Poe story because there is a lot of emotion involved about the life of a man who is mad. It was very suspenseful at times and got intense at the end. I love his stories because they aren't really straight forward so you kind of have to think about it for a while before you get it. Even though they are a little creepy, they are interesting and fun to read."
05 Sep 2010 5:40pm, wterry14
"This has to be one of his best stories. I love how he uses the imagery and how he make metaphors. This story just kept me reading and reading. Instead of going with my friends and hanging out with them I decided to finish Tell-Tale Heart. It's amazing. You should read it."

"my favorite Poe story would have to "Pit and the Pendulum" because it frightened me, and it has some historical fact to it. The first time i read it i was confused and did not understand it. The main character is gruesomely tortured during the Spanish Inquisition. One aspect i like about the book is that it has very little detail and descriptions, so the read can interpret the book many different ways and relate to it. Usually a story like that is hard to relate to but not "The Pit and the Pendulum""

"I really enjoyed Tell-Tale Heart because I'm really into, I guess you could say, murders. I enjoy watching Criminal Minds, which portray serial killers. I find murder to be an interesting topic. Also, I like how the narrator throughout the story kept saying that he was not mad, but in the end, he really was crazy. He could "hear" the heart, which could also come with guilt. But why would someone kill another because of the person's eye? Crazy stuff. I think that the story is well written and how he portrays the character is very interesting and original."
06 Sep 2010 10:54pm, wterry14
"This is one of his best stories ever written. I love how he gets the caretaker arrested. Saying that the old man's heart was beating when it was really his own. I sometimes wonder how he could think of things like that but even with the creepy plot I still loved reading it. It also has amazing Imagery."

"My favorite story was "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar" because it showed the imaginative writing of Edgar Allan Poe. I enjoyed reading about how M. Valdemar, who was to die soon, was mesmerized into a deep sleep, and even though many believed he was dead, the doctor continued to speak with him. Only when he released this "trance" from the man, did he crumble and die."

""The Black Cat" is my favorite story by Edgar Allan Poe, it shows how a man can go crazy after he murders his own loved one. He murdered his cat Pluto who he was very found of, because he was afraid of him after the man stabbed the cap. I thought this was an interesting story because eventually the man goes crazy and murders his wife, and a cat begins to haunt him. I would like to know what was running through Edgar Allan Poe's mind while he was writing such a dark and depressing story. Why was he in such a dark mood?"

"The Tell-Tale Heart is a fascinating look into the twisted psyche of not only the narrator but Poe as well. This is the first short story I have read that is clearly a confession. It makes me wonder if he is talking to maybe a psychologist or the police, his lawyer or maybe even a judge. It gets better and better each time I read it. I love this story and I love POE!"

I love how he describes them growing up together and suddenly one day falling in love i find things like that really sweet. And then once Virginia dies how it turns and suddenly there is a new women in the story. It leaves you wondering who the new women was in real life."

"My favorite story is The Tell Tale Heart because for whatever weird reason I love the part where the guy basically goes crazy at the end of the story and reveals everything he had done to the police, even though the police were not suspicious at all."

"this is my favorite, because in seventh grade, i read many of poe's stories, my teacher was very fond of him, but the one that drew my attention the most was the raven. i found the mystery from it, so intriguing. I was always on the edge of my seat. I wanted to know more and more. What was going to happen? Poe truly is an amazing writer, the raven is a fine example of that."

"Dear fellow Poe Readers, My favorite story by Edgar Allan Poe is "The Cask of Amontillado". The language Poe used really created a vivid picture in my mind. I could "see" everything that was happening. All of Poe's stories are great, but this one stands out from the rest with me."

"Dear readers, I believe you should read Edgar Allan Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado" because it is a very wonderful story. If you enjoy stories that are very dark and mysterious, this is your type of story! "The Cask of Amontillado" is a story that makes you wonder what happens next and you just have to finish the story to get the full effect of the mystery. I wouldn't say this is a horror story but I wouldn't recommend this for young ages due to the content. Very excited reader, MJB."

"I really like "Tell Tale Heart." It was suspenseful and very clever. He was really descriptive and had really good language use that definitely took my interest and developed the mood he was probably looking for. The more i read of the story the more i wanted to know what happened next. I never realized how great his writings are and how great he uses the language to bring out a mood and get the character engaged into the story. I found it ironic that in the end i actually found out that he wasn't actually as sane as he says he is. The way he uses his imagination and brings darkness into it was very interesting and made me be able to imagine what is going on in the story. The sensory language really made feel like i was actually there."

"It is full of darkness, pain and revenge. To make someone want to kill another human being for revenge that the person didn't even get a chance to change would take an evil and darkness a major proportions."

"I absolutely adore this story. It's creepy and mysterious and is extremely thought provoking. It puts you in the main character's head. I found myself thinking like him when I was reading it. Stories like that are surely ones to remember. Oh, how I wish I could write like Mr. Poe. He was an interesting character; that's for sure. I would have liked to meet him. There must be some truth in that saying that says, "There's a fine line between genius and insanity." Poe was certainly a genius but awfully crazy. I absolutely love his work though. Peace, Love, E.A.P"

"This is my favorite poe story. It is creative, and has lots of suspense and a touch of horror. I love the symbolism that he uses to describe everyday objects. My favorite part in this short story is when poe is describing the different rooms. It is vey unique how he does that. I love this story!"
01 Nov 2010 1:09pm, daniel6h
"This is probably my favorite Poe short story, because it explores the depths of insanity and hallucination from a 1st person perspective."

"I love this because of the vivid detail he goes into! R.I.P Edgar Allan Poe"

"The Masque of the Red Death is my favorite Poe story because it is the only one that I have read. It is a good metaphorical story, but the last part really makes no sense. Also, I had to write an essay on the orange room for english, and I thought that the color had no connection to the age that it represented."
01 Nov 2010 9:12pm, nelstra14
"My favorite Poe story is the Masque of the Red Death. It was interesting - in its own creepy, distorted way. I thought it was a great story, and it really demonstrates Poe's ability as a writer of this genre!"

"The Tell Tale Heart is the first book of Poe's that I have ever read. So far I am on the page with him and the police officers sitting in the living room. The police do not know that they are sitting over the mans body. I really do think that this book will be pretty good."
01 Nov 2010 11:04pm, gianna15
"My favorite Poe Story would have to be Tell-Tale heart because it talks about how things you lie about eat away at you until you tell someone or confess to doing something."

"My curiosity for why and what Poe wrote certain stories for has been partially relieved with this work supporting one of my theories behind it. His experiences, like many modern day writers, help create some of the most perplexing and haunting pieces. This particular story seemed more real than some of his other's, too. For instance, yes there are fictional characters, but, in the first paragraph, the word that captured my attention from the get go was the word avatar and the way it was used. The way it was used made me think that the red death was the dreaded tuberculosis which, as a young child, he lost his single mother to. Then following his wonderful step mother. Finally, his own wife died of the horrifying disease. Can you imagine watching the people you loved the most bleed to death in a time where hope for survival was outweighed by all odds. This story, unlike many of his others, created an insight to his life, which I was hoping i would find in his poetic work somewhere."

"My favorite Poe story is without a doubt The Masque of the Red Death. I love it for the vivid depictions and symbolism, how each color shows the stages of life, and the true meaning and emotion behind the story."
02 Nov 2010 10:12am, lainalu42597
"My favorite Poe story/poem is "The Bells." This is my favorite because it describes many different feels for what bells can mean. Happiness, danger, death, etc. It can effect all people in one way or another."
02 Nov 2010 6:20pm, devanmaxwell1996
"I really liked the story "Tell-Tale Heart" because he wrote it to make the narrator explain how he is not insane when he clearly is."

"I liked Murders in the Rue Morgue the most not only because of the bizarre unthinkable ending, but because of the many detective novels that spawned after this original story, although none of them belonged to Poe but this one."
02 Nov 2010 7:32pm, golfer1096
"I enjoy Poe's story "Murders in the Rue Morgue." It is a fascinating story with a dramatic twist! One of Poe's best!"

"Annabel Lee is my favorite. It makes me think about angels coming to take her away while he is mourning at her grave. It makes me feel sorry for him. He loved her so much he dreamed about her every night. Derek E. (Ms. Impson's class)"
03 Nov 2010 10:04am, sdefrgth
"My favorite poe story so far is the Black Cat. It is total madness and the whole story over Edgar's character becomes insane. He does things he would never ever do and thinks about things he should never think about. That aspect leaves the reader thinking,"How bad WAS this cat?""
03 Nov 2010 11:48am, wadestroda
"I liked the quote about rain falling and after it had fallen it was blood. I also like the quote where it said that people who dream during the day realize more things than those who only dream at night."
03 Nov 2010 2:12pm, Mybluelupe
"It's such a gripping tale. The first cat is killed but a question comes up in your head, did he actually die? Then the second cat comes along, as if a reminder to the horrible deed done before. The cat seems to be taunting him, like a spirit brought back. Even though it's a gruesome ending, it's still good."
03 Nov 2010 3:56pm, helmkat14
"This story was my favorite because i thought i found it very suspenseful and eerie. I thought it was insane how he killed the man who had done nothing to him his entire life. My favorite part was when the police came over to search the house and he acted like they would never ever find out, he was so confident about it. I wouldn't mind reading this story again because it was really interesting."
03 Nov 2010 4:33pm, abberz04
"this short story would by far be my favorite because i love mysteries.. of course im more into the way more bad murders and like disappearance stuff but its still a mystery... i like trying to figure out who the murderer was.. i have learned that the last person you think it will be is usually the murderer or kidnapper or whatever the case is. but this one is definitely my favorite!!"

"Again, The Masque of the Red Death is my favorite Poe story. I find it so thrilling, and the how the seven rooms represent the stages of life. Wow. I also like how he put when the clock chimes everyone would stop the dancing, laughter, and talking and remember why they were really at the Prince's house. If no one has ever read this story, its a MUST read. MUST MUST MUST."
05 Nov 2010 1:51am, bailey.reagan.17
"I liked this story the most because it was very dark, disturbing, and also very suspenseful. When you think the worst is going to happen something changes and it twists your mind. It shows you how dark and weird Edgar Allan Poe really was. This story stood out to me the most."

It was easy to understand, and the fact that it DID rhyme made it 9821198712 times better. :) I like poems that keep it going, and doesnt get boring. in fact, my favorite part of this poem was the last stanza! that hardly EVER happens! :)"

"The Pit and the Pendulum is very good. I love the way he writes the story. Its so great!"
07 Nov 2010 5:11am, sll2797
"My favorite story is the tell tale heart because of the man trying to prove that he is not mad by calmly stating the events of the murder and that he hears the heart after the man is dead and then he admits that he murdered him."
08 Nov 2010 9:29pm, amberbond09
"The Tell-Tale Heart was my favorite because it was exciting. It had suspense because you didnt know what was going to happen when the police got to the old man's house because they got a noise complaint. Then the narrator showed them the body parts under the plank, was shocking."

12 Nov 2010 1:59am, goustfreak
"Even though The Raven is short and is a poem, I still think it is well said. It is a wonderful story talking about a person living in his house suddenly finding a raven. The person tells the Raven to leave and the only thing that the raven replies is, "Nevermore". The Raven talks about how hard things in life can be. It talks about how everything Can't always go your way. it is a wonderful story."

"The Raven is definitely not a short story, but the way he wrote this fairly large poem resembles a story and most certainly tells one. This story, or poem (whatever you see fit), has been my favorite among my 3rd to 5th grade years because of its disturbing nature and suddenness. My new favorite is a story by Ambrose Bierce, An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge. My name is Elias and I am in 7th grade."
17 Nov 2010 10:16pm, AWalker
"This story was really good, even though it talks about an insane man killing an old man because of his "evil eye". The man talks about how he isn't insane but he keeps showing us things that make him sound insane. People should really read this story because it very interesting, and I'm not even that old. Poe really knows how to make good stories and poetry as well."

"I like this one the best of all of his works. I feel like I'm actually there, in the story with narrator and I was the watching the whole act unfold. If you haven't read it, I recommend this story."

"Even if "the Raven" is not a story but a poem it's my favorite of Poe's work. Once you start reading it it sucks you deeper and deeper in the Story and you really get into it. Poe is a master of the words and in "the Raven" he tells a story, about the deepest feelings of a human being."

"Tell-Tale Heart. I like edgar allen poe's stories because it always has suspense and brings me to think and use my imagination to wander what else could have happened. I also just didnt understand why the man would kill the old man who lived his whole life with the "vulture eye"? Its my favorite mystery book by Edgar Allen Poe."
18 Nov 2010 10:09pm, baileyreagan17
"My favorite Poe story is the Pit and the Pendulum. This one is my favorite because there is a very suspenseful build up through out the story. There is horror which makes it interesting to read but in the end the main character still lives. I really liked that story."

"My Favorite poe story is the the Black Cat because it's very different and you never really know for sure what went on, it's just kind of out there. like if the cat was perhaps a girl witch or an actual cat the the people were over reacting. although in the end the poor kitty dies"

"My favorite story by Edgar Allan Poe was "The Raven." I thought it was really good. I really liked how throughout the story he fills our head with a lot of doubt. How we didn't know if the man was alive or not or what lead him to his death. Personally I loved it!"

""The Tell-Tale Heart" is one of my favorite stories by Poe. It is a bit scary, but I love it! When I first read it I was very freaked out. I recently read it again and I am truly fascinated by how Poe writes!"
29 Nov 2010 9:22am, carebearsonfire93
"It's the only Edgar Allan Poe story I have read. I think it does make you think because the narrator is a mad man confessing to a murder, mainly because he's guilty. Though it didn't frighten me, it is a rather insane story to read. The story is full of contradictions, however. The narrator admits to being very nervous, though he doesn't understand why people should think he's crazy."

"I honestly like The Raven because it was an interesting beginning and it was kind of scary to me. If some people read it right now than they wouldn't think it was all that scary, but just imagine yourself in that situation that this person was in; the tapping, and of course the raven. That is why I think The Raven is a good short Edgar Allan Poe story."

The story seems so real, it makes you want to stop reading but the suspence makes you keep reading on. It is creepy and very descriptive in a grossly way. But to keep yourself from feeling too bad about what is happening throughout the story, you have to read until the very end when the cat gets his revenge."

"I really enjoyed this story. It was suspenseful and at times frightening which is what kept me reading the story. I also liked the moral of the story which was that your guilt will drive you mad unless you confess."

"The Gold Bug was such an amazing story to a twelve year old. It has been almost fifty years since I first read the story. I have since read all the others and all are great. There is something for everyone. For terror read Tell-tale Heart, The Black Cat. Revenge make it Hop-Frog, The Cask of Amontillado. Mystery read the Dupin stories. Humor The System of Dr Tarr. Loss of Breath, The Man that was Used Up. Adventure A. Gordon Pym, Julius Rodman, Hans Phall. Romance Eleonora, Ligeia, The Oval Portrait. I also very much like MS Found in a Bottle and A Descent into the Maelstrom"

"Ma nouvelle favorite is definitely "The Tell-Tale Heart". Maybe it's because this is the first I've read by this author, and it will not be the last. His particular style, atmosphere ... The film takes place in our heads throughout our reading. Edgar Allan Poe is now part of my favorite writers."

"Three Way Tie... "I really love all of Poe's short horror stories, but my favorite is between three, "The Black Cat", "The Premature Burial" and "The Tell-Tale Heart". They're all just so twisted, yet logical. Imagine being in situations like any of those? Being any of the characters? They make you think about life and how the human body works, be it mind or heart... or any other organ, joint, muscle, follicle etc. I mean, think about it... in both The Tell tale Heart and The Black Cat, something random and obscure drives the man to insanity and homicide. The Premature Burial just all around scared me, I shutter to think about that happening to me.""

Recently my grandfather passed away and I told him I liked to write (short stories) but struggled to get my ideas together, he told me I should write poetry and so now I always have a notebook with me writing down poems...I've always been fascinated by Mr. Poe, your website is wonderful. Thank you so very, very much! :) this wasn't a story, but wanted to thank you for the site :)"

"The Tell Tale Heart is my favorite Edgar Allen Poe story because it makes you speculate about the state of mind Edgar is in. He is mad and also sane at the same time. His madness is shown by how he murders the old man only because of his eye and how he reveals himself at the end as the murderer. His saneness is shown by how cleverly he hides the body and how stealthily he opens the old man's door and sneaks into his room. This is my favorite story because it makes you think."

"My favorite story is "The Black Cat" because I like the way how the story is about a cat that has a second life and because I like it when something happens all of a sudden with only a few clues that said that it would happen. Like when it turns out that the cat the man found in the drinking house was the cat that the man killed when he was very drunk. It was very freaky and scary because it surprised me!"

"I read the story, The Gold Bug, with great interest, however the language used was sometimes hard to understand. It was mysterious and the island had a really nice name. Solving a code seems like solving a multi-step problem. I enjoy reading the stories of Edgar Allan Poe. By this way, you not only have a great time but also you learn new words in literature."

"This story was a truly interesting one to read. It showcases how human nature will lead the rich to believing that they can cheat death by buying their way out, in this case being Prospero locking himself and other rich people away in his castle for a masquerade ball, and finding out that no one can cheat death, and all men, rich or poor, must die eventually."

I have always thought of being buried, even cremation, but this story may have made me think twice about this. This story is very spooky and detailed, to the point to were you can imagine the whole thing happening in front of you. But overall, this was a great piece of literature, intriguing, horror, and descriptive."

"So far, my favorite story of Poe's is The Black Cat. I like it a lot, because it's the kind of story that sticks in your mind even days after reading it. I myself have a black dog at home, and like animals, just as the narrator did at the start of the book. The feelings of rage and guilt which the narrator experiences are very real, and it's almost as if I was there in his shoes, feeling those things and doing the evil he did. While reading, I sympathized with and disliked the narrator. It's both terrifying and fascinating to think of stories such as this one, which are more complex than good against evil."

"My favorite story by Edgar Allen Poe was Pit and the Pendulum.

"I remember reading 'The Raven' in class last year and getting chills. Birds already bother me, but after reading and seeing how Poe could really twist these creatures into such a monster made it hard for me to ever look at a Raven in the same way. Poe's writing is extremely powerful and can really change how one thinks."

05 Sep 2014 12:15am, 123
"I like this story very much because it's basically set off of Poe's life. A man falls in love with a young woman and then later she dies. But it's basically Poe pouring all his emotions into the book of what he felt from beginning to end."

"Tell-Tale Heart is one of my favorite works belonging to Edgar Allan Poe. Throughout the story it adds suspense and foreshadowing making me cringe. Everything about the story makes me shiver, but I think it had a great plot and was a good story in general."

"From the background that he comes from i think he is a great man and all his stories are very good but the one that really sticks out from the rest is the poem the raven"
05 Sep 2014 12:57am, bushvo381
"The Black Cat was my favorite story. The insanity within the man and the second cat was very interesting and mysterious. I think the he was lost in the craziness within him after he hung Pluto. The second cat and the continuation was the story might have been a mere illusion created by the chaos, guilt and confusion that was going on in his head."
05 Sep 2014 12:57am, w.fitzgerald19
"I believe The Tell-Tale Heart is my favorite story of Edgar Allan Poe, this is because of how insane he really was and how his mind worked. Through this story you could see what went through his mind and how interesting his work is. This story made me curious on what would happen, and I enjoyed the way he wrote it and how the details were added."

"Eleonora, is definitely my favorite story by Edgar Allan poe. It causes you to feel an eternal love that was destined to be felt between two even after one departed through after life. Even though the person still on earth has moved on from "Eleonora", who died from a sickness he still feels a strong connection and compassion for her. It is almost based off of every girls love fantasy, despite everything the love and feeling will always be there."

"My favorite Poe story is the Tell-tale Heart. The reason is because I like that the narrator is in the killers perspective. Also I enjoy the way the story is worded because it is so descriptive and it seems as if you are inside the story. The way Poe write his stories is truly chilling to the bone. I continue to enjoy his stories thriller after thriller and it is the thrill that keeps me coming back for more."
07 Sep 2014 2:48pm, kaylahperez0024
"One of my favorite Edgar Allan Poe stories is 'The Tell Tale Heart", which is creepy and interesting in so many ways. I've always wondered what he was thinking while writing this short story and all of his amazing works. When learning about him you kind of figured he was not the type of person who wrote about the sunshine and fluttering butterflies. With this poor mans background what else would you expect him to write about. Furthermore, this short story was about this man who took care of an older man who he had nothing against but his creepy blue eye which made the man uncomfortable... it was his eye! When reading this mysterious story it made me think if people actually thought in a way the caretaker did of the old man, I mean can someone be that mad about an EYE! Overall this story was creative and yet frightening for me... it truly did tell about the real Edgar Allan Poe person."

"The Tell-Tale Heart was the first story that was introduced to me that was written by Edgar A. Poe and is my favorite story of them all. The story makes you see the true mind of the killer. You can feel all of his rage and madness. The beating of the heart adds so much to the story and really makes you feel the guilt of the killer. I like how it makes you feel like you are actually in his position."

"My favorite Poe story is the Cask of Amontillado because the narrator Montressor was extremely cunning. He had lead Fortunato to his death without him knowing.

"This is my favorite Edgar Allan Poe story because I feel that it is relatable in the aspect that we all have demons and challenges to overcome. And I also like the feel of the whole story because it is ominous and suspenseful and mysterious. Throughout the story, we are experiencing the struggles that the character goes through and also the horror he encounters. we watch as he struggles to figure out how to survive. In the end, we realize what he was really experiencing and i love that because it makes the story even more relatable in showing us that the feeling he was having are real life feelings that happen to all of us."

"My favorite Poe story is the Mask of the Red Death. The Mask of the Red Death is such a good story, full of suspense and excitement. You start reading it, and you can't wait to finish it. My favorite part was when the guy in the mask appeared and everyone was wondering how he entered, and the famous black room. Overall, its a very action-packed story, with horror and joy all in one."
29 Sep 2014 7:32pm, carolina.b
"The Masque of the Red Death is one of my favourites because it has fairy-tale qualities to it but at the same time, it can be bloody. It is also short and for me it's length is just right for the reader to feel satisfied of the story."

"Don't bet the devil your head was my favorite story because, it had its own little ending. For example, The end when he cuts his own head off jumping over the gate on an iron support. That was not expected as you read the story. Therefore, my expectation was that he would fail by hitting the gate. As a result I was shocked at the end."
30 Sep 2014 12:48pm, eliana.p
"Masque of the Red Death This story by Poe about Prince Prospero is one of my favourites out of all his works. I like the use of symbolism and imagery in the content as well as the creepy and mysterious feelings within it. It had a complicated yet somehow simple plot painted vividly for the reader. The atmosphere of suspense on stories written by Poe are excellent."

"The Tell-Tale Heart is my favourite story written by Poe. His way os using imagery, all the details that drive you to see the old man's blue eye, and to hear the heart beating. The action of killing the old man perfectly arrange every-step, that make us feel, us readers, question whats happening next, creating a suspenseful and active story. -alfon"

01 Oct 2014 11:44am, daniela.p
"Masque of the Red Death was my favorite story from Poe. In this story he uses excessive symbolism to help you understand the meaning of this story. The clock in this story represents that their time is ending and that the disease "Red Death" is nearing the masquerade ball attendants. The Prince owns rooms with different colors, representing different things. The most important is the black room which represents death, oblivion, malice. The white room represents peace, life."
01 Oct 2014 7:13pm, priscilla.p
"One of my favorite Edgar Allan Poe stories is "The Black Cat" because I liked how he attached animal cruelty and death into a horror story, how he took the symbolism of the "black cat" and made it into a complicated character, that ends up being the protagonist/hero of the story."

"This is by far one of my favorite works of Poe. In my opinion, it's very well written and is very descriptive, with some stories, over detailing can get a reader lost but Tell Tale Heart doesn't. The insanity of the narrator builds suspense and you can almost feel how the narrator slowly becomes driven insane and how even though on the outside nothing is really happening, but on the inside of the narrator it's intense. Of course this is my opinion and I haven't read Tell Tale Heart in about a year, so my memory is hazy."

"My favorite story is 'The Tell-Tale Heart' because of how it is so suspenseful. It is all about a man killing another because he didn't like his eye. He had a strange eye. Nowadays, that is unheard of. So he plans his death for several days. Watching him while he sleeps, and then he wakes up the man accidentally. Then the other man peeks his head through and sees the eye. The eye that has infuriated him for a long time.He just rushes in his room, and throws him on the floor, then smothers him with a bed. After, he dismembers the body and hides it under the floor boards. then the police get called. The police come in and hang around until the man breaks claiming the beating he heard from this own heart was the heart of the dead man. He confessed to the police and that was the end. It was just leaving you on the tip of your toes wondering.. thinking if he's going to get away with this murder or not. Then you find out that he really doesn't get away with it."

It makes me think, and it gets you wondering what he is going to do next. I just love when things do that, because it makes me want to keep reading. I say, I think i'm going to read it again to get a better feel for it. But I know for a fact, this is a really good story"

"The Tell-Tale Heart is my favorite Edgar Allen Poe story because it was intriguing seeing how the main character planned out the murder of the elderly man he was caring for, while continuingly stating how he was not mad. The story really makes me think about the lengths of measures people would take and how a mad man might believe in their perspective of life, that they are the sanest out of all people. The story both frightened and brought great excitement to me in regards to the constant fear of the care taker getting caught by the old man in the act of trying to complete a murder and getting caught by the officers when the arrived at the premise. Overall, this had to be one of the best pieces of writings by Poe that I've ever read."

"My favorite Poe story if, "The Masque of the Red Death", I love how Poe used a theme and applied it into the story's settings. For example, the seven different colored rooms represents a human life time or time line, from birth to death. The theme that Poe used was that death is the inevitable and can not be escaped. I also think Poe had a great use of vocabulary in this short story."

"A great story out of all ones published by Edgar is most likely "Masque of the Red Death". This has to be one of his best works, as he superbly executed the grotesque feel he wanted to give the reader. His form of literature in the story is dense with words that so well helps the reader understand exactly what Edgar is trying to portray. Not only is the writing stupendous, but the originality definitely blows me away. Letting the characters try to escape an inevitable death by running from room to room of different shades of color, is a luring concept, as I wonder waht could possibly happen to the untouchable, wealthy, people. He definitely did a good job leaving the reader horrified with such a short story."
02 Oct 2017 7:39pm, strikeranjan
"The raven is by far my favorite story because it leaves so much to the unknown. It is up to the reader to interpret and predict the unknown parts. Because of this, the reader uses his/her imagination to create an explanation. This also means that no reader will dislike it because it is left up to them to decide."

"The Masque of the red death. I loved this story because it gave me more reason to think deeper in reading a book and the scenes that it casts into the story gives poetry a whole another different meaning and story. This short story was something that changed the meaning of the plague and how also someone so rich in that time was so selfish which led to them locking themselves from a disease that couldn't be kept away from everyone."

"My favorite Poe story by far would be "Annabel Lee". It expresses many emotions of sadness but also shows how much Poe loved his Annabel lee most likely talking about his wife. The line of "And this maiden she lived with no other thought than to love and be loved by me." This establishes that Poe's love with Annabel was inseparable. I like how it emphasis that their love was so great the angels even were jealous of their love. "Coveted her and me". This Poe story is centered around love and how love is everlasting and inseperable. In the new lines, the angels end up killing Annabel lee, however, even that cannot separate their love. "But our love it was stronger by far than the love of those who were older than we-Of many far wiser than we-And neither the angels in heaven above or Nor the Demons down under the sea can ever dissever my soul from the soul of the beautiful Annabel lee." I appreciate how Poe uses Alliteration to add an effect. Overall, the poem is about everlasting love."

"The Pit and the Pendulum is an exciting story that causes the reader to try, along with the author, to come up with ways to escape the torture. The story is so engaging that the reader is made to feel like the things that are happening to the author are happening to the reader as well. The story leads the reader on an emotional journey and the ending is such a surprise that you can’t help but,smile. However, I do wonder what the author did to get himself in such a situation and what happened after he was rescued if he had committed a crime worthy of the torturous situation that he was in."

"My favorite Edgar Allan Poe story was the Masque of the Red Death. The story is about a kingdom dying off of the red death and the prince doesn't even care. The prince holds a costume party, and when the clock strikes midnight, everyone grows silent. Enters a masked man who looks as if he is a corpse killed off by the Red Death. The "Red Death" walks towards the black room and the outraged prince follows him. Upon reaching the black room, the "Red Death" turns towards the prince and the prince suddenly dies on the spot. The party guests throw themselves at the masked stranger only to find there is nothing underneath the mask. One by one, the guests die off and soon there is nobody left. The candles go out and there is nothing remaining in the room but "darkness, and the Red Death."."

"I enjoy this story because I like the way he portraits the character's crumbling sanity. I like how it portraits the man as not being aware of his madness, to him his "illness" has made him more aware and sharp. It is interesting because when you are reading you are aware that this man is crazy but he is simultaneously explaining it how it is a sane idea to murder the old man. As he explaining he is saying how only a sane man can commit such crime but the reader is aware the the very notion of murder is an insane action especially if it is only because of someones eye"

"The Black Cat was a very interesting story with morbid details that made me want to continue reading. It frightened me because of the vivid descriptions and imagery. I really enjoyed analyzing this story and I have come to the conclusion that Pluto is a symbol of a child. The narrator and his wife do not have any kids, and for some reason the narrator singles out Pluto. The idea of a child comes from the general idea of the story being about family, home, and children, and animals. Pluto is the substitute for the abused child, and Poe even goes far as to compare the cries of Pluto as, "the sobbing of a child"."
18 Oct 2017 2:56am, madram550
"This is my favorite short story by Poe for a number of reasons. First of all, I enjoy the story because of progression of madness within the narrator. This not only is great because of the suspense it builds but also the irony it creates because the narrator's beginning statement was meant to prove that he is not mad. I especially love the overall irony to the piece since he tries to convince the audience that he is not mad because of the precautions he took in murdering and concealing the body of someone when he's really just proving himself to be quite mad. I also really like the use of hyphens and incomplete phrases since it really simulates the idea of a first-person narrative through the progression of thought within someone's brain. I just really love the story because of how suspenseful and twisted that it is. I also find that the story being told by an unreliable narrator makes it all the more interesting and unique."

"My favorite stories by Edgar Allan Poe are "To my mother" and "Annabel Lee". To my mother was a small story he made in honor of his first wife's mom. Also known as his aunt. Annabel Lee was about one of Edgar Allan Poe's many romances. It was sweet yet alarming if you think hard enough about it."

"My personal favorite of the, limited, number of Poe's works I've read is Annabel Lee. The sudden change in the story from a romance to a chilling, tragic story of the death of Annabel stuck with me. I was unaware that an author could so successfully change the mood in that of the drastic way that Poe did. I truly admire his skill and ability to execute the sudden shift that he so wonderfully portrays in his poem, "Annabel lee.""

"My favorite story of Poe's is "The Black Cat," I like this story because it is very humorous and it has a lot of details. The story is about a drunk man that kills his cat and after that the cat comes back to haunt him."

"I love the story "The Tell-Tale Heart" because it’s so creepy and interesting and all around fun! The narrator in the story goes back and forth between mad and sane, but the real question is was he mad when committed the crime."

"My favorite story would have to be Eleonora, it was an amazing story about the way love affects you and the way you view your surroundings. It was a tragic love story that ended in a somewhat peaceful way. He was trying to do everything he could to keep his vow, but the temptations were too much for him. Luckily Eleonora came to him happily and happy that he found someone to love him once again."

"Tell-Tale Heart was a great book for understanding whaat really goes inside in one's head. It was a thrill in order to read whether the man thought he was going insane. The fact that he becomes overbeared by grief says a lot. Reading it was interesting and complex."

I enjoy the suspense build up and some things such as why the police did not find it weird that the author was in the house the night of the murder were never answered."

""The Tell-Tale Heart" is my favorite Poe story because I really like how the main character tries to convince the reader that he is not mad and that he has a reason for killing the old man. He acts like the eye was the bad guy and not him, and I think that that is very cool. I also like that the heartbeat drives him insane in the end and he tells the police where he hid the body."

"Mesmeric Revelation is my favorite story. It's almost mystical to think about how a dying, hypnotized man could speak such words about spiritual entities and the universe. It makes you think about what's real, if Poe felt the same way about God and used this story as an excuse to disprove atheists and the like. It reminded me of the creepypasta "The Russian Sleep Experiment", which led me to believe that this is where they got their inspiration to write that story. Nonetheless, a great read indeed with a very deep background that will make you wonder and question the very nature of the universe. E Pluribis Unum."

While reading the selection I could envision what exactly was going on and I could even feel the emotion that was portrayed as well. I was surprised with how honest and real the selection seemed."
05 Jan 2018 1:43pm, irybak
"My favorite Poe story is, "The Tell-Tale Heart." This is so, due to the fact that not only is it one of the more often read stories by him, but it has such a good message on guilt and the way that it affects out lives, mixed in with elements that give it almost a taste of psychological thriller. It makes it an interesting read that I am sure most of us can relate to, as we all carry our secrets and try our best to keep the skeletons in the closet, but we let some things weigh so heavily on our hearts and minds that it just needs to break through at some point. Moreover, a graphic novel version of it was one of the first "adult" books (so to speak) that I read, and it lead me on a quest to find more good content, from Poe and other authors alike, and this gives it a special place in my heart."

"I found this to be one of my favorite stories because of how it displays what going insane can do to a man or woman. Doing something like murdering another human being is a big ol' mallet to a person's mental stability. It was also interesting how at first the narrator starts off by talking about how he is not crazy,though it is obvious that he is truly insane after reading the story."

"The Raven is about a man's journey and how he got over the loss of his lover. This is relatable to me because I have lost someone in my life who was also very important to me. His journey and how he dealt with his pain is both inspiring and spooky. One being because a bird that was talking about his life made him realize where he wanted to be in the future."

""The Tell Tale Heart" is my favorite story by Edgar Allen Poe. It emphasizes the aspect of guilt and how it can deeply effect a person. It has suspense that keeps the reader's attention. It is very descriptive, for example, the heart beat and what is happening in the story."

"My favorite Edgar Allan Poe story is "The Tell-Tale Heart" since it depicts an excellent murder story with vivid details and inflicts man vs. self conflict, which I love seeing in writing pieces. I also liked how suspense and drama was added to the story, although the reader knew what was going on, the police did not. I also liked how the different uses of figurative language and characterization all tied together."

"The Pit and The Pendulum was my first introduction to Poe and if I could only recommend one piece of his work, it would be this one. The way Edgar Allan Poe describes his environment and thought process is captivating and leaves just enough mystery to keep reading. The Pit and The Pendulum tells the story of a prisoner is thrown into a cold, slimey, dungeon. Where he is robbed of light or visual sense. He undergoes unimaginable horrors, made even more frightening when he can only describe it by feel. Although not a philosophical journey as some of his other works, The Pit and The Pendulum is a fantastic summary of the horror genre. Making it my favorite Edgar Allan Poe story."

"In 7th grade last year, we watched a little video on one of Edgar Allen Poe's story's where this man had a huge eye, and I think it was a servant of some sort. Was so irritated and afraid of it, it caused him to kill the man with the huge eye, and was pretty insane."

12 Oct 2018 12:58am, Mackenzie.thompson
"This specific story is my favorite because of many reasons, especially because the book shows off a lot of emotion. Edgar seemed and sort of confused the readers by making them think he was mad or he wasn’t. He made the readers question how madness was put into perspective and how others could look at that type of emotion differently. I honestly enjoy all of his stories and saying that this must take a lot of curiosity and inspiration because he really knows how to grasp a readers attention."

It was one of the first unpleasant/uneasy reads that I have ever read and it was really invigorating and suspenseful the entire ride. The slow breakdown to his obvious insanity was both satisfying and perturbing at the same time."

"My favorite story is Tell Tale Heart because I found it very interesting that it was told from the point of view of the killer. It was extremely detailed and made me think about how people that are mentally insane function. It also left some questions unanswered which I enjoyed because it let the reader decide and infer what happened. I connected to the story in a way because I get very paranoid at times when trying to keep something a secret and just end up confessing."

In nearly every paragraph it explains what's happening in a very descriptive way. Edgar explains how he's feeling and how it is affecting him. In the story he would explain how much he hated the old mans eye. He would describe how he felt when he got rid of the eye and how he showed no agony."

The repetition of "nevermore" adds a very creepy tone to the story and the narrators slow descent into madness just adds to the twisted feeling you get in your stomach while reading this. Also, I am a Ravens fan ;)"

This short story is full of excitement, and you don't want to stop reading it. I would definitely recommend this story to anyone who likes mystery, horror, or stories in general."

"The Black Cat. The story deals with a man who has a love of animals but equally a terrible temper which becomes agitated whenever he is drunk. The story begins with the hanging of his cat and resulting series of unfortunate events that drag him further into madness, as he believes that the spirit of his dead cat is haunting and exacting vengeance on him. The Black Cat is also interesting because it works on two levels with seemingly paranormal agents, yet probable enough that the reader is left with a distrust of whether they are really there at all. And this is why the story works so great, the subtlety and the explicitness of the horror are in perfect balance."

"I hate poetry and literature in general as I find it extremely boring and irritating but Edgar Allan Poe's stories and poems are readable as you can actually understand what he's talking about."

"My favorite Poe story is the Tell Tale Heart. I really enjoy this story because of how creepy and descriptive the writing is, and how it shows the narrator's slow descent into madness. It was also the first work of Poe's that I have ever read, so his writing really impressed me adding to why I like this work so much."

"the raven is a really classic tale that is eerie and can be interpreted in many different ways, for example, the way the simpsons did it."

"My favorite story by Edgar Allan Poe is probably The Tell Tale Heart. I read this in middle school and I really enjoyed this story because it is a good story but it is a perfect representation of Poe's style of writing. This story is a very dark and creepy story."

"I must definitely say that the "Masque of the Red Death" is my favorite short story. It proves a very good point that no matter what you do, it is impossible to escape the clutches of death. As a Christian I also say that it supports the verse that quotes "the last enemy to be defeated is death"

"My favorite Poe story is "The Raven", Poe really tries to connect to the readers head with imagery and the words he uses in his writings. "The Raven" is one of his most popular poems he has written."

"My favorite Poe Story is The Black Cat because it really shows how karma works in mysterious ways. He got a new cat to fulfill his guilt with killing his previous cat, and the new cat reminds him of what he did and Pluto, the previous cat, and ends up taking his own like life by hanging himself like he did to Pluto. And he killed his wife. I feel like this was a sign of almost honoring his cat in a way, by taking his own life he kind of owed it to Pluto for taking his life because he was angry and drunk."

"Poe was an interesting man who had a tough life and it shows in some of his writings. He loved the unknown and what could have been. So I think what he is saying is that matter and the theory of atoms in his time period couldn't have been true because he couldn't believe in something as scientific like that or with so many other theories of that not being true, unlike spirits which he believes actually exists."

"This story is my favorite because it shows that no matter what you are going through you will still feel pain and sympathy for someone or something. The black cat was Poe's favorite animal and he hurt it. He was angered and upset but still hated what he had done."

"I love the tell-tale heart because it was made to be scare and it weird to see this person go crazy while you are reading."

"I love this short story because it is the first real detective story. The other detective like Sherlock Holmes, Poitrot, Miss Marple, and more. Also, it is beautifully written with great detail, and it has an interesting format. Poe never went to Paris, but he has great descriptions for it especially for have never going there. On top of that, the details of the murder are rather interesting. Another part of it is I think is wonderful is the beginning of the story how it talks in a scientific manner which is connected throughout the novel. There is also the magnificent idea of ratiocination in the novel, too. I also like the vocabulary, the criminal, and most of all the sleuth."

"I think the Tell-Tale Heart is my favorite story because of how the metaphors will make you feel and just how eerie it is, it makes you almost think that he would've had to have been that crazy to think of something that crazy up in the first place. It shows a mood of hallucinations or of some type. It was my first Edgar Allen Poe story, and it sure gave me the perfect first impression."

"My favorite Poe story is not one of his short stories but his poem, "Alone." Alone is a lovely read for me. I adore its abstractness and its rhyming, an eerie tale that I have read for myself every night, and so strangely relate too on a deep level. It eases yet excites my perturbation in the strangest of ways, and I love to read it."
