EDGAR ALLAN POE ~ DYING

in Art & the Unconscious Mind by
thepitandpendulum

“I felt that my senses were leaving me. The sentence, the dread sentence of death, was the last of distinct accentuation which reached my ears”

Edgar Allan Poe ~ The Pit and the Pendulum

The Pit and the Pendulum is a claustrophobic tale of horror and suspense with an overpowering atmosphere of dread that has prompted much discussion about the writer’s mental state. We could consider this masterpiece though as a compelling work of a gifted imagination.
