Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) American poet, critic, and short story writer who contributed greatly to the genres of horror and science fiction.  Poe is now considered the father of the modern detective story and highly lauded as a poet.  Poe’s psychologically thrilling tales examining the depths of the human psyche earned him much fame during his lifetime and after his death. His own life was marred by tragedy at an early age (his parents died before he was three years old) and in his oft-quoted works we can see his darkly passionate sensibilities—a tormented and sometimes neurotic obsession with death and violence and overall appreciation for the beautiful yet tragic mysteries of life.



The Cask of Amontillado:  The story is narrated by Montresor, who carries a grudge against Fortunato for an offense that is never explained. Montresor leads a drunken Fortunato through a series of chambers beneath his palazzo with the promise of a taste of Amontillado, a wine that Montresor has just purchased. When the two men reach the last underground chamber, Montresor chains Fortunato to the wall, builds a new wall to seal him in, and leaves him to die.



The Black Cat:  The story is told by the murderer himself, the first-person narrator speaking to us on the eve of his execution for the crime of killing his wife.
