This haunting tale is told through a first person narrative about a man imprisoned in a dungeon during the Inquisition who awaits his impending execution. Much of the story revolves around the description of the mans surrounding and the overally sense of dread as he faces the ambiguity of his future. Poe at his top form. Highly recommended.
