really liked it
bookshelves: 2019, own-physical

The stories are creepy and well-written, the illustrations are amazing, and this book itself is so beautiful that I just had to buy it. I also have the Barnes and Noble leather bound book of Poe's stories and poems, so when I finally sit down with that, it'll be to read the poems, and any stories that weren't featured in this edition. I love his style, his poetry is definitely my preference to his stories, but they're so iconic for the horror genre and referenced all the time in modern works.

I would love to see, or write, some feminist retellings of some of these stories, because we all know the role of the female in his works is typically to be beautiful and to die. It's not a criticism per say because I understand it's very closely linked to Poe's personal life and what moved him, but it'd be very fun to play with and make some of his girls a little more layered.
