Tribute to a Master by hanime87 Tribute to a Master by hanime87
The Lighter side of Edgar Allan Poe........
Well, this is meant as a tribute to the master on his b-day last January 19 (read a book dammit!)...and a parody too, for all sakes.
Contrary to popular notion, not all of Poe's tales are scary. Yes, they're dark and brooding, and one can almost be lost by the strangeness of his tales...but, after I have read almost 50 of his stories (and counting!) and poems, some are light and humorous...they kind of reminded me of the satirical works of Voltaire (Uh, oh, bibliophile speaking!).
Well, I'll leave you all with this^^I don't wanna sound like a Poe scholar...:D

Indeed, Poe could be quite funny; "Never Bet The Devil Your Head" is one of my favorites!:D

And what a wonderful one it is. Have you seen the Masters of Horror episode (called the Black Cat) where Jeffrey Combs (from Re-Animator) played Poe? I recommend it.
