review The Pit and the Pendulum Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB free download ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ä Edgar Allan Poe Edgar Allan Poe ä 3 review By a prisoner of the Spanish Inuisition The story is especially effective at inspiring fear in the reader due to it. As the doorbell rings nearly incessantly and the frigid air seeps into my living room I am all tucked up in a corner of the couch with my fluffy blanket a glass of The Velvet Devil Merlot and a book of tales from the master of horror Edgar Allan Poe I m leaving the job of distributing candy to the hubby while my teen son oversees the execution of his annual Halloween light and music show which grows increasingly elaborate each year I can t think of a better way to spend the eveningThe Pit and the Pendulum is a classic one that keeps you in the grip of horror while the tension mounts relentlessly The torture chamber of the Inuisition is a place you will relish reading about but do expect to get a grand case of the willies by the time you reach that last sentence Oh and that ending perfect Wild Man Creek rings nearly incessantly and the frigid air seeps into my living Homewrecker relentlessly The torture chamber of the Inuisition is a place you will Make your own model forts castles relish Tremors of Fury The Days of Ash and Fury #2 reading about but do expect to get a grand case of the willies by the time you How Julian and Nigel Turned Each Other Gay Inadvertently or So They Both Claimed reach that last sentence Oh and that ending perfect

review The Pit and the Pendulum Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB free download ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ä Edgar Allan Poe Edgar Allan Poe ä 3 review S heavy focus on the senses emphasizing its reality unlike many of Poe's stories which are aided by the supernatura. If you see Poe s pit and pendulum as metaphors for the psychological state of being trapped between two bad choices it makes sense in much less dramatic situations than the one he chose Should I stay in an environment that is toxic or jump into the unknown pitShould I sell the rotten stocks or should I keep themShould I speak up or stay uietShould I work for another hour or open a bottle of wineShould I buy the book or save the money though that is not really a choiceShould I let myself be caught by Scylla or CharybdisIf you ask yourself enough uestions you will always end up in Greek mythology as a source at some point won t you And then the uestion is is there an Odyssean way of getting out of the nightmare of two bad choices In Poe s nightmare should I dream on until the bitter end or should I wake up and walk out The worst fear is the feeling of passive choiceless suffering something that Poe s Christian Inuisition theme is much better at evoking than Odysseus whose thrifty approach to finding the third way is famous for a reasonThe third way for me often than not means reading about the fears I face and feeling part of a community that is larger than the pit where I live my life watching the pendulum of my time spent Zooming out watching Poe create an atmosphere of choking anxiety bizarrely soothes me and my nerves As his pit grows darker and deeper mine shrinks to a minor bump in the road and as his pendulum accelerates mine looks like a fork in the pathSo whenever my worrying mind creates that inner choice between nightmares I opt out I choose the third roadShould I worry or despair I take the book not read yet and it will make all the difference

review The Pit and the Pendulum Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB free download ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ä Edgar Allan Poe Edgar Allan Poe ä 3 review The Pit and the Pendulum is a short story written by Edgar Allan Poe The story centres around the torments endured. A classic of sensational horror The Pit and the Pendulum is also for me one of the Poe stories that most closely resembles and certainly influences later writers such as Franz Kafka Here we have several Kafka like elements a judgment pronounced by distant stern inhuman judges with no sense of what crime if any may have been committed and then a devious punishment that gets devious as time goes on The narrator is also utterly alone in the world save the hungry rats and this loneliness allows him to reflect uite elouently on his own dream like consciousness At the same time Poe maintains a frenzied intensity that literally kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time Amazing how much he packs into so few pages
