The use of Horror... : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Hi. I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I have a paper to do on EGP and I needed some help. Could anyone tell me if there was any signifigance of the use of horror in some of his stories and why. And also some sites that could help me out with a paper of this nature. A quick response would be deeply appreciated. Thanks

Poe used a type of writings in his stories. He used Grotesque tales. Groteque tales are stories that take one character and heighten the attended effect. This makes the story more interesting.

the use of horror creates the suspence that brings one to the brink of realization of the fine line between life and death. that creates a bit of interest.
