goths looking to be interviewed or could explain their views/feelings for Edgar's writings : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

If anyone living the "gothic life-style" could by chance tell me of their views on Edgar Allen, why they read his stories/poems etc., before the 19th of April, that would be truly helpful. If you wouldn't mind being interviewed some questions, then contact me at my e-mail address. Thanks a bunch!

Edgar Allen was a very interesting man. He had a way with words but unfortunatly he needed the help of certain drugs to help him along a bit and i must admit that i'm disapointed bacuse of that particular fact. But that in no way diminishes his obvious talent and the fact that he wasn't afraid to do his own thing. Many people belive him to be "twisted" or "bizzar" and i'm inclined to belive with them (who wouldn't agree? I mean, come on, read his work and its sorta hard not to)but that just adds to the charm of his writing. His poems force you to actually think about what you're reading not just go through it and write a few "This is about" for an English class withought really paying attention. Personaly i prefer Edgar to many other poets and find his work to be very captavating.

personally i like poes writing especially the "pit and the pendallum" it represents a way to manipulate fear and drunkenness to a different purpose and i find that amusing.
