The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe

I used to read this with my oldest daughter every year at Halloween from when she was about 13. Last year I began this tradition with my younger daughter when she turned about that age.

The first time I heard this was when I was in 5th grade at school. I guess I was about 11 or 12. It was the first time I had ever heard of Edgar Allen Poe.

One funny thing was the the English teacher was names Mr, Edgar. I think I must have wondered if they were related…LOL

Anyway I remember that a lot of the people in class were bored and did not really understand the point of this kind of poetry. But I was mesmerized and fascinated. I went up to the teacher after class and asked questions about this dark poet.

Edgar Allan Poe is still one of my favorite writers.

    By far, one of the most terrifying things to read! I love it. 😛
