The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe

From the long rows of bottles which were lying on the floor, among the bones, I chose one which contained a very good wine.

Since I did not have anything to open the bottle with, I struck the stone wall with it and broke off the small end.

I offered the bottle to Fortunato. Drink some of this fine Medoc. It will help to keep us warm. I drink to the dead who lie sleeping around us.

A very fine wine, indeed! But the Amontillado? Deeper into the ground we went, past still more bones. There seems to be no end to them. It is not far now. But I can see you are trembling with the cold. Let us go back before it is too late. Let us go on. But first, another drink of your Medoc! Fortunato took it and drank it all without stopping for a breath. He laughed, and threw the empty bottle over his shoulder. We went on, deeper and deeper into the earth. Finally we arrived at a vault in which the air was so old and heavy that our lights almost died.

Against three of the walls there were piles of bones higher than our heads. From the fourth wall someone had pulled down all the bones, and they were spread all around us on the ground.

In the middle of the wall was an opening into another vault, if I can call it that — a little room about three feet wide, six or seven feet high, and perhaps four feet deep. It was hardly more than a hole in the wall. Soon, of course, he reached the back wall. He stood there a moment, facing the wall, surprised and wondering.

In that wall were two heavy iron rings. A short chain was hanging from one of these and a lock from the other. Before Fortunato could guess what was happening, I closed the lock and chained him tightly to the wall. I stepped back.

You must feel how the water runs over it. Once more I ask you, please, will you not go back? If not, then I must leave you.

But first I must do everything I can for you. Throwing them to one side I found the stones which earlier I had taken down from the wall. Quickly I began to build the wall again, covering the hole where Fortunato stood trembling. What are you doing!? I could hear him pulling at the chain, shak- ing it wildly. Only a few stones remained to put in their place. This is a very good joke, indeed.

Many times will we laugh about it — ha-ha — as we drink our wine together — ha-ha. As we drink the Amontillado. Should we not be going back?

They will be expecting us. For the love of God!! For the love of God! My heart grew sick; it must have been the cold. These famous Edgar Allen Poe Tales and Stories have been included along with some lesser known, but equally enjoyable tales.

Edgar Allan Poe died in Baltimore on October 7th of "congestion of the brain. Edgar Allen Poe - the Movies! Edgar Allen Poe is still acknowledged as being the godfather of modern day horror fiction.Undue brevity is just as exceptionable here as in the poem; but undue length is yet more to be avoided. Finally, Poe lived from sociology. The ranks of the word groups the word groups Death, Body, and Fear. It is clear, moreover, that this unity cannot be thoroughly preserved in productions whose perusal cannot be completed at one sitting.

A man of whims conceives the purpose of quitting his wife and residing incognito, for twenty years, in her immediate neighborhood. This has also been confirmed by Mrs. His prose is remarkably vigorous, direct and yet affluent; and his verse has a peculiar charm of melody, an atmosphere of true poetry about it, which is very winning.
