Projects

the-poe-project

In which I read all of Edgar Allan Poe’s short stories, novels and poems. He has one finished novel, around 68 tales and 97 poems (though I’ll only read about 48 of them, because those are the ones in the book of ‘complete’ poems I have). I’ll list all his stuff here and cross them off as I go. I won’t list the poems, but I’m committed to reading them all the same. I’ll be reading two or three stories per month, depending on how much time I have. I’ll post my thoughts on Poe on the last Fridays of each month. Hopefully.

The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket (1837)

    • Me too! That’s why I started this project: so I could force myself to read his stuff instead of just wishing to. Because I never got around to it :)
