The Fall of the House of Usher By Edgar Allan Poe "The Fall of the House of Usher" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe. The story begins with the unnamed narrator arriving at the house of his friend, Roderick Usher, having received a letter from him in a distant part of the country complaining of an illness and asking for his help. Although Poe wrote this short story before the invention of modern psychological science, Roderick's condition can be described according to its terminology. It includes a form of sensory overload known as hyperesthesia (hypersensitivity to light, sounds, smells, and tastes), hypochondria (an excessive preoccupation or worry about having a serious illness), and acute anxiety. It is revealed that Roderick's twin sister, Madeline, is also ill and falls into cataleptic, deathlike trances. The narrator is impressed with Roderick's paintings, and attempts to cheer him by reading with him and listening to his improvised musical compositions on the guitar. Roderick sings "The Haunted Palace", then tells the narrator that he believes the house he lives in to be alive, and that this sentience arises from the arrangement of the masonry and vegetation surrounding it.… (més)

Oh come on, how is this not fun. Read on a dark night, one when the lights are out because there is a furious storm beating on your rooftop and windows, it would make you shudder indeed.

It is not my first reading, but it might be my most appreciative one. I reveled in the description, the careful choice of words, the building agitation of our narrator. I picked up on one tidbit I might have missed before. Very early on in the narrator's description of Roderick Usher (who doesn't love that name?), we are told his "family had been noted, time our of mind, for a peculiar sensibility of temperament, displaying itself, through long ages, in many works of exalted art..." As an artist who seriously teetered on the edge of madness himself, I wonder how completely Poe connected art and insanity; how much he feared that the very sensitive and artist personality might succumb to it.

Having just finished a historical (biographical) novel of Poe, [b:Mrs. Poe|16130398|Mrs. Poe|Lynn Cullen|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1420462099s/16130398.jpg|21955711], I had an itch to revisit some of his tales. I was tickled that this one was picked for a group read. Now, off to see what others are saying about it. ( )

There's not really a story here. There's a setup and an abrupt ending. Also, the location and the ending were based on real events (creepy) rather than something Poe came up with himself. He seemed more focused on building atmosphere and tension - which he definitely succeeds at - and maybe a little character exploration. It was pretty tedious for such a short read but I found his gothic fascination with the macabre charmingly campy, especially when expressed with self awareness and a sense of humor.

Update: I'm currently reading [b:Darkly: Black History and America's Gothic Soul|53001279|Darkly Black History and America's Gothic Soul|Leila Taylor|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1571296958l/53001279._SX50_SY75_.jpg|69982124] by Leila Taylor and she connects Poe's recurring ruminations on guilt with slavery. I found her exploration of that to be an eye-opening window into Poe's work and American history and culture at large. ( )

Poe's penchant for florid narrative and the fact that his works were written almost two centuries ago simply don't work for me. I find his style difficult and sometimes tedious.

However, the actual storyline is compelling and for that he deserves credit.

Worthwhile, but overrated. ( )

I'm struggling to give this one a rating. Not because it wasn't good, but because it's not my cup of tea. And I knew this before I started it, but it's on the 1001 list....

Poe is a master at what he does, and this book definately gives you chills.

Rating-wise, I would give this 1 star based on personal preference, but I'll add an extra one, out of appreciation of his writing-style and atmosphere-building. ( )
