It seems like reading Edgar Allan Poe stories around Halloween is a rite of passage for students in English classes. He wrote poems such as "The Raven" and "Annabel Lee" and stories like "The Tell-Tale Heart", "The Black Cat", "The Fall of the House of Usher", "The Cask of Amontillado", "The Masque of the Red Death", "The Pit and the Pendulum", etc.
If you have read Poe stories before, which ones have you read and what do you remember of them? Did you like them? How scary/creepy were they? Share your memories of you or teachers reading the works of Edgar Allan Poe.
If you have not read Poe or don't remember, describe to me what you expect from a classic horror writer? What kinds of stories do you think we'll be reading? Have you ever read scary stories?

Well i have never read any poe stories or never plan on reading them, but if i ever have a chance to read them i would expect it to be scary lots of mystery deaths and it would be pretty fun to read. i think we will be reading poems or a scary book just because it is close to halloween. And yes i have read scary stories before but i wouldn't really rate them scary they were more intermediate than they were scary but for the most part i guess i enjoyed them.
