You appeared
Out of nowhere
Unwanted, unclaimed, unnamed
Disturbing the lifestyles strength flowing via my veins
Intoxicating my cells and using me insane

You materialized
Out of nowhere
Although you haven't any claim

And with wish I gaze towards the morning¡¦s sun

Download Edgar Allan Poe: o Mago do Terror – Romance Biográfico by Jeanette Rozsas PDF

By Jeanette Rozsas

Quem lê contos como "O coração delator" ou "O gato preto..." pode ser tomado pela sensação de que não há, na história em si, pontos fixos. De fato, poucos indicarão provas de que o personagem crucial, aquele que nos conta a (sua) história, ou esteja nos apresentando um delírio, que confundiu com uma experiência sobrenatural, ou tenha sofrido, mesmo, uma experiência tão assombrosa, tão apavorante, que transtornou de vez seu juízo.

Essa incerteza é pura magia – magia literária –; coisa de mago, de fato. E é também o mais puro Edgar Allan Poe.

Inovador das histórias de terror, mestre e fonte imperative do gótico romântico americano – e um dos principais autores do gênero na literatura mundial –, ele nos deixou contos poderosos e que influenciaram muitos outros escritores contemporâneos, como, aliás, é mencionado neste livro.
