Overview: The title says it all.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “If you love horror, read the poems and stories that started the genre.  Truly frightening, even now.”

Ethan: “I used to think of Poe’s works as simply dark and depressing. However, when I actually started to read his work I realized that he not only wrote some moving lines of poetry but also a wide range of fiction including detective works, science fiction, and stories full of cyphers and codes for the reader to crack.”

Rebecca:  “Murders, madmen, mystery, intrigue, and in only a few pages! Poe changed the game of literature. He brings to life a wildly dark side of the human imagination.”
