Edgar Allan Poe Inspiration?

Postby Grego » Wed Jul 10, 2013 12:46 am

Hello!! :D I am a huge fan of Edgar Allan Poe, read the books since I was a child and watched many movies (The Crow) and series (The Following) related to him.

I could notice, at least in this first part that there are many things related to their storys, first of all the crows I think they are always mentioned in his stories and poems. also there is a story about ("The Raven").

Other thing I noticed, was the "black cat without his eyes" a famous story ("The Black Cat") where the owner of the cat was sick and he took the eyes from his cat and then hanged it.

Also the fresh wall where in ("The Cask Of Amontillado"), a man puts another man in a hole in the wall and then make a "brick wall" and let him dye of immurement (dye starving).

Inside the wall there was a box or a chest, where inside was a red mask, ("The Masque of the Red Death").

Those were the similarities I found, and if i look at the game deeper I know there will be more, just my oppinion.

What do you people think about? ;)

As soon as I started playing the game, I thought it was particularly Poe-eqsue! I haven't gotten far into it, but just the atmosphere strikes me as such.

Yes, that was quite clear for me from the start. I knew there will be a black cat in that freshly cemented wall at the moment I saw it. :)

There is hardly a person who would not know of or heard of Edgar Allan Poe. He was a master of horror in literature. In case you have not read his writings as of yet, it is about time to do so. If you were assigned to write an essay upon him and you cannot do that due to some reasons, lack of time, knowledge, writing skills and/or imagination - feel free to apply for help online. http://findwritingservice.com/blog/find-new-facts-with-edgar-allan-poe-essay is a sample of work you are to view before applying for help just so you knew what to expect once your paper is ready.
