Poe, Times Two
by Greg Oliver Bodine
The Cask of Amontillado
A Venetian nobleman narrates a chilling tale of revenge involving his friend, Fortunato, against whom he has carried a grudge for an offense that is never fully explained …an altogether sinister tale of one man’s thirst for vengeance, born from arrogance and jealousy.
The Black Cat
A condemned man speaks from his prison cell on the night before he is to be executed for the brutal murder of his wife — Poe’s masterful study of domestic violence, guilt and one man’s descent into madness …a journey that illustrates the ability of the human mind to observe and comment on its own destruction without being able to stop it.
