爱伦坡 (Edgar Allan Poe) 生于1809119日。

在「泄秘的心脏」 (The Tell-Tale Heart) 一书里,一个男人承认犯了谋杀罪,并且把尸体藏在家里的地板下。但是,男人开始丧失理智,他听到受害者的心脏疯狂的跳着,而且心跳声越来越响亮。你也可以试着去看「黑猫」 (The Black Cat) 或者是「摩尔格街凶杀案」 (Murders in the Rue Morgue) 这两本小说。

除了恐怖小说与侦探推理小说之外,爱伦坡也有充满浪漫的作品,他那首让人不住萦绕在心的「安娜贝尔.李」 (
Annabel Lee) 一诗,就是一例。




In"The Tell-Tale Heart," a man commits a murder and hides the body under the floorboards in the house. But, he begins to go mad, hearing the wild beating of his victim's heart getting louder and louder. Try reading "The Black Cat," or "Murders in the Rue Morgue."

Poe also wrote romance, like his haunting poem "Annabel Lee:"
"For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee
And the stars never rise but I see the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee"

What do you know about the life of the man who wrote these strange tales?
