It's hard to celebrate the Halloween season without giving a nod to Edgar Allan Poe. Poe's creepy and chilling stories are standards for many genres--detective, horror and mystery. His works are firmly sealed in America's literary canon.
Each autumn, the Frazier History Museum brings a handful of Poe's pieces to life. The museum's Historic Interpretations Department chose six poems and two short stories, penned by Poe, to stage this year. Which thrillers did they pick? Below is the list.
- The Raven
- The Murders in the Rue Morgue
- Spirits of the Dead
- The City in the Sea
- The Bells
- The Masque of the Red Death
- Dream Within a Dream
