Thinking Aloud
Poe, "The House of Usher," and the American Gothic
On this day before Halloween, we'll take a look at horror and the American gothic. Edgar Allan Poe's, "The House of Usher" continues to cast a very long shadow, at least figuratively, over these genres of writing. Within its shadow fall a number of literary successors to the Poe legacy. We'll walk right into that shadow on today's Thinking Aloud.—Original airdate: 10/30/2009
