Hallowe’en Poetry


Happy Hallowe’en everyone!

Hurricane Sandy almost ruined Hallowe’en in Toronto, but so far, it looks like Hallowe’en is happening and princesses, firefighters, witches and monsters will be out in search of candy later tonight.

We still have to get a few things ready for our special visitors, but in the meantime wanted to send you a link to Edgar Allan Poe’s Short story The Black Cat.  It’s scary, disturbing and suspenseful–perfect for Hallowe’en.  If you like that, and want to read another one that happens to be set on Carnival, then read The Cask of Amontillado.  It takes revenge to a whole new level.

Did you guys know that Poe is credited with perfecting the short story?  Enjoy!
