The Cask

I had a sort of impish look on my face while I flipped through the pages of the Rue Morgue "Poe" issue during my cardio rehab today. It's a great issue, with a few really nice articles about the history of the man and his work, including the myths of what the real EAP was like. Reading this convinced me that I should re-experience and re-read the bulk of his work, as it has been over ten years since I've actually read his writing.

Furthermore, there is a brief, but nice moment where Roger Corman talks about sitting down with Vincent Price to discuss the work of Poe and how best to interpret his "spirit and themes".

Oh, to be a fly on the wall.
