The story follows a man of “a noble descent” who calls himself William Wilson because, although denouncing his profligate past, he does not accept full blame for his actions, saying that “man was never thus … tempted before”.
The ending of this story was just brilliant. And i’m sure that a lots of you will enjoy it for sure just as much as I did.
The whole plot of this story is also pretty amazing, but less amazing than the ending itself.
By reading this one you will also get some good insight into the psychology of that young man and his motifs which as a whole is an incredibly good psychological study.
This one is definitely one of the best Edgar Allan Poe stories. And if you are calling yourself an Edgar Allan Poe fan and you haven’t read it yet then you must do it.
I would say that this short story is a typical Edgar Allan Poe story. Because it is chilling, have a super gothic vibe to it and its hard to stop reading it when you begin.
Need to say that this one is a very enjoyable read and also pretty fun and quick read as well.
The writing style in this one is as you can expect from Edgar Allan Poe which of course means that it is amazing and super moody.
I give this poem 3 / 5
