“Diddling, Considered as One of the Exact Sciences” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

The short entry is an essay on “diddling,” a word which has gone out of style. Yet it seems to us that it would still serve a very useful purpose today.

This short story is sort of a mix between horror and humor. 

This short story gives as a pretty decent story about grifters. 

The writing style was pretty poor, it was so poor that it almost didn’t look likt Edgar Allan Poe have written it. 

This story was not a mystery, not a horror story, and not a poem but still it is worth to read it if you are a Edgar Allan Poe fan like me. 

It was an  entertaining read, but it could have been much better than it actually was. 

This story sort of seems more like an essay than a short story. But it also have sort of a  collection of factious diddlings vibe to it. 

This one seems like more a collection of various scams that were circulating at that time.

I give this poem 2 / 5
