“A Tale of Jerusalem” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

This is a strange and wildly ahistorical tale. It speaks of three Jewish temple workers, one identified as a priest, who are upon a battlement looking over the army of Pompey surrounding the city. They have made deal with Pompey to purchase a temple sacrifice.

So this one was a tale which was of negligible value, but still amusing and pretty enjoyable. However it wasn’t so good as many other work written by Edgar Allan Poe.

The whole storyline in this short story was pretty weak and it almost seemed like it was very much like it was frivolously put together. What I’m trying to say is that it lacks depth and the characters are bland.

This short story was filled with vivid historical atmosphere but also with mercifully brief.

This short story involves sort of a trick played upon the besieged Jews by the besieging Romans.

To be honest this tale was not at all what I had expected from a short story written by Edgar Allan Poe. 

I give this poem 1 / 5
