Edgar Allan Poe’s combination of stories about the freaks of a mad ancient monarch and the caricatures of a nineteenth-century king of France is a happy one; the result is one of the best of the tales of the grotesque. The cardinal idea is the baseness of the ancient mob — shared by its modern counterpart.
It’s another short story from Edgar Allan Poe which you can read in 15 minutes or so.
This one was very strange and very hard to review or describe without mentioning any spoilers.
This one was for sure very unique. But to be fair every Edgar Allan Poe is sort of unique in a way or another.
For the most part this story was boring for almost the entire story. But it this might be because it was way too short and it would be better if we got more story into it and not just the brief view of the story.
