“Why the Little Frenchman Wears His Hand in a Sling” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

“Why the Little Frenchman Wears His Hand in a Sling” is a humorous short story written by Edgar Allan Poe 

You need to know that there are some Edgar Allan Poe stories and poems i really don’t care about, and this one is one of these stories i dont care about.

This story is supposed to be a humorous love story of sorts but it wasn’t that humorous as you might think.

This story is also kind of hard to read because of the language which Edgar Allan Poe uses. The language which Edgar Allan Poe uses is a Scottish brough.

To be honest this story shows that Edgar Allan Poe is able to write a “bit of the blarney” that was in his ancestral Irish blood. 

This one was written in a thick simulated Irish brogue which are  depicting the thoughts of Sir Pathrick O’Grandison concerning the circumstances why the little Frenchman Count A.

But also in this one Edgar Allan Poe is trying to sort of “write with an accent” which makes this story to something bad.

I give this poem 1 / 5
