“Berenice” By Edgar Allan Poe Review

The tale is centered on the death of a young girl, named Berenice, and the mysterious visions of her cousin, Egaeus.

So it’s another story where the narrator becomes obsessed with his cousin Berenice’s teeth. Which is a unique take on a stalker story.

It wasn’t scary but there were moments where I was close to having chillis running down my back.

The writing style is pretty amazing. There is a huge gothic and dark vibe to it. Which I love but there is also a Halloween story vibe to it which I also love. 

This story also have an amazing display of symbolism, which I also Im a fan of. 

But the story as a whole wasn’t that good, but the small details in it was actually pretty good.

I give this poem 1 / 5
