This tale begins with an identified narrator whose story is the loose outer frame for the central tale of Augustus Bedloe, a wealthy young invalid whom the narrator has known “casually” for eighteen years yet who still remains an enigma.
First thing first and that’s why I need to say that I’m giving short story extra points for being mysterious and overall an original story.
The writing style here again was not good enough for Edgar Allan Poe. Edgar Allan Poe was fully able to write better than he did in this one.
The plot was kind of okay, but the potential of this story wasn’t fully used. Of course it was interesting enough to read it. But I wouldn’t reread it.
The old English really comes to place in this one. And I needed to pull up my dictionary a lots.
And to be honest here I was confused while reading it and after I’ve read it I was still confused.
Overall its a little weird short story.
I give this poem 1 / 5
