This one is about being buried alive, which was a common fear in this period. It is also about natural fears of people, and how other individuals’ experiences can taint how we live our own lives.
To be honest it doesn’t get more Edgar Allan Poe than this short story. And I need to give this short story points for giving my huge Edgar Allan Poe vibes.
The writing style in this short story was amazing, it truly shows how create of a writer Edgar Allan Poe was. The gothic writing style comes very forward in this one which I truly loved.
The whole plot is amazing, because the idea if being buried alive always scared me and I sometimes thought about it. However there were some plot holes in it, but the plot holes aren’t big enough to ruin the story for most of you.
This one isn’t scary but it is definitely very creepy because I think that everyone is afraid of being buried alive and have thought about it at some point in their life.
If you are like me, this short story when you finish it, will leave you with a feeling of unease.
I give this short story 3 / 5
