Publisher's Summary

“I was sick, sick unto death with that long agony,” begins one of the most famous tales from the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe. Through the tortures of the Spanish Inquisition, we follow the straying mind of the unnamed prisoner in his quest for hope in a world of darkness and despair. This episode skyrocketed The Classic Tales Podcast to number 3 on iTunes’ Top 100 Podcasts chart.

Classic

A classic from Poe, not my favorite as there was no connection to the character beyond his ability to think rationally and the tone of his fear. The Who, What and Why were not covered enough for me to care, however, still creepy.

Great performance. Scary story.

Such a vivid story. Very scary. Wonderfully performed. At first, I tried to read the story but found it difficult to follow and concentrate because it is such a dark subject. I decided to try to listen instead and I am very pleased I did so. It was much easier for me to follow because the imagery is very strong. The performance was the perfect tempo and gave the story such depth.
