My freshman English class will discuss this story tomorrow. I am so excited, because I just love it! This one is my favorite Poe story, and I will use it to bring my Gothic Literature unit to a close. I am sorry to be finishing this unit, but my next book is To Kill a Mockingbird, so I am definitely looking forward to that.

Jobe I taught freshman English here in Texas for 17 years. Taught this story, and Mockingbird. TKAM on lesson plans. Ha 13mo
JaclynW Nice choices! 13mo
Joy0201 I teach seniors. The lower grades get all the Poe. 13mo

Melwilk @Jobe That‘s what I put in my plans too! 13mo
Melwilk @JaclynW Thanks! 13mo
Melwilk @Joy0201 We have certain stories for each grade level in my district. That way everyone gets in on the fun. 13mo
Joy0201 @Melwilk our school has that. The district I used to be in did it for the entire district. I have had to scrap and fight for every short story the 12th grade does get. The ones in our text aren‘t great. We could probably do something like Masque of the Red Death but we just never have. It might be a holdover from 12th being British lit for so many years. 13mo
rustoryhuf My favorite Poe! 13mo

Chilling tale of #revenge! Fortunato, tricked by the ruse of tasting the most amazing wine, follows Montressor into his wine cellar where Montressor plays out his act of revenge for unspecified insults. Certainly Fortunato, who has no clue of what is to come, fits #dontwannafight!

Cinfhen Love this graphic 2y
kspenmoll @Cinfhen Found it on the internet & love it- the anthology this story is in is at school. Such a heavy tome, I leave it there! @Robothugs (edited) 2y

A Gothic short story written in 1846, by Edgar Allan Poe. Perhaps one of my favorite of all Poe's works, this literary genius stimulates one of everyone's deepest and scariest fears: to be buried alive.
