Blut wird fließen
Er hört die Jungen bereits aus der Ferne. Wie sie hinunterkommen zum Fluss, wo er angelt. Und den Frieden stören. Und er riecht das Waffenöl, zu viel Öl für eine neue Schrotflinte. Es sind reiche youngsters, die nichts übrig haben für den Fluss, die Fische und den alten Mann. Und sie begehen einen großen Fehler – sie erschießen den treuen Hund des alten Mannes.

«Non c’è racconto degno di questo nome se dalla prima parola non suscita l’interesse del lettore che deve giungere all’ultima riga in keeping with comprendere l. a. soluzione finale», scriveva Baudelaire. Tutte le opere di Poe presenti in questa raccolta possiedono una simile caratteristica. Sono un labirinto, una pianta carnivora che non lascia più l. a. preda; il lettore che, anche solo in keeping with caso, si lasci attirare dalla prima parola, non può più tirarsi indietro ed è costretto a proseguire. In questo quantity è raccolta l. a. migliore produzione di Poe, da Ligeia a l. a. mascherata della Morte Rossa, da I delitti della through Morgue a Lo scarabeo d’oro. Nei suoi racconti l’analisi e il ragionamento si fondono con l’immaginazione visionaria, creando capolavori indimenticabili nei quali il macabro s’allea col delitto, l’incubo con los angeles follia, l’amore con l. a. morte.
«Una notte, mentre giacevo in una taverna più che malfamata, mezzo intontito, los angeles mia attenzione fu attratta all’improvviso da qualcosa di nero che riposava sulla sommità di una delle enormi botti di gin e di rum, che costituivano l’arredamento principale del locale.»
