My favorite creative work is almost anything by Edgar Allen Poe. He is probably the weirdest writer I have ever heard of. He has a way with twisting things and making you think one thing and coming out of left field. I think one specific piece I always enjoyed “Tell-Tale Heart”. He is very descriptive when it comes down to the consciousness of the main character as they start to hear the heartbeat of someone they killed through the floor boards. We as the readers know that if you killed someone they do not have a heartbeat because they are of course dead and as the poem goes on and the character is confronted by the police he almost get away with it but he cant bare the beating of the heart he thinks he hears and begs them to take him away because he just cant take it anymore, it was literally driving him more mad then he already was. This poem was published years ago in 1843. Although it was years ago the way Edgar explains things in his stories that no one ever had back then. Even today his works is admired and read often. His dark and sinister ways at times caught people off guard.
