Writers LIVE: Gareth Hinds: Poe: Stories and Poems

Enoch Pratt Free Library

In stories and poems written well over a century ago, Edgar Allan Poe established himself as the original American master of gothic horror. Now, artist-adapter Gareth Hinds has translated Poe's dark genius into a graphic-novel for Poe fans new and old.

 

Blood, bones, and flickering firelight set the mood for Hinds's vision of Poe's macabre and tragic worlds. In "The Cask of Amontillado," a man takes a terrifying revenge on a friend who has insulted him. In "The Masque of the Red Death," a prince hosts a party in his abbey stronghold while plague spreads outside. A prisoner finds himself in the sadistic clutches of the Spanish inquisition in "The Pit and the Pendulum," and in "The Tell-Tale Heart," a single milky eye incites madness and murder.

Alongside the tales are visual interpretations of three iconic poems -- "The Raven," "The Bells," and Poe's poignant elegy to lost love, "Annabel Lee." Taken together, these seven concise graphic narratives honor a timeless legacy.

Gareth Hinds is the creator of the graphic novels Macbeth, The Odyssey, Beowulf, Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, and King Lear.
