Edgar Allan Poe, Illustrated | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

Literature and the visual arts have fed off of each other for as long as the two have existed. It should be no surprise to anyone reading this that the evocative imagery of the works of Edgar Allan Poe have been complemented with illustrations numerous times in their publication history.

Hugo Gonzalez's curator insight, March 20, 2014 1:11 PM

When it comes to writing, reading old literature from these deceases writer really helps.  It may be old but it can teach a writer a thing or two about making a paper more fascinating.  It can create a imagery if the words are visual instead of just spoken.

Weird Voyages and Strange Seas | Christopher Burke

Weird Voyages and Strange Seas | Christopher Burke | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

Today marks the beginning of a week of weird voyages and strange seas here at WFR. The trope in which a plot pulls its characters to exotic locales has a long and rich history, both within Weird fiction and more mainstream traditions. It seems most often to be used for the purpose of displacing the characters and reader from the familiar, leaving open possibilities not previously available in order to reveal stranger (and often darker) truths. Joseph Conrad understood the potentially alienating power of place and used it with compelling effect in Heart of Darkness, and many Weird authors have used it in similar fashion, such as Lucius Shepard in his exotic tale Kalimantan, which appears to specifically invoke the classic Conrad piece.
