And the will therein lieth, which dieth not. Who knoweth the mysteries of the
will, with its vigor? For God is but a great will pervading all things by nature of
its intentness. Man doth not yield himself to the angels, nor unto death utterly,
save only through the weakness of his feeble will.

Children of horror, a heart beats in a rat covered tomb, bells ring out from an abandoned church, a black cat screams in the shadows, and a raven screeches, “Nevermore” as we return to the ghostly grave of Edgar Allan Poe.
Edgar Allan Poe, the master of the macabre, was a writer, editor, and literary critic. He’s best known for his poetry and short stories. Poe is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and of American literature, and he was one of the country’s earliest practitioners of the short story. It’s without question he was the inventor of the detective fiction genre and influential in the emerging genre of science fiction. It is noteworthy that Edgar Allan Poe was the first well-known American writer to earn a living through writing alone. Unfortunately, as with many aspiring writers, it resulted in a financially difficult life and career.
Poe and his works influenced literature around the world, as well as specialized fields such as cosmology and cryptography. He and his work appear throughout popular culture in literature, music, films, and television. A number of his homes are dedicated museums today. The Mystery Writers of America present an annual award known as the Edgar Award for distinguished work in the mystery genre.
Ligeia was written by Edgar Allan Poe in 1838. It’s the story of a man who loses his beloved Ligeia to illness, though she fights with her indominable will to the very end. The narrator marries a second wife, Lady Rowena, who is also stricken with a mysterious illness.
Will the narrator’s less than beloved Lady Rowena recover from her illness? Or will the narrator be reunited in Life…or Death by Ligeia?
