His longer works such as The Pit and the Pendulum or The Tell-Tale Heart share this quality. So Poe's works are a natural for listening to as well as reading.
Happily, a terrific collection of Poe classics is available on a 2 CD set from Symphony Space, a New York City performing arts center "that fosters artistically and culturally diverse performing arts, literary, and film programs that bring artists and audiences together in an atmosphere of exploration and intimacy. "
The stories are classics and the readings are creepy and full of suspense just as they should be. The performances are in front of a live audience but outside of the initial and ending applause, there is little intrusion from the audience into the reading.
I like that the works have different performers. It gives a nice break to the selections and keeps it interesting.
Some of the individual works have more than one reader. Even the short (1:57) poem Annabel Lee has 3 different performers and the different voices add to the reading. Wait till you hear what the 4 different voices bring to The Bells.
Poe! is perfect to put you in the mood for Halloween or to send a shiver up your spine any time of year.
