“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” ― Edgar Allan Poe
According to Wikipedia, Poe, born on January 19, 1809, “was one of the country’s earliest practitioners of the short story, and considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre, as well as a significant contributor to the emerging genre of science fiction.”
I knew there was a reason I liked him. The Fall of the House of Usher, The Tell-Tale Heart, and the poem Eldorado rank among my all-time favorite works. Perhaps I should try dreaming up a plotline and writing a short story or two, emulating Poe’s aesthetic. Hmm, yes, that is getting added to my ideas list.
