Artist's Description

Image based on a narrative paper cut representing a short story by Edgar Allan Poe.

I selected stories with southern settings like Charleston and Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, and the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia. Some of these stories contain references to Poe’s troubled young adulthood. All of them employ elements of the uncanny (rather than the horrific), while reflecting the topics that most fascinated Poe: spiritualism, medical science, cryptography, and urban crime.
