Poe's "hypnotic magic of the senses"

| No Comments


Academic Source

In Walter Shear's "Poe's Fiction: The Hypnotic Magic of the Senses" he states his opinion that "Edgar Allan Poe's fiction is that of the individual mind, orchestrated and ordered by the life of the senses." Poe's deliberate use of sensory experience to add texture to stories is, in fact, proven well in "The Black Cat."
