4 x 4 Friday--Poe--The Telltale Heart

Ah, just wouldn't be Halloween without a few words from the grand master of the horror tale. I just love Poe's stories; so full of histrionics, death, guilt, retribution and vengeance. Who could ask for more on a dark and stormy night.

The Telltale Heart is one of my favorites. You can almost hear the heart beating louder and louder as the tale progresses. And do you remember Bill Cosby's bit about the Chicken Heart...

Thanks to Landofnod Studio for the background texture, to which I added a red and black gradient layer. The images I found on the Edgar Allen Poe Museum website, and the hearts are PS brushes.

da-dum...da DUM...DA DUM!!!!


  1. aaah, i hear the heart beat;) fantastic square, linda!

  2. I wrote an essay on this poem about 20 years ago and recieved an A+ for getting to the deapths of the poet's psychotic feels so good to relive the past...
