“A Tale of the Ragged Mountains,” published in 1844, is a short story written by Edgar Allan Poe partially based on his experiences while a student at the University of Virginia. Set near Charlottesville, it is the only one of Poe’s stories to take place in Virginia. “A Tale of the Ragged Mountains” highlights scientific theories of Poe’s day, engages with British imperial history and forecasts contemporary interest in psychoactive drugs, the transmigration of the soul and the dynamics of the doctor-patient relationship.

    " To me what was great about this story is you really have no idea what happened. Is this the rambling of a drug user? Time travel? Or just a coincidence? "

    " Ahh... another Poe short story classic, full of fear, suspense, and god damned confusion. What really happens borders the mysterious. How can you explain a supposedly ordinary man, reliving another's extraordinary experience... "

    " This was an interesting story about reincarnation or something. I was a little confused to be honest. "

About the Author
Author Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1848) transformed the American literary landscape with his innovations in the short story genre and his haunting lyrical poetry, and he is credited with inventing American gothic horror and detective fiction. He was first published in 1827 and then began a career as a magazine writer and editor and a sharp literary critic. In 1845 the publication of his most famous poem, “The Raven,” brought him national fame.
