First published in a 1842 literary annual The Gift: A Christmas and New Year’s Present for 1843, The Pit and the Pendulum takes place during the Spanish Inquisition and follows the plight of a prisoner in a cell that has a pit and a pendulum. Unlike many of Poe’s short stories, The Pit and the Pendulum does not rely on any supernatural elements to inspire fear but instead uses the narrator’s heightened sensory experiences to do so.

About the Author

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.
