Poe's eerie story of a strange doppelganger, with a classic twist at the end. William Wilson, from his early schooldays, is dogged and taunted by another boy of similar height and appearance, who bears the same name as himself. Although as young boys they manage to tolerate each other, over time, as Wilson moves through Eton and Oxford and out into the world, his alter ego frequently turns up to thwart him at critical moments in his life.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 7/2/2012

    " I thought this story was incredibly interesting. Perhaps the theme is, "We are our own worst enemy." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly | 8/2/2011

    " Not my favorite Poe ever, but I'm not much of an academic, so... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 10/7/2010

    " Enjoyed it. His vocabulary always amazes me. If you do away with all your good, are you beyond hope? Gives reason to ponder. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ging | 8/8/2010

    " Difficult to read and grasp due to its lengthy and complex sentences as well as its big words but it was worth the effort. Feel like I need to re-watch Fight Club and Black Swan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 6/28/2010

    " A Poe tale about a lookalike/doppelganger, better this his average story, although not as good as the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taysha Charlton | 2/25/2010

    " Okay, this...blew me away. I absolutely loved this. The final words gave me chills. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 11/18/2009

    " It was great, just like Poe. The reason I read it was the last line in the book! It was very interesting to hear the other side of the duelist argument. You can always count on Poe! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 10/18/2009

    " Ready my review on Poe's complete stoires. However, these were some of his best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emy | 7/11/2008

    " Always a good option in case you're planning to brick up your enemies behind a wall. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 7/9/2008

    " I couldn't find the exact copy of the book that I have, but this one was close. If you like frightening tales, Poe is classic, of course. Creepy but classic! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elise | 2/27/2008

    " That Edgar...he's one creepy dude. Talented, though. "

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.
