About this deal

One of these drawings was a scene of Oriental luxury, or rather voluptuousness; another was a "carnival piece," spirited beyond compare; the third was a Greek female head - a face so divinely beautiful, and yet of an expression so provokingly indeterminate, never before arrested my attention.

On the floor was an ingrain carpet, of excellent texture - a white ground, spotted with small circular green figures. The little vale into which I thus peered down from under the fog canopy could not have been more than four hundred yards long; while in breadth it varied from fifty to one hundred and fifty or perhaps two hundred.

The road, after passing the gate, seemed to lie upon a natural ledge, sloping gradually down along the face of the north-eastern cliffs. At the turn, the stream, sweeping backward, made an almost circular loop, so as to form a peninsula which was very nearly an island, and which included about the sixteenth of an acre.He is seen as a morbid, mysterious figure lurking in the shadows of moonlit cemeteries or crumbling castles. He was civil, even cordial in his manner, but just then, I was more intent on observing the arrangements of the dwelling which had so much interested me, than the personal appearance of the tenant. The door itself had its upper half of glass, also in lozenge panes—a movable shutter secured it at night.

A light birch canoe that lay placidly on the water, was reflected in its minutest fibres with a fidelity unsurpassed by the most exquisitely polished mirror. He presumably walked from Fordham — in Westchester County in his day — through Putnam County on its north and into Dutchess County, where Poughkeepsie is situated. I think it is fitting that he wrote about a beautiful scene rather than something horrific as his final work. Author, poet, and literary critic, Edgar Allan Poe is credited with pioneering the short story genre, inventing detective fiction, and contributing to the development of science fiction.Here a precipitous ledge of granite arose to a height of some ninety feet; and, as I have mentioned, the valley at this point was not more than fifty feet wide; but as the visiter proceeded southwardly from the cliff, he found on his right hand and on his left, declivities at once less high, less precipitous, and less rocky. Totalmente innecesaria su presencia y compañía, ya que apenas se menciona dos veces a este perro, pero para nada. Here, after encircling the tree, it passed on a little to the north of east, leaving the tulip tree some twenty feet to the south, and making no decided alteration in its course until it came near the midway between the eastern and western boundaries of the valley. The roofs of the two larger were very steep - sweeping down from the ridge-beam with a long concave curve, and extending at least four feet beyond the walls in front, so as to form the roofs of two piazzas.

The first version of the cover for The System of Landor’s Cottage, which Graham made in 1986, was significantly different from this version. The door to the west wing was in its gable, and quite simple—a single window looked out to the south.

Asimismo, el terranova de El escarabajo de oro tenía más participación que el sabueso de la presente. The more substantial furniture consisted of a round table, a few chairs (including a large rocking-chair), and a sofa, or rather "settee;" its material was plain maple painted a creamy white, slightly inter-striped with green; the seat of cane. Y esto no es una exageración mía como quizás podría ser la primera parte de Ligeia, reseña en donde indiqué que se abusaban de las descripciones; acá es infinitamente superior y más grotesco y obsceno que en aquel relato.

Instantly a figure advanced to the threshold - that of a young woman about twenty-eight years of age - slender, or rather slight, and somewhat above the medium height. Perhaps there is no real story here, but it highlights Poe's brilliant use of descriptive words that paint a beautiful picturesque scene. His other brother William Henry Leonard Poe would also become a poet before his early death, and Poe’s sister Rosalie Poe would grow up to teach penmanship at a Richmond girls’ school.

At the west end of the parlor, were a fireplace, and a door leading into the west wing - probably a kitchen. Friends of Poe such as Mary Gove have written that the cottage Poe describes is actually an idealized version of his Fordham [NY] cottage, his 'little cottage on top of a hill. The first coup d'oeil, as the sun slid into the position described, impressed me very much as I have been impressed, when a boy, by the concluding scene of some well–arranged theatrical spectacle or melodrama.
