Ligeia by Edgar Allan Poe

Ligeia by Edgar Allan Poe

September 11, 2015 Whitney Review 0 Comments

Ligeia by Edgar Allan Poe is disjointed. It reads like the author was on a bad trip.  The novel is very descriptive but I found it a bit disconcerting. I also kept picturing Mr. Rochester’s crazy first wife in the attic.
