READING: “The Tell-Tale Heart,” one of Edgar Allan Poe’s most famous short stories, has inspired artists, filmmakers, and writers since its first publication in 1843. But it was two murders a decade apart that helped inspire Poe to write his macabre masterwork of psychological fiction. Andrew K. F. Amelinckx brings to life these two lurid tales and the details of how they influenced one of the greatest psychological horror stories ever written.
