Edgar Allen Poe, master of the macabre, fascinates and frustrates in equal measure. As literary critic Harold Bloom notes, his writing can be of a “badness not to be believed,” but his stories nonetheless lodge in our unconsciousness, disturbing us with unforgettable images of death, abandonment and horror.
Dead by the age of forty, Poe’s life as an American writer in the mid-nineteenth century proves to be as tumultuous and haunting as his tales.
During the first three weeks of J-term students will create an original piece based on, and incorporating material from, the writings and life of Edgar Allen Poe. Working with text, image, object and movement, students invite you to join them in this experiment of imagining and performing the uncanny and unnerving world of Poe. Complimentary tickets for the St. Olaf Community. Off campus patrons pay $8.00. Tickets can be reserved at 786-8987.
