 Literature meme: 1/? leitmotives: The death (and occasionally the ressurection) of the beloved woman (Edgar Allan Poe)

Featured in the poem “Annabel Lee” and such short stories as “Berenice”, “Ligeia”, “Morella”, “Eleonora”, “The Fall of House Usher”.

Edgar Allan Poe’s women’s tales featured deceased female protagonists, whose presence was evocated by devoted and mournful widowers. Poe’s heroines arise as men’s construct of the poetics of eternal beauty, while male horrified narrators gradually discover their late wives’ ethereal appearance betrays a decidedly, and repulsive, strong will. 

 They represent romanticised women and act as emotional catalysts for their male partners. The concept of using females merely as a means to a male end appears in “The Philosophy of Composition”, where Poe unveils his philosophy of beauty. The value of what is viewed lies solely in the response induced in the observer. Thus, the woman must die in order to enlarge the experience of the narrator, her viewer. As widely known, Poe asserted that the death of a beautiful woman is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world. While subjects of his creations, they are also objects of his thoughts.

 Even though Poe’s women apparently look delicate and frail, heroines such as Morella, Ligeia, Madeline or even Berenice manage to trespass the limits of life and death through their wilfulness and determination to persist in time, resembling female vampire fi gures, while their self-will is often demonised by mystified male narrators. 

The horror that Poe’s stories dramatize is the impossibility of dying. Either the dead literally come back to life or their undying death is given form in the event of premature burial.Despite acting as their creator, the narrator is always dependent on his female creations. 

Critics have used biographical and psychological arguments to explain Poe’s concept of women. Poe lost an unusual number of beautiful, relatively young females in his lifetime: his mother, Eliza Poe; his foster mother, Fanny Allan; the mother of one of his friends, Jane Stanard; her aunt, Mrs Clemm, and his own wife, Virginia Clemm. Critics argue if art was for him a form of mourning, a revisitation of his past and of what he had lost again and again.

pixylate asked:

Which of your OCs are heavy sleepers, and which ones are light sleepers? Also who would be the ones most likely to wake up in the middle of the night to get a snack? (oh and what kind of snack? :3c)

LET’S SEE my most notorious heavy sleepers are Reuben and Allan but to fill out a top five I’d also have Ruchi, Heinrich, and Cera

Lightest sleepers are Terry, Tabbie, Cotton, Felicia, and Colton (none of these are in order btw)

Anyone who’s a big eater and/or a late-nighter would be a likely snacker- which means Allan for sure, but I think the #1 is Lonnie who regularly stumbles into the kitchen in the middle of the night for ice cream snacking (which I’ve actually drawn)

senelerce senelerce evveldi;
bir deniz ülkesinde
yaşayan bir kız vardı, bileceksiniz
ismi annabel lee;
hiç bir şey düşünmezdi sevilmekten
sevmekten başka beni.

o çocuk ben çocuk memleketimiz
o deniz ülkesiydi,
***sevdalı değil “kara sevdalıydık.." ***
ben ve annabel lee;
göklerde uçan melekler bile
kıskanırlardı bizi.

bir gün işte bu yüzden göze geldi
o deniz ülkesinde,
