Even The Crazyest People Have Dreams

888 words - 4 pages

Edgar Allan Poe was a crazy man; however, he was one of the best story and poetry writer in the world history. He wrote the short stroy “The Tell-Tale Heart” one of the most widly known literature pieces he wrote. “The Tell-Tale Heart” is one of the most suspenseful storyies I had ever read.
