Audio Review: ‘The System of Goudron and Professor Plume’ presented by the National Edgar Allan Poe Theatre on the Air on WYPR

“The System of Goudron and Professor Plume” is the latest installment of the National Edgar Allan Poe Theatre on the Air. While modeled on Edgar Allan Poe’s “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether,” this production takes Poe’s story in a new and interesting direction by incorporating elements from the French Grand Guignol style of naturalistic horror into the production.

Apropos Edgar Allan Poe: a reminiscense and a ringing listen

Growing up in Baltimore, it was impossible to avoid the story of Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849). He was conceivably our most famous resident. There was the mysterious stranger, known as the “Poe Toaster,” who, dressed in black, would visit Poe’s cenotaph every year on the poet’s birthday. The Poe Toaster was known to pour himself a cognac and toast the legendary author, then considerately leave three roses and the rest of the bottle. There was the indelible image of the writer himself, 40, delirious, wandering the streets, to die in the hospital four days later, his cause of death unexplained even now. And there was his status as America’s first truly international writer.

Edgar Allan Poe Once Wrote a Wildly Successful Seashell Guidebook

When you think of the writings of Edgar Allan Poe, what comes to mind? His work played a foundational role in the mystery and horror literature that followed. His command of Gothic imagery retains an ability to unnerve even today. And his fiction continues to inspire writers working in the present century — even though some elements of his work (his take on race, especially) make for troubling reading today.

When the Answer Isn't Always Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe introduced most of us to horror—and to horror poetry—but for me, the writers who taught me how to write horror weren’t traditional horror writers. At least not in the things-that-go-bump-in-the-night kind of way. Sure, I loved reading about ghosts and monsters as much as the next kid, but growing up, the horror I found myself most drawn to explored mental health, insomnia, night terrors, and other real-world afflictions like addiction, self-harm, or divorce. In fact, I think one of the first books of poetry I read as a young adult was Impulse by Ellen Hopkins. It was the first time I had ever seen poetry gathered and formatted as a collective narrative, and I read everything by her after that, not just because they were interesting reads, but because they felt forbidden. These books were about topics that I didn’t openly talk about with my friends or my parents, so I felt like I had a secret, like I could go into the page, unashamed and vulnerable, and no one would judge me. Poetry, in a lot of ways, became a safe space for me, somewhere I could question the world around me and not be afraid to cry or scream. Later on, it would be those exact same reasons that pushed me to write and work in the horror industry, too, namely as a poet.
