Stewart Pinkerton has created a profoundly important book with THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF FORBES, not only because he has a plethora of inside information about one of the wealthiest families in America and is able to share the secrets of this money mad family with the reader, but also because he demonstrates the skills of a brilliant new writer/5(10). During the whole of a dull, dark, and soundless day in the autumn of the year, when the clouds hung oppressively low in the heavens, I had been passing alone, on horseback, through a singularly dreary tract of country; and at length found myself, as the shades of the evening drew on, within view of the melancholy House of Usher. I know not how.

Publisher Description. An unnamed protagonist (the Narrator) is summoned to the remote mansion of his boyhood friend, Roderick Usher. Filled with a sense of dread by the sight of the house itself, the Narrator reunites with his old companion, who is suffering from a strange mental illness and whose sister, Madeline is near death due to a mysterious disease. The Fall of the House of Usher Language: English: LoC Class: PS: Language and Literatures: American and Canadian literature: Subject: Short stories Subject: Horror tales Subject: Gothic fiction Category: Text: audio books by Jane Austen.

Deliberate “The Fall of the House of Usher” tells a terrifying story, and the narrator is up front and center for the most bizarre parts. But it’s important to note that this tale is told in retrospect, so the deliberate authorial tone isn’t at all compromised by the frantic mania of a horrified narrator. 'The Fall of the House of Usher' is a slow-burning Gothic horror, describing the final hours of a family tormented by tragedy and the legacy of the past. In 'The Tell-Tale Heart', a murderer's insane delusions threaten to betray him, while stories such as 'The Pit and the Pendulum', 'The Raven' and 'The Cask of Amontillado' explore extreme.
