Poe Fridays: The Devil in the Belfry
Last Friday's selection for Poe Fridays was The Devil in the Belfry. If you have yet to read this selection or would like to refresh your memory, you can find a copy of the short story here.
If I had to summarize this story, this is what I would have to say: A strange outsider comes to town, aggressively makes a change to the village's routine, and puts it all into utter chaos, where it may still be today. Is this what everyone else gets from it? I'm just not sure I completely understand this one. Was there supposed to be a point or moral? I don't know . . . I just felt it to be . . . well, weird!
Next week: Morella (and, hopefully, I will actually post this one on time!!)
