The Haunted Palace


by Edgar Allan Poe

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(4) Base Camp

Poe loves to throw in tricky words here and there, so that might give you a little trouble at the beginning. Never fear, though, Shmoop is here to give you a little boost. With that help, this should be an easy climb, or rather a pleasant stroll through a super-green valley… that eventually crumbles into hysteria and decay. Good times.
