by Edgar Allan Poe
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- Do you remember one of your dreams that was particularly amazing? Could you write a poem or make a movie about it?
- Do you think our idea of what's scary or spooky has changed in the last 150 years? Does this poem make your spine tingle a little?
- Why do you think we love to read and think about the supernatural? What is it about ghosts that keeps us fascinated, even now that we're supposed to be so civilized and modern?
- Would you choose to have a dream like this if you could? Does it sound more like a nightmare or an amazing journey?
