Seventeen-year-old Edgar Poe counts down the days until he can escape his foster family?the wealthy Allans of Richmond, Virginia. He hungers for his upcoming life as a student at the prestigious new university, almost as much as he longs to marry his beloved Elmira Royster. However, on the brink of his departure, all his plans go awry when a macabre Muse named Lenore appears to him. Muses are frightful creatures that lead Artists down a path of ruin and disgrace, and no respectable person could possibly understand or accept them. But Lenore steps out of the shadows with one request: "Let them see me!"

"Michael Crouch and Nicole Wood share the narration of this gothic ode to the power of creativity. Crouch portrays a teenaged Edgar Allan Poe, who longs for the day he can leave Richmond, Virginia, and his overbearing foster father behind. Just as his goal is within sight, his Muse steps from the shadows to upend all his plans. Crouch infuses his narration with all the fervent emotion a talented but stifled teenager can command. Wood voices the Muse, Lenore, with a perfect blend of menace and longing as she encourages Poe to give in to all of his most dramatic impulses. Both narrators embrace the use of Poe's iconic language and style in this thrilling homage. N.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
