Publisher's Summary

First published in the November 1846 issue of Godey's Lady's Book, the story is set in 19th century Italy and concerns the deadly revenge taken by the insane narrator on a friend he claims has insulted him. Like several of Poe's stories, and in keeping with the 19th century fascination with the subject, the narrative revolves around a person being buried alive.

    "Poe's Fabulous Story of Intrigue and Revenge"

    Poe's famous tale of intrigue and revenge comes to life in this riveting story of how far an enemy will go to try to destroy you; set during the backdrop of. Carnival, where an expensive wine is used to seduce an enemy and weave an unforgettable story about hate and intolerance that is as current today as it was during Poe's time.
