Publisher's Summary

Prepare to be mesmerized by this tale by Edgar Allen Poe of pseudoscience gone wrong. 

On the brink of death, the friend of a notable mesmerist commits to an experiment of hypnosis prior to imminent death. As the tale progresses, the mesmerist describes keeping his friend in a fully mesmerized state without a pulse or breath. 

When Valdemar asks from his trancelike state to either be awakened or let go, the narrator tries to wake him from the grips of death - with dire consequences.

Awful narration

Nineteen century prose can seem stilted, over formal, and unnatural. This reader makes it considerably worse.
