Review of “The Island of the Fay” (1841)
Edgar Allan Poe (writer).
Read in 2022.
It was during one of my lonely journeyings, amid a far-distant region of mountain locked within mountain, and sad rivers and melancholy tarns writhing or sleeping within all—that I chanced upon a certain rivulet and island.
Plotless proto-fantasy mixing a landscape into Poe’s personal-romance motif.
