How Much Is The Pale Blue Eye Based On Edgar Allan Poe’s Real Life?
The light blue eye obviously, he takes a lot of clues from Poe’s later work to bring his story to life, including removing a victim’s heart, just like in “The Tell-Tale Heart.” While Poe is best remembered as a modern-day horror writer, he is also a pioneer of detective fiction, so the project is also based on the murder mysteries he showcased in stories like “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”. stolen letter.” But otherwise, very little of what is depicted in the film appears to be real.
It is true that Poe was a cadet at West Point until July 1830, at which time he had already published two books, to little fanfare (his first was 1827’s Tamerlane and other poemsthe same year he lied about his age to enlist in the military). The light blue eye otherwise presents a fictitious account of what he might have experienced at the time. Considering how this story is intended to inspire his later gripping stories, it will most likely be a thoroughly horrifying and macabre mystery.
