Many famous maddening stories The Yellow Wallpaper, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Monkey's Paw, The Cask of Amontillado, B24, The Fall ...of the House of Usher, and An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge. This collection begins with two narrative stories. Taking us from our normal everyday life, into a gradual downfall to madness. First, The Yellow Wallpaper, an oppressed wife hides her journal filled with paranoia. She is recouping. From what her husband/physician calls, "a temporary nervous depression," with "hysterical tendencies." The diagnosis is common to women in that period. Next The Tell-Tale Heart, the erratic mad ramblings of a guilty conscience. Now to convince the reader of his sanity, he describes the murder he committed. Then concealed under the floorboards. In the end, the narrator's feelings of guilt result in his hearing the dead man's beating heart. Accompanied by The Monkey's Paw, with three wishes attached, to affect the owner. But the wishes come with an enormous price, for interfering with fate. The Cask of Amontillado is set in an unnamed Italian city at Carnival time. In an unspecified year, is about a man taking fatal revenge on a friend who, he believes insulted him. Then B24, one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s great stories not related to Sherlock Holmes. Is he the accused or conspiracy, innocent or guilty. Consider the burglar caught in the act? Or has an unhappy wife used the opportunity to become a rich widow? You get to decide. With, The Fall of the House of Usher. The tale begins with a narrator arriving at the house of his friend, Roderick Usher. After receiving a disturbing message from him. Asking for help in a distant area of the country, complaining of an illness. As he arrives, the narrator notices a thin crack extending from the roof. Following it down the front of the building and into the neighboring lake. Winding up with one of my favorites, An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge. Farquhar a plantation owner in his mid-thirties is on an Alabama railroad bridge during the Civil War. He is being prepared for execution by hanging, with half a dozen military men and a company of infantrymen. They guard the bridge and carrying out the conviction. Farquhar thinks of his wife and children. Then sidetracked by a loud noise that, to him, sounds like a loud clanging; it is the conclusion of his vigil. He sees the possibility of leaping off the bridge and floating to safety. If he can free his tied hands, only the soldiers drop him from the bridge before he can act on the idea. And a popular outcome for TV episodes of the eerie kind. Charlotte Anna Perkins Stetson Gilman Charlotte Anna Perkins Gilman was born July 3rd in Hartford, Connecticut and died August 17th in Pasadena, California at age 75. A writer, commercial artist, magazine editor, lecturer and social reformer. Gilman was best known for three of her works, The Yellow Wallpaper, Herland, Women and Economics.

THE PORCUPINE AND THE AGOUTI PACAS A porcupine was seeking shelter for the night. He knocked at the entrance to the burrow of an a...gouti paca family. “Paca! Can I stay with you for the night?” “I reside here with a large family,” the eldest paca said. “Three generations of us live here, peacefully, each family occupying one part of the huge space that is our home. If you wish to live amongst us, you are welcome in our burrow.” They showed him round the property and introduced him to every member of the family. “We share everything here and live as brothers,” said the paca. “Our main occupation is unearthing roots and stuffing ourselves with seeds and fruits. While some of us are enjoying food, others keep watch and warn the group of the slightest danger. For the rest of the day we enjoy everything the creek has to offer, with our neighbor, the capybara.” “Oh I won’t be any trouble,” the porcupine said. “I’m discrete by nature and can make do with anything.” They began their meal. The porcupine praised the exquisiteness of the different dishes and congratulated the cooks. Then the eldest paca suggested that they move to the living room for after-dinner drinks. And it was at that moment that, as he stood up, the porcupine stuck his quills into a baby paca’s paw. “Careful now,” said the mother paca......... read more
