Reader Reviews for "Poe: Pelted, Pounded, Pummeled and Pulverized"


Reviewed by Jay Dubya
Description

Poe: Pelted, Pounded, Pummeled and Pulverized is a unique collection of eighteen classic Edgar Allan Poe short stories that have been creatively rewritten and satirized into adult parody form featuring adult content and language, and the work is author Jay Dubya’s thirty-fifth book. When Jay Dubya (John Wiessner) was a New Jersey public school English teacher, during his thirty-four year classroom career he often enjoyed teaching and reading E.A. Poe’s “influential literature” to his sometimes-enlightened middle and high school students.
Even though Poe (1809-1849) had died at a very young age, he still managed to remarkably write and publish over nine hundred pages of imaginative short stories and awe-inspiring poems.
In addition to being a superb writer, Poe was also an excellent editor and literary critic and is widely regarded as one of the most important authors in American literature. The now-esteemed writer is often referred to as “the father of the American short story” and as “the inventor of the detective story.”
Edgar married his thirteen-year-old cousin Virginia Clemm and made a very modest living as a writer and as a newspaper journalist. Poe had a nasty temper, took drugs as painkillers and because of his mercurial disposition, couldn’t keep a job for any length of time. In 1847 Virginia died of tuberculosis and Poe, underfed, pale and gaunt-looking, passed away two years later.
Poe’s detective stories “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Purloined Letter” made him famous in addition to his classic horror tales “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “The Masque of the Red Death,” “The Cask of Amontillado” and the popular-but-eerie epic “The Tell Tale Heart.”

Poe: Pelted, Pounded, Pummeled and Pulverized has three companion books that satirize the works of O. Henry, Mark Twain and Jack London.

1) O. Henry: Obscenely and Outrageously Obliterated (220 pages)
2) Twain: Tattered, Trounced, Tortured and Traumatized (212 pages)
3) London: Lashed, Lacerated, Lampooned and Lambasted (216 pages)
