American short-story writer and poet Edgar Allan Poe is known worldwide as the master of the macabre, but with ´´The Domain of Arnheim´´, first published in 1847, we get to see a whole other side to the revered author, some would even say a much deeper side. ´´The Domain of Arnheim´´ is a short tale about a man of great means named Ellison who builds a castle with a garden of breathtaking beauty called Arnheim. In ´´The Domain of Arnheim´´, Poe delves deep into the human mind, creative imagination, the soul, and the nature of beauty. Poe blends this in-depth study of the spirit and the mind with his characteristic vivid descriptions of Arnheim to create a piece that, although very different from the bulk of his work, should most definitely not be overlooked. 1.
