A celebration of the Gothic gloom in a powerful and evocative theme throughout the nineteenth literary century. Gordon Pym, Alice in Wonderland and Jules Verne as a universal view of travelling. This novel pays tribute to Edgar Allan Poe and his tormented life. After his spouse’s death, suffering from a devastating condition of neglect, Edgar leaves New York to save his soul from demons and desolation. Italy his destination. But soon after his departure, he needs to face the abyss he has continuously tried to escape. A terrible shipwreck forces him to cross the darkest lands of Europe. Backed by some enigmatic fellow travellers, he will find himself fighting for his own life, realizing it’s still worth it, but an unexpected mystery will upset his every perception and drive him to avenge an abominable outrage to his heart, his beloved heart.
