Mister Ron's Basement #1257

This month we are celebrating Edgar Allan Poe's 200th Birthday on January 19th!

In honor of the Poe Bicentennial, we will be reading some of his funniest stories! 'Wait a minute!' you might be saying -- 'Poe? Funny stories?!!'

Yes indeed, throughout his career, Poe often wrote what he considered humor, although some readers might find it a bit warped and ghastly, to say the least. Still, Poe's funny tales have a distinct voice, and are well worth listening to.

Today we discover a bit about the science of Nosology in the 1835 story called 'Lionizing.'


Time: approx thirteen and a half minutes
