Thursday Quotables: Eleonora by Edgar Allan Poe

Since I had no review to post today, I decided to join Bookshelf Fantasies in the Thursday Quotables meme.


This isn’t actually from a book that I’m reading right now, but today’s #fallbookchallenge post on Instagram was a “favorite classic scary book”. I prefer gothic or atmospheric horror, so I chose Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Poe. That got me thinking about my favorite Poe stories, and this quote that I love:

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”

  1. I love the quote you shared! And I love Poe!

    I love the words people used on a regular basis back then. My hubby and I recently watched Ken Burns’ “The Civil War” for the third or fourth time, and a lot of it is quotes read from letters written by everyday people – regular soldiers (not just the officers), wives of the soldiers and so forth. The language is so beautiful and not what we’d expect for just plain working class folks.
