Book seen in "It Came From Beyond"


Book seen in "Fern & Persimmony Glitchet"

Edgar Allan Poe (January 19, 1809 - October 7, 1849) is an author and poet famous for many poems, short stories, mysteries, and other works.

In "I'm a Poet," Buster looks through a book containing a collection of poems by Poe. He specifically mentions the poems "The Haunted Palace" and "The Conqueror Worm," and also a line from "The Sleeper," "it was the dead who groaned within." The book says "Poe" at the top of the book, and a raven on the cover, referencing the famous Poe poem "The Raven." This book is seen again being read by Grandma Thora in "It Came From Beyond," and also in "Fern & Persimmony Glitchet" in Trident Books, where it has a slightly different cover.

In "The Fright Stuff," Brain mention's one of Poe's famous short stories, "The Tell-Tale Heart," when he, Arthur, Buster, and Binky are trying to come up with a prank to pull on the girls at Muffy's party. Brain's fantasy of this, however, is nothing like the actual short story, as it instead involves a heart shaped candy box with no candy inside of it.

When Binky cannot stop rhyming in "Rhyme for Your Life," he mentions Poe.

In "Arthur and the Haunted Tree House," there are numerous references of Poe's work throughout Ratburn's house, including "The Tell-Tale Heart", "The Cask of Amontillado", and others.
