Michael Crouch and Nicole Wood share the narration of this gothic ode to the power of creativity. Crouch portrays a teenaged Edgar Allan Poe, who longs for the day he can leave Richmond, Virginia, and his overbearing foster father behind. Just as his goal is within sight, his Muse steps from the shadows to upend all his plans. Crouch infuses his narration with all the fervent emotion a talented but stifled teenager can command. Wood voices the Muse, Lenore, with a perfect blend of menace and longing as she encourages Poe to give in to all of his most dramatic impulses. Both narrators embrace the use of Poe's iconic language and style in this thrilling homage. N.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
