From The Gold-Bug and Other Tales, Challenge I students read Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “The Pit and the Pendulum.” This masterfully chilling, densely imaginative tale takes place during the Spanish Inquisition, following the experience of a man imprisoned in darkness. Students encounter not only dark, brilliant writing, but also questions of truth, human nature, and the deceit of senses.
