This is an EXCELLENT resource. I have included in this package a power point presentation on the recurring motifs found in Poe's writings. These are a great starting point when studying this author. I usually have students copy the slides, then we read something simple like TheRaven and I have them find the recurring motifs. These are later used in a comparative essay. I have also included in the package a quicktime movie of the power point presentation as well as a pdf version. ENJOY!
