Acoustic Learning - The Edgar Allan Poe Collection #10: Deus et MachinaThe Edgar Allan Poe Collection #10: Deus et Machina
By Edgar Allan Poe; Read by Christopher Aruffo
4 CDs – 4 hours 38 minutes [UNABRIDGED]
Publisher: Acoustic Learning
Published: September 2009
ISBN: 9780980058161
Edgar Allan Poe witnessed the Industrial Revolution as it roared into full gear, and he was fascinated by its possibilities. In this collection, Poe writes both factually and satirically of new technological advances in weaponry, transportation, biology, aeronautics, and more. Poe foretells how Anastatic Printing will revolutionize the writer’s craft, and creates the alchemical hoax Von Kempelen and His Discovery to unnerve the would-be prospectors of the upcoming California Gold Rush. The Deus et Machina collection also encompasses Poe’s philosophical explorations into the afterlife. At the threshold of death, we learn The Facts In the Case of M Valdemar and experience Mesmeric Revelation; in the cosmic halls of the life beyond, we eavesdrop on The Conversation of Eiros and Charmion, The Power of Words, and The Colloquy of Monos and Una, each discussion revealing a new and fascinating perspective of the spiritual universe.
