LearnOutLoud.com Review

One of Edgar Allan Poe's most influential short stories is brought to life by Voices in the Dark in this free MP3 download. A classic example of Gothic fiction, in this tale we follow Prince Prospero as he and his nobles wall up their castle in an attempt to escape a plague that has ravaged the nearby countryside. After months of living aloof to the outside world, Prospero holds an extravagant masquerade ball and finds he has an unexpected guest bearing dark tidings. Enjoy this short story download from Voices in the Dark.


Prince Prospero and his courtiers, locked safely away from the plague of the Red Death that has been ravaging the countryside for months, hold a masquerade to which a strange visitor comes. A short story penned by Edgar Allen Poe, an American poet, a master of the horror tale, credited with practically inventing the detective story.
