The Art of Storytelling: From Parents to Professionals
13
 
 

The Art of Storytelling: From Parents to ProfessionalsThe gift of storytelling may be one of life's most powerful—and envied—skills. A story well told can make us laugh, weep, swell with pride, or rise with indignation. A story poorly told can be not just boring or uncomfortable, but positively painful to experience. Humans seem to be fundamentally hard-wired for stories—they’re how we record both the monumental events of life and the small, everyday moments.

Who Was Edgar Allan Poe?

Who Was Edgar Allan Poe?Filled with broken hearts and black ravens, Edgar Allan Poe’s ghastly tales have delighted readers for centuries. Born in Boston in 1809, Poe was orphaned at age two. He was soon adopted by a Virginia family who worked as tombstone merchants. In 1827 he enlisted in the Army and subsequently failed out of West Point. His first published story, The Raven, was a huge success, but his joy was overshadowed by the death of his wife. Poe devoted his life to writing and his tragic life often inspired his work.

Secret Window, Secret Garden by Stephen King, 1990
48
 
 
Secret Window, Secret Garden by Stephen King, 1990Secret Window, Secret Garden is similar to King's earlier novel The Dark Half. Both are about authors, in this case Mort Rainey, who is a thinly-veiled analogue of King himself. Mort is visited by a man who takes the name of John Shooter, with a manuscript which proves to be an almost exact copy of a story that Mort himself wrote and published some years earlier. The man claims that Mort stole it from him and demands that Mort write a story in his name as compensation or prove that he is innocent, or bad things will happen.
