A coffin fragment is your first taste of what's in store at "Terror of the Soul," the Morgan's aptly titled Edgar Allan Poe exhibit. Housed in a blood-red room, the show includes the bad boy of American literature's surviving manuscripts alongside illustrations of the Raven and Black Cat. Also highlighted are Poe's talents as a poet, essayist, and fiction writer comfortable with the uncomfortable. Specializing in several genres, horror and mystery in particular, he was anything but an author regulated to sophisticated children and young adults. In addition, the exhibition does an excellent job illustrating the many writers Poe influenced.
