“To look at a star by glances—to view it in a side-long way, by turning toward it the exterior portions of the retina (more susceptible of feeble impressions of light than the interior), is to behold the star distinctly—is to have the best appreciation of its lustre—a lustre which grows dim just in proportion as we turn our vision fully upon it. A greater number of rays actually fall upon the eye in the latter case, but in the former, there is the more refined capacity for comprehension. By undue profundity we perplex and enfeeble thought; and it is possible to make even Venus herself vanish from the firmament by a scrutiny too sustained, too concentrated, or too direct.”
Harry Clarke’s masterful hand conjured the monstrous orangutang who wandered into the Rue Morgue with devastating consequences. This illustration is from the collection of short stories “Tales of Mystery and Imagination”. Poe’s story is said to be the first modern detective story setting the stage for everyone’s favorite detective – Mr. Sherlock Holmes. If you are a fan of “Murders in the Rue Morgue”, you should probably add this shirt to your collection 🙂
