WUHS students see Aronoff show on the life of Edgar Allan Poe

Ms. Puckett’s College Prep Language Arts III and Mr. DeAtley’s Performing Arts classes took  a field trip to the Aronoff Center in downtown Cincinnati on Wednesday, Feb. 22.  The classes watched a one-man-show that centered around the life of Edgar Allan Poe staring Duffy Hudson called “In the Shadow of the Raven”.
In the show, the students learned about a few of Poe’s famous writings and also learned a little about his life. They learned that almost all of the influential women in his life died. First his Mother died, then his foster mother, and also his wife . They all died early in his life and they died from tuberculosis or “the red death” as Poe called it.
During the show he explained how someone killed a man.  “I myself was pretty shocked by this, he was buried under the floor,” said WUHS student Kelsea Hamilton. Although you might think it was real, you might recognize this as “The Tell-Tale Heart.”
The actor also picked selections from Poe’s poetry, like “Annabel Lee” and “The Raven.”  “Not only did they he tell us a little about his personal life as an actor he also encouraged a question and answer session about Poe,” added Hamilton. “I thought that this was a a nice addition to the show.  I liked that he not only could act like Poe he could also answer many questions about his life that people are curious about.”
