THE IMP OF THE PERVERSE

by Edgar Allen Poe

 
Man: Erik Bauersfeld
Technical Production: John Whiting

". . . this cloud assumes shape far more terrible than any demon of a tale and yet it is but a thought, although a fearful one, and one which chills the very marrow of our bones with the fierceness of the delight of its horror. Through it’s promptings we act without comprehensible object. The wrong or error of any action is often the one unconquerable force that impells us. We act for the reason that we should not."
