Book brief summary
The Fall of the House of Usher
Roderick Asher, the last offspring of an ancient family, invites a friend of his youth to visit him and stay in a family castle on the shores of a gloomy lake. Lady Madilein, Roderick’s sister is seriously and hopelessly ill, her days are numbered and even her friend’s arrival is not able to dispel Asher’s sadness. After the death of Madeline, one of the castle's dungeons is chosen as the place of her temporary burial. For several days, Roderick was in dismay, until a storm broke out at night and a monstrous circumstance emerged - Lady Madilein was buried alive! Having risen from the grave, she came to her brother with the last reproach, and two souls forever left this mortal world. The castle did not survive its owners for long, after a few moments it was already resting at the bottom of an ominous lake.
