Edgar Poe. The Black Cat (in English, adapted for intermediate)

The Black Cat by Edgar Poe (adapted for intermediate)Короткий рассказ «The Black Cat» (Черный кот) известного американского писателя Эдгара По  относится к жанру horror stories. Это страшная история про кота, рассказанная от имени ожидающего смерти убийцы своей жены. Эта история о том, как добрый человек, любивший животных, под влиянием алкоголя постепенно превращается в садиста, а затем убийцу. Этот рассказ  имеет сходство с рассказом Сердце-обличитель, в котором человек, совершивший преступление, сам не позволяет себе остаться безнаказанным и в порыве безрассудства выдает себя. Рассказ «Черный кот»  предлагается для чтения на английском языке также и в более упрощенном варианте —Edgar Poe. The Black Cat (for pre-intermediate)

The plot of the story is rather simple. Two people, a young one and an old one, lived together. The young man helped the old man to keep the house. But with time the old man started to irritate the young. It was his pale blue eye that made him mad.  What happpened in the end you will know when you read the story.

Эдгар По. Ворон (лучшие переводы на русский язык)Если Вы когда-либо оставались один в доме, то, возможно, тоже обращали внимание на странные стуки, которые начинают раздаваться, когда стемнеет. Представьте ночь, стоит полная тишина, и вдруг раздается стук, потом еще и еще…  Страшно? Да нет, ничего страшного! Это просто птицы бегают по крыше дома и стучат по ней своими клювами. Я сама часто слышу такие стуки по ночам. Однако вот какое стихотворение придумал, услышав подобные стуки, известный американский писатель — романтик Эдгар По. Cлучилась эта темная история в 1844 году.
