THE ISLAND OF THE FAY (1941)

This is an entirely naturalistic rumination. Poe's narrator observes an island in a stream, and imagines a faery creature pass from life to death as it rounds the island's light side and encounters its dark side. This opposition between innocence and death was better served in the more poetic SHADOW-- A PARABLE.
