  1. I got introduced to the Gothic subculture through literature too, I remember that when I was in sixth grade I went to my school’s library and just randomly picked up a book, it was written by Edgar Allan poe and it contain many of his short stories as well as some of his poems and I became so in love with his writing that I spent the rest of my sixth, seventh… up to now reading his works, and that’s how I discovered I was born to be a goth, so that’s why literature is so special to me and I really like your recommendations on several books, thanks Julia <3

    1. That’s awesome, Sofia! I also discovered Edgar Allan Poe some time in middle school, and his works have had a huge influence on me. My favorite pieces are Annabel Lee and The Tell-Tale Heart.
      I hope this site helps you discover even more great literature!
