Red Stock Market Death!

cover.jpgPerhaps to celebrate October 13th, Edgar Allen Poe gets his own cover this week–the New Yorker resurrected “The Masque of the Red Death” for our economic crisis.

Artist Robert Risko turned the scary story into bloody allegory for our own kingdom in decline. Magically, GalleyCat has spotted this literary allusion before the hawk-eyed writers at Wikipedia and The Huffington Post.

Let us celebrate the spooky genius of Mr. Poe as we gaze upon this stock market painting. Warning, this quote contains spoilers!

“And now was acknowledged the presence of the Red Death. He had come like a thief in the night. And one by one dropped the revellers in the blood-bedewed halls of their revel, and died each in the despairing posture of his fall. And the life of the ebony clock went out with that of the last of the gay.”
