Entry Description

"William Wilson" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1839.The story tells the tale of a man and his ghostly double, who pursues the man around the world trying to keep him away from vice. Duality is the key concept of the book, especially the ongoing conflicts between two characters within one physical body. By employing visual elements such as tearing paper, reflection from mirror papers and bold color scheme, the book visualizes the inner battle going on. Typesetting remains clean and neat.
