The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe is a bookstore on a quest. Our mission is to advance the equality in representation of genders in literature. We take classic works of literature and refocus them to represent the opposite gender of the original work. This allows everyone to consume these works with equal representation of genders in lead and supporting characters. The wonderful aspect of refocusing the classics is that the characters tend to be fully developed. They are not mundane representations of male or female stereotypes. In order to withstand the test of time they had to be human, and therefore like humans, their gender is irrelevant to the story. Refocusing these classics allows for an immediate collection of stories focused on the human experience from the opposite gendered perspective. Our daughters can connect with female characters being bold, strong, and passionate. Our sons with characters that are kind, intelligent and supportive. Read our powerful stories, see the world differently, and join our quest to create gender equality in fiction!
