Edgar Summary

Edgar feels a quick pain in his neck but believes it to be something that has fallen from overhead. He needed to clear the smoke from the room, so he forces a pitchfork up to the roof of the workshop to open up a hatch. Edgar then falls to the ground. Between the poison and the smoke, Edgar either hallucinates or has a Heavenly vision, and sees Almondine, who urges him to get out. But Edgar cannot get out.

Edgar Analysis
