READ IN ONE SITTING. Edgar Allan Poe says his first desideratum, or design goal, was a short length. Poe insisted that short pieces were superior to novels because for the impression to be strongest the reader had to consume the material in one sitting.

If any literary work is too long to be read at one sitting, we must be content to dispense with the immensely important effect derivable from unity of impression — for, if two sittings be required, the affairs of the world interfere, and everything like totality is at once destroyed. —Poe, 1846
