The Quick Explanation
The Pale Blue Eye is about the inability to cope with death. Lea is stricken with a seemingly incurable disease, so she and her family resort to communicating with satanic forces. They disembowel several young men in order to regain life, thus committing a sadistic, inhuman act to preserve Lea’s humanity. Landor and Poe are investigating the crimes, but before long they reveal contrasting motives. Poe has fallen in love with Lea and wishes to preserve her life. But Landor secretly takes the case to enact revenge on the people who took his daughter’s life. With all these storylines converging, the precariousness of life takes center stage: some are desperate to find the poetry of life and live to the fullest, while others feel trapped by life and all its cruelties—death is either a menace or a remedy. It’s the line society as a collective constantly toes as it searches for meaning and serenity.
