Meet the Author

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was orphaned at the age of three and adopted by a wealthy Virginia family with whom he had a troubled relationship. He excelled in his studies of language and literature at school, and self-published his first book, Tamerlane and Other Poems, in 1827. In 1830, Poe embarked on a career as a writer and began contributing reviews and essays to popular periodicals. He also wrote sketches and short fiction, and in 1833 published his only completed novel, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket. Over the next five years he established himself as a master of the short story form through the publication of "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Masque of the Red Death," "The Tell-tale Heart," and other well-known works. In 1841, he wrote "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," generally considered the first modern detective story. The publication of The Raven and Other Poems in 1845 brought him additional fame as a poet.

    Honest Review

    I own the original book of The Complete Tales and Poems of Edger Allan Poe. This book is quite amazing. I love the way he writes. He truly was a great sadistic writer. He has influenced me to write better in my own way. Poe was always different. He could scare you with just a one word sentence. If you love dark, odd, evil short stories and poems - then this book is for you.

    Vast Collection of his greatest works

    Overall this contains many of his most highly regarded short stories and poems. After previewing some of the other books it appears this version in the cleanest. Well i will have to say that Edgar Allan Poe is one of the best poets in history in my opinion, but this book may frighten you or grad your attention after the first page, its an aquired taste figuratively speaking, but it is one of the best books you will ever read if you are in too that type of thing like i am, so buy the book or check it out its worth it! trust me!!
