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.

This does not have Lenore or Mask of the Red Death 2 masterpieces left out

Despite a previous review's assertion, this book (leather-bound Barnes and Noble edition) most definitely includes both "Lenore" and "The Masque of the Red Death." I did notice a couple of poems, such as "A Paean," that seem to be missing from this book, but then it also includes at least one poem, "Deep in Earth," that is not in an earlier "Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe" that I own. The missing poems seem to be ones that are either incomplete, were not published during Poe's lifetime, or are not proven to have been written by Poe. Otherwise, this is a gorgeous collection that includes all of his short stories, most of his complete, confirmed poems, and the novel "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket." Any Poe fan should be very happy with this edition.
