Overview

The life of American writer Edgar Allan Poe was characterized by a dramatic series of successes and failures, breakdowns and recoveries, personal gains and hopes dashed through, despite which he created some of the finest literature the world has ever known. Over time his works have influenced such major creative forces as the French poets Charles Baudelaire and Andre Gide, filmmaker D.W. Griffith and modern literary legend Allen Ginsberg. Best known for his poems and short fiction, Poe perfected the psychological thriller, invented the detective story, and rarely missed transporting the reader to his own supernal realm. He has also been hailed posthumously as one of the finest literary critics of the nineteenth century. In Edgar Allan Poe: Complete Tales and Poems fans may indulge in all of Poe's most imaginative short-stories, including The Fall of the House of Usher, The Murders in Rue Morgue, The Tell-Tale Heart, Ligeia and Ms. In A Bottle. His complete early and miscellaneous poetic masterpieces are also here, including The Raven, Ulalume, Annabel Lee, Tamerlane, as well as select reviews and narratives.

Meet the Author

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.

Poe has a beautiful way with words, even if they are grim or morbid. Of all the stories and authors i was forced to read in english poe was by far my favorite, his words and stories flowed like a stream of blood from the heart to the brain. Most people are familiar with The Raven, but it was his story of The Black Cat that peeked my interest. This is a fine collection that i encourage everyone to read.

Edgar Allan Poe always clasps my tongue as his words still haunt my dreams. As master at macabre, being the age of 13, I wish to become as melodramatic a writer he will always be known. He is who all horror and suspense writers' ambition to be. Inspirational.

The SLJ review DOES NOT go to this book.  I ordered this book after reading the review that said: "However, where this edition of Graphic Classics succeeds most brilliantly is in its renditions of Poe's poems, which remain untouched yet are sumptuously and often lavishly decorated."  It might be a great book, but it is not what I thought I was ordering.  Disappointed.

Edgar Allan Poe was a master at macabre. He is whom all horror/suspense writers today hope to be, myself included.

I neven was much for Poe's stories, but the poems really creep me out. The things in them follow me through dreams (and most things don't do that) and conciousness. They make me shiver. That's why I love them.

Well, it finally arrived after 6 weeks (based on my previous orders, it usually only take 3 weeks).  I didn't know that it would come without a wrapping or something. By the time i received it, the pages little bit bent, the dust jacket kind of scratched, the edges of the book is also a little bit bent, there's a little tearing at the last page of the book.  But it still a good collection overall. Looking forward to reading this.

I ordered the book well over a month ago and never got it. Your shipping performance to overseas (B&N and market sellers) is very poor compared to AMAZON. Get the book over or give me the money back! As for the book, I know Poe and I'm sure the contents are excellent. I cannot say anything about the quality of the book, never having seen it. All the books I have ordered from Amazon at the same date arrived long ago
