This is a biography, not a collection of the books that Edgar Allan Poe wrote, if you are looking for a collection of his stories. If you were looking for a biography on Edgar Allan Poe, then you've come to the right place. I wouldn't recommend this, though, because it has an extreme amount of grammartical errors that make the book a little hard to understand.
