Edgar Allan Poe: Master of Suspense

by Tristan Boyer Binns

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Although not much detail is known about Poe's life, Binns explains that the writer lost his parents at a young age, had a rocky relationship with his foster parents, and was described by a fellow student as being "excitable & restless, at times wayward, melancholic & morose" as a young man. Otfinoski discusses Stoker's early childhood, including the stories his mother told him while he recovered from chronic illness, his days in college, and influences of other writers. An entire chapter is devoted to the many presentations of Dracula both on stage and screen. Both books make excellent use of archival photos and reproductions, and extensive time lines provide historical connections and insights. These series entries will appeal to report writers as well as to general readers.-Denise Moore, O'Gorman Junior High School, Sioux Falls, SD Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
