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.

This book is filled with some of Poe's best work. What I thout was superb about this book was that it had very few pictures. Because his stories are so grotesque and scary, you dont need pictures to be scared. Overall I would recomend it to anyone who ever has read intelectual horror.
