Overview

Born to an unfortunate heritage, orphaned, unsympathetically raised, and then abandoned, Edgar Allan Poe struggled for greatness in an adverse social and economic climate — a setting not improved by his fiery temperament and caustic criticism of others. Poe's melancholy brilliance, his passionate lyricism, and his tormented soul would make him one of the most widely read and original writers in American literature. Here, in one volume, are his classic short works: masterpieces of horror, terror, humor, and adventure — and the finest lyric and narrative poetry of this ill-fated genius whose influence on both prose and verse continues to this day.

Pocket Books' Enriched Classics present the great works of world literature enhanced for the contemporary reader. This edition of Great Tales And Poems Of Edgar Allan Poe contains the original Pocket Books introduction, first published in 1951, along with an updated selection of critical excerpts, and suggestions for further readings.

This book contains some of the best stories i have ver read. They may be queer but they do send a chiver down the spine of the person who dare to read this book.

Edgar Allen Poe is one of the best writers of all time. The Short-Story, The Raven, was absolutly the best one I have ever read. The outcome was totally unexpected and the suspence will literally drive you insane.

Edgar Allen Poe is one of the best authors in the history of poetry, and literature. His tales will continue to live on, although his death may have passed. Some stories send qurious thoughts of fear into your mind, others send pure evaluation of the mind. A wonderful book.
