Edgar Allan Poe: An Illustrated Companion to His Tell-Tale Storiesby Harry Lee Poe, Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe has become so strongly associated with the dark nature of his work that, in some minds, it’s as if he’s the central character—rather than the author—of the many horror and mystery tales that bear his name. And yet, well over a century after his death, his story remains as fascinating as those he wove, largely because the shadow cast by Poe was not one of his own design.
In Edgar Allan Poe: An Illustrated Companion to His Tell-Tale Stories, Poe’s biography comes to life through images and fascinating memorabilia, including:
- A portion of his handwritten manuscript for the poem “A Dream Within a Dream.”
- Contentious letters he exchanged with his foster father, John Allan.
- The bon indicating his intention to marry his cousin Virginia.
- His controversial obituary as it appeared in the New York Daily Tribune.
