Selected Stories and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe

by Edgar Allan Poe
 
Creative, sensitive, mercurial - if these words describe the elements of true genius, then Edgar Allan Poe was its tortured personification.

Unsurpassed in the artful fusion of the weird and macabre with the poetic and romantic and in the creation of the incisive, colorful image... Poe's singular talents remain unchallenged.

Which was Poe primarily - story

Overview

Creative, sensitive, mercurial - if these words describe the elements of true genius, then Edgar Allan Poe was its tortured personification.

Unsurpassed in the artful fusion of the weird and macabre with the poetic and romantic and in the creation of the incisive, colorful image... Poe's singular talents remain unchallenged.

Which was Poe primarily - story writer or poet? The duality of his art is well exemplified by such memorable tales as the foreboding Fall of the House of Usher, the coolly logical Purloined Letter. And who has not been moved by the somber beauty of his poem The Raven, the simplicity and purity of his paean To Helen?

The stories and poems selected for this volume give a true picture of Poe's artistry and genius.

Meet the Author

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.
