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.
