Overview

Famous for his horror stories and brooding poetry, Poe is often considered to be the inventor of the modern detective story, as well. Now, this one marvelously illustrated and popularly priced volume makes it possible to appreciate the full genius of this master of the mysterious and brilliant literary talent. Images, reproduced from a variety of sources (including Aubrey Beardsley, Edouard Manet, and Arthur Rackham) enhance the mood of such favorites as The Pit and the Pendulum, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Cask of Amontillado, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Purloined Letter, A Descent into the Maelström and The Masque of the Red Death. In addition to those "Tales of Mystery and Imagination"--70 chronicles of terror and fantasy that established Poe as the supreme craftsman of the short story--there is The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, Poe's only full-length work and a masterful blending of science and romance. Finally, a section devoted to "The Raven and Other Poems" reflects Poe's obsession with the macabre.

    An Excellent Companion Piece

    A perfect complimentary companion to 'The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe' this volume 'The Complete Illustrated Works of Edgar Allan Poe' includes four short stories 'Astoria', 'Maelzel's Chess Player', 'Magazine Writing Peter Snook' and 'Philosophy of Furniture' and the poems 'To My Mother' and 'Alone' not found in its larger sister volume. The appearance of the additional prose and poetry are quite welcome as are the illustrations accompanying which are from several artists and sources, adding an extra dimension of intrique and interest to the reading experience. 'The Complete Illustrated Works' together with 'The Complete Tales and Poems' make a perfect set for the true reader of Poe's works. Combined, these two volumes are a book collector's dream.
