Overview

This Housemartin Classics edition includes the full original text as well as an easy to use interactive table of contents.

List of Works in this Volume:

• Edgar Allan Poe (bio)
• Death of Edgar Allan Poe (bio)
• The Unparalleled Adventures of one Hans Peall
• The Gold Bug
• Four Beasts in one - the homo-camel-leopard
• The Murders in the Rue Morgue
• The Mystery of Marie Roget
• The Baloon-Hoax
• Ms Found in a Bottle
• The Oval Portrait

This first volume has two stories that show Poe's potential to become master of macabre later in his career, The Oval Portrait and Ms Found In a Bottle. The set a cool and creepy tone even if they don't deliver the oomph of some of his later work. Also included are the stories The Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Murder of Marie Roget. These are both excellent detective stories, only surpassed by Sherlock Holmes tales.

The name Poe brings to mind images of murderers and madmen, premature burials, and mysterious women who return from the dead. His works have been in print since 1827 and include such literary classics as “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Raven,” and “The Fall of the House of Usher.” This versatile writer’s oeuvre includes short stories, poetry, a novel, a textbook, a book of scientific theory, and hundreds of essays and book reviews. He is widely acknowledged as the inventor of the modern detective story and an innovator in the science fiction genre, but he made his living as America’s first great literary critic and theoretician. Poe’s reputation today rests primarily on his tales of terror as well as on his haunting lyric poetry.
