Overview

First published in 1919, Tales of Mystery and Imagination matched Edgar Allan Poe's best tales of horror and suspense with the expressive artwork of Harry Clarke. This beautifully designed volume reproduces more than thirty full-color and black-and-white illustrations that give substance to the terrifying imagery of "The Tell-Tale Heat," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Masque of the Red Death," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and twenty-five other masterpieces of the macabre. As Neil Gaiman writes in his introduction, Clarke's art perfectly captures the perversity, madness, and delight in horror that were the hallmarks of Poe's dark genius. Tales of Mystery and Imagination is one of Barnes & Noble's leatherbound classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in exquisitely designed bonded leather bindings with distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensible cornerstone for any home library.

About 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.
