Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre.

too intense. It's better to soak it in a little at a time, so that you can get a better feel for the different kinds of writing that Poe did, and how he excelled at pretty much everything he put down on paper. Most great writers can't boast of that much. Poe's writing is what makes even his least story or poem come alive -- he brought a gothic, misty vibrancy to his stories, and could make his quiet dialogue seem utterly chilling (" "I have no name in the regions which I inhabit. I was mortal, but am fiend..."). It's not hard to see why he was an influence on authors such as Fyodor Dostoevsky, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle and Franz Kafka.

Okay, so Poe was a creepy man that lived a very strange life... But he was brillant at what he was able to do for his time... Much like his England counterpart Dickens Poe understood the power of the "Serial Novel" making people wait in anticipation for what would come next... Often know as the father of the classic "who done it" mystery Poe never ceases to amaze me... For Halloween I wanted to dive into this classic work and imerge myself in the works of where mystery begin... If your only knowledge of Poe is the Raven your missing out... I put this up against Agatha Christie's "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" as a part of my classics that I will one day read again...

What's in this volume is fine, but it is only ONE VOLUME of a TEN VOLUME SET. You cannot tell from the description of the selection which volume you are getting. When I saw "COMPLETE" Works of Edgar Allen Poe, I assumed it would be the COMPLETE works. There is nothing in the Overview to tell you that it is only one volume in the set you'll be downloading or which of the 10 volumes you might be obtaining. VERY DISAPPOINTING!

I absolutely loved this collection of Poe. All of his works in one collection. Great Nook.

I would have given this 5 stars except I can't tell which volumes I'm downloading out of this 10 volume series. After 15 downloads I have all but the first, which I'm giving up on for now. BnN or google need to add the volume number to the title. Not sure which volume this is.

Imagine a black panther with fifteen tails, giant bird wings, and completely covered in feathers. With three eyes, on the right red, the left blue, and the middle purple.
