Overview

The life of American writer Edgar Allan Poe was characterized by a dramatic series of successes and failures, breakdowns and recoveries, personal gains and hopes dashed through, despite which he created some of the finest literature the world has ever known. Over time his works have influenced such major creative forces as the French poets Charles Baudelaire and Andre Gide, filmmaker D.W. Griffith and modern literary legend Allen Ginsberg. Best known for his poems and short fiction, Poe perfected the psychological thriller, invented the detective story, and rarely missed transporting the reader to his own supernal realm. He has also been hailed posthumously as one of the finest literary critics of the nineteenth century. In Edgar Allan Poe: Complete Tales and Poems fans may indulge in all of Poe's most imaginative short-stories, including The Fall of the House of Usher, The Murders in Rue Morgue, The Tell-Tale Heart, Ligeia and Ms. In A Bottle. His complete early and miscellaneous poetic masterpieces are also here, including The Raven, Ulalume, Annabel Lee, Tamerlane, as well as select reviews and narratives.

Meet 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.

Poe has a beautiful way with words, even if they are grim or morbid. Of all the stories and authors i was forced to read in english poe was by far my favorite, his words and stories flowed like a stream of blood from the heart to the brain. Most people are familiar with The Raven, but it was his story of The Black Cat that peeked my interest. This is a fine collection that i encourage everyone to read.

This is an awesome collection to have in one's own library. Everyone should own Poe works, along with Ohio Blue Tips by Jeanne E. Clark, The Photos In The Closet by Daniel E. Lopez, and works by Alison Townsend.

His writing is classic and so pure that it is difficult for many to truly grasp and comprehend. It is deep and very emotional. Amazing. I gave one as a gift to a Junior High girl and she screamed with joy when she saw it. The significance of his writing cannot be overstated.

Poe is one of the all time best. Extremely cynical and dark stuff. Sometimes hard to read, but worth the effort.

I'm a Poe lover so don't take my advice, also if you don't like Poe get out of looking into this book. For the Poe lovers, I'm sure this book has all his tales, and poems like The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Black Cat, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Oval Portrait, etc. Also, this book holds essays a narritve of a guy named Gordon A. Pym. PLUS MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!
