Overview

Edgar Allen Poe (Barnes & Noble Poetry Library) by Edgar Allan Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream

--From A Dream Within a Dream

His poem The Raven caused a sensation, and was nevermore forgotten, but Edgar Allan Poe produced many more powerful and haunting verses. The Bells vividly describes the varied meanings and sounds of the chimes, from merry wedding bells to "brazen" alarms to death tolls. Go back to the "kingdom by the sea" where Annabel Lee lived, loved, and died. Forty-eight poems in all will keep readers riveted.

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.
