The Complete Tales & Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
Print
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 supernatural 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 here also, including The Raven, Ulalume, Annabel Lee, Tamerlane , as well as select reviews and narratives.

It's weird- i've read a lot of poets in school and such, but
I always come back to Poe! His work his so dark, but if you study the words, there's almost a lightness to them. It stunns me how he can take simply ordinary things (Like a raven) and twist them into complete oppisites and unknowns. Poe has helped me grow up, and if you have the chance to read his works, do it! I even still have Eldorado memorized from a class recitation.

This book is FANTASTIC! I love Poe, and having all his works in a book (even if it IS over 1000 pages long!) to go through all at once is amazing!

Poe takes horror to a whole new level- subtle things, not always gore. He's also romantic, as demonstrated in "Annabel Lee" (my favorite poem).
If you haven't yet- read this!
