About this item
A new selection for the NEA's Big Read program
A compact selection of Poe's greatest stories and poems, chosen by the National Endowment for the Arts for their Big Read program.
This selection of eleven stories and seven poems contains such famously chilling masterpieces of the storyteller's art as "The Tell-tale Heart", "The Fall of the House of Usher", "The Cask of Amontillado", and " The Pit and the Pendulum", and such unforgettable poems as " The Raven", "The Bells", and "Annabel Lee". Poe is widely credited with pioneering the detective story, represented here by "The Purloined Letter", "The Mystery of Marie Roget", and " The Murders in the Rue Morgue".
Also included is his essay "The Philosophy of Composition", in which he lays out his theory of how good writers write, describing how he constructed " The Raven" as an example.
