Edgar Allan Poe was one of the most original writers in the history of American letters, a genius who was tragically misunderstood in his lifetime. He was a seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, and exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, and Charles Baudelaire, who championed him long before Poe was appreciated in his own country. Baudelaire's enthusiasm brought Poe a wide audience in Europe, and his writing came to have enormous importance for modern French literature. This edition includes his most well-known works--"The Raven, " "The Pit and the Pendulum, " "Annabel Lee, " "The Fall of the House of Usher, " "The Murders in the Rue Morgue"--as well as less-familiar stories, poems, and essays.

Its a pretty good boo...

It's a pretty good book. Edgar just continues to baffle and amaze. He should be an inspiration to all authors. Well, maybe not so much kids authors. But you get the point.

A truly unique writer....

A truly unique writer. His skill is beyond compare. A basic to read again and again. None of his work seems dated. I can still visualize the terror of "Descent into the Maelstrom" even though I first read it when I was fourteen. The images he paints in your mind are enduring.

Ive had this for two ...

I've had this for two or three years now. It's an old used copy and I love it! It's lovely to have so much Poe in one volume.
