Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore Till the dirges of his Hope that melancholy burden bore Of never never more! THIS stanza from The Raven was recommended by James Russell Lowell as an inscription upon the Baltimore monument which marks the resting place of Edgar Allan Poe, the most interesting and original figure in American letters. A nd, to signify that peculiar musical quality of Poe sgenius which inthralls every reader, Mr. Lowell suggested this additional verse, from the Haunted Palace :A nd all with pearl and ruby glowing Was the fair palace door, Through which came flowing, flowing, flowing, And sparkling ever more, A troop of Echoes, whose sweet duty Was but to sing, In voices of surpassing beauty, The wit and wisdom of their king.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.

Edgar Allan Poe was a brilliant writer who, like Oscar Wilde, has suffered for more than a century from hasty categorization. Yes, he wrote macabre horror stories, but the stories were horrifying because Poe so deftly amplified the fears, fantasies, jealousies and morbidity of human beings.

Edgar Allan Poe was a brilliant writer who, like Oscar Wilde, has suffered for more than a century from hasty categorization. His "ratiocinative" mysteries, as we sometimes forget, anticipated the form of detective fiction (mystery), which found its highest form in the tales of Mr. Holmes.

Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and of American literature as a whole, and he was one of the country's earliest practitioners of the short story

Contained in this volume are such classics as: The Black Cat; The Narrative of A. Gordon Pym; The Fall of the House of Usher; The Tell-Tale Heart; A Jerusalem Tale; The Purloined Letter; The Murders in the Rue Morgue (the first detective story) and many other stories which may be less known to the reader.

Edgar Allan Poe, An AppreciationLife of Poe . I can see why there are so many "best of" Poe books, as not all of his pieces are classics, and the deviations interrupt the mood a bit. There are a few 4 star works here, but they are offset by the 2 star content. As many of these stories are scientifically based, this Volume suffers a bit from obsolescence: we no longer can suspend our belief that a balloon ride to the moon is possible, and the idea of a balloon with passengers crossing the Atlantic is no longer a cause for (much) awe.

Edgar Allan Poe (born Edgar Poe) was born in Boston Massachusetts on January 19th 1809 and was orphaned at an early age. Taken in by the Allan family his education was cut short by lack of money and he went to the military academy West Point where he failed to become an officer. His early literary works were poetic but he quickly turned to prose. Thereafter followed the works for which he is now so rightly famed as a master of the mysterious and macabre. In this volume we bring you some of his less well known, but just as chilling, stories, Poe died at the early age of 40 in 1849 in Baltimore, Maryland.

To read this collection is to get a sense of how flowery and overwrought language and writing were of the time of Poe. I found myself impatient with the overly long descriptions. However, it is worth reading the Murders in the Rue Morgue as it is the invention of the detective story.

Poe's works are wonderful as always. When I'm in a particular 'spoopy' or gothic mood, these short stories are the first I whip out for an easy read before bed or on the bus ride to work. This particular copy has LOTS of spelling errors and omitted words all together (replaced with ?? or &?- and so on and so forth) as well as completely omitted names and dates. So if you don't mind being a little confused at first by who's talking about who, then this is worth what you paid (for me it was nothing at the time.) But if you can find a better version, I'd recommend taking the time and money.

its a book. you read it and figure out for yourself if you like it or not. its not the new best seller. its a tried and true classic. you either know what you are getting or you dont. honestly if i knew i would be asked to review free movies and books i would have probably not gotten them in the first place. i dont have to review but writting reviews is the only way to keep the list short and manageable to gain access to the things that a review is truly vaild for.

For 21 years I taught college composition and literature. A short story by Poe ("The Telltale Heart") was included. And I was always impressed by how strongly students reacted. Poe was a genius, unrecognized in his own time. He was a top editor, an outstanding writer and poet, the best literary critic. In fact, he created the type of detective story that Arthur Conan Doyle adapted for Sherlock Holmes. Read Poe.

I enjoyed this book. I studied Poe in High School and College and went through a Poe phase. Now that I am older I appreciated much more than I did before. Knowing some of the history of Poe and his works help a lot too. I would recommend these to anyone interested in short stories. Quick and to the point.

I actually read Edgar Allan Poe 2 first. It made me recall my high school literature classes when we were reading short stories. Many of these stories made me shudder. I love mysteries and Edgar Allan Poe is a master at mysteries. It also made me think of some of the old time Alfred Hitchcock shows from my early childhood. I enjoyed reading this book.
SVariety of stories writhe a few hundred years ago or so. Some are excellent, especially the one about going to the moon in a balloon. The science is pretty good when allotting for the period when it was written
