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.
