Description

Product Description

One of the most original American writers, Edgar Allan Poe shaped the development of both the detectvie story and the science-fiction story. Some of his poems—"The Raven," "The Bells," "Annabel Lee"—remain among the most popular in American literature. Poe''s tales of the macabre still thrill readers of all ages. Here are familiar favorites like "The Purloined Letter," "The Fall of the House of Usher," and "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," together with less-known masterpieces like "The Imp of the Perverse," "The Narrative of A. Gordon Pym," and "Ligeia," which is now recognized as one of the first science-fiction stories, a total of seventy-three tales in all, plus fifty-three poems and a generous sampling of Poe''s essays, criticism and journalistic writings.

From the Inside Flap

All of the tales by the master of the detective and the macabre story. 53 of his best-known poems plus essays and criticisms.

From the Back Cover

All of the tales by the master of the detective and the macabre story. 53 of his best-known poems plus essays and criticisms.

About the Author

Poems ONLY (no tales despite the misleading title)
Reviewed in the United States on January 24, 2018
Poems only, no tales as advertised. Why did the publisher choose such a misleading title? You''re only getting half of what you paid for but at full price.

I feel rather cheated. Despite the title and boastful description on this particular format, not a single tale is included. The formatting is no different than if it was merely a paper copy of a webpage, with what seem to have been hyperlinks to the notes and table of contents.
I ordered the paperback, which is pictured here on Amazon, and expected a complete collection; instead, I only got his poetry and a few works of prose, without any short stories or "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket".

If you order, I caution you not to order the paperback version, as it appears to be the only one with this problem judging by reviews.

Yet this book contains no tales and only poems, this is such a misleading title and very unfair to people purchasing this book.

Chilling, Grotesque, and Creepy! Perfect for Autumn Reading as the Spirits Begin to Prowl

Edgar Allen Poe may have lived in the 19th century, but he was a true Renaissance man. He wrote some of the best known and still widely read short stories, including "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Tell-tale Heart," and "The Gold-Bug." He also wrote dozens of poems, including "The Raven." He knew French so well that many of his stories contain entire sentences in that language. Oh, and Spanish and Italian, too. He cited quotes in Latin and Greek in many stories (and Kindle won''t translate these!), as well as allusions to Greek tragedy and mythology. He understood mathematics and astronomy well enough to include many of these facts in his stories. He may have been the master of horror stories, but he was also a romantic.

Some of these Gothic stories are chilling psychological tales. Others are just downright bloody. Still others are supernatural, grotesque, and absolutely creepy. A few are hilarious. And to be totally honest, quite a few are really boring! They are filled with imagery, symbolism, irony, and an unforgettable assortment of macabre characters. In addition, the stories are also a weird type of travelogue with settings in such diverse places as Paris, Edinburgh, London, rural England, Venice, Hungary, Sullivan''s Island, South Carolina, ancient Jerusalem, and even in a hot air balloon in the year 2848.

Being a literate person means reading the classics. Here are just some of the treats in store with this book:
• "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" is considered the first modern-day detective story. Poe employs literary elements that are later copied by all the great detective writers, including Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

• "The Mystery of Marie Rogêt" is the first time a real crime was turned into a detective story. Poe''s fictionalized murder mystery takes place in Paris, while the real crime occurred in New York City.

• Although Poe did not invent cryptography, he definitely popularized it after the publication of "The Gold-Bug," which includes one of fiction''s earliest ciphers.

Best of all, these stories are perfect for autumn reading as the spirits begin to prowl.

This is a very long book, but I read it through cover to cover by reading one short story and one poem a day—for 65 days. It was a doable amount to read, and in the end I can say I have truly read and enjoyed with awe the complete works of this studied American author.

I had forgotten how beautiful and lyrical E.A.Poe''s poetry is,
along with with his compelling tales.

And here are the requisite extra words to fulfill the dumb word quota. Sometimes one word with no title is more than adequate. I hardly ever leave reviews because of the word and title rules. Which is a shame because at least giving stars should be counted for the author''s work.

That said, with the complete collection you can dip in and out on a whim. Everyone (yes, everyone) should give Poe a try.

Others have complained that the book is incomplete. So it seems, based on the sixteen titles listed in the "Tales" table of contents. As it turns out, many other works, such as "The Cask of Amontillado," "The Fall of the House of Usher," and "The Gold Bug" are not listed in the contents but may be found via searching. For 99 cents I''d be ok with that, except I don''t know all of Poe''s work. To find works I haven''t seen or heard of I have to browse the book page by page until I stumble across something I haven''t seen before. Five stars for content (I think, I haven''t actually checked to see that everything is really there) but only three stars for execution.

This collection was definitely worth the little bit of money I spent. It is a mix bag of Amazingly good stories to mediocre, to not good at all. However this isn''t surprising as no author is going to have a 100% great track record. I very much enjoyed many of the stories. They are suspenseful, spooky, and well written. Great reads for Halloween. The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Gold Bug, The Oval Portrait, The Black Cat, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Masque of the Red Death, The Cask of Amontillado, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Premature Burial, The Oblong Box, and The Raven are my favorites.

Creased paperback that reads like its just been printed off a website. There are parts of text that i assume were meant to be hyperlinks and you eventually find what it is meant to link to 20 pages later inserted randomly into another poem. Poem titles start on one page then finish 3 pages later after something else. The contents page holds no actual relevance to where everything is in the book. Very disappointed.

Cloth-bound and very nice to stroke. Haven''t read it yet but it''s so hefty that I could probably use it to kill myself with when I get horribly depressed after I do. Don''t expect to be fitting this in your pocket and taking it on a train unless you''re MC Hammer, probably avoid putting it in a backpack if you don''t want an extra leg-day in the exercise routine and a slipped disk or two, either. It''s a book you keep at home and smugly explain to the plebs that Kindles may end up cheaper in the long run, and may be more portable than some books, but your Poe volume can beat them in a fight 10-on-1. Lovely.

The Fall of the House of Usher and The Purloined Letter by Edgar Allan Poe In The Purloined Letter, Poe is at his level headed and rational best. The narrator and Dupin are sitting by the fireside one evening when the Prefect of Parisian Police bursts in. He has a big problem on his hands: an influential woman has had an incriminating letter stolen by the Minister D. The police are certain it''s in his hotel but they''ve applied all possible scientific method to searching the place and still haven''t found the letter: "We not only opened every book, but we turned over every leaf in each volume, not contenting ourselves with a mere shake...we also measured the thickness of every bookcover, with the most accurate admeasurement, and applied to each the most jealous scrutiny of the microscope." Soon the police have exhausted their scientific method. Thankfully, Dupin is on hand to solve the mystery using psychology, produce the letter and explain (with a forgivable amount of smugness) precisely how he managed it. The Fall of the House of Usher is an entirely different proposition. The narrator receives an unexpected letter from an old friend and hurries to his home. He hasn''t seen Roderick Usher for many years and is deeply disturbed by the house and by the state that Roderick has fallen into. He has declined into a pale, melancholy shadow of his earlier self and his sister Madeline is on the verge of succumbing to a wasting disease the doctors cannot identify: "A sensation of stupor oppressed me as my eyes followed her retreating steps. When a door, at length, closed upon her, my glance sought instinctively and eagerly the countenance of the brother; but he had buried his face in his hands, and I could only perceive that a far more than ordinary wanness had overspread his emaciated fingers through which trickled many passionate tears." Madeline dies not long after and the narrator helps his old friend to place her coffin in the vault. Roderick''s decline worsens and one terrible night he bangs on the bedroom door of his old friend and cries out that in burying his sister he might possibly have been a little hasty... Two very different tales from the nineteenth-century master of chill and suspense. Plus much else besides. Enjoy them on the train rattling home from work or by the fireside on a dark and stormy night. Either way you''ll be mesmerised. Enjoy!

Most of the reviews here on aamazon appear to be of the paper and hardback versions, Sadly the Kindle version , whilst having the excellent Poe stories , is plagued by corruptions of certain names and words as though written in code which I doubt was in the original which I read some years ago. It makes for difficult and irritating reading and Poe - particularly in his detective stories , is already a tad longwinded in his expositions showing the police to be bumbling fools and his master detective to be the DB''s
