The works of an American gothic master collected in one volume

Of all the great American writers, Edgar Allan Poe staked out perhaps the most unique and vivid reputation as a master of the macabre. Poe remains the first choice of entertainment for many who want a spine-chilling thrill.

Born in Boston in 1809 and dead at the age of forty, Poe wrote across several fields during his life and was noted for his poetry and short stories as well as his criticism. The best of each of these is collected here, including the classic poem The Raven and beloved stories like The Tell-Tale Heart. In his introduction to this volume, G. R. Thompson argues that Poe was a great satirist and comedic craftsman as well as a formidable gothic writer. "All of Poe's fiction," Thompson writes, "and the poems as well, can be seen as one coherent piece -- as the work of one of the greatest ironists of world literature."
