Description

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 supernal 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 also here, including The Raven, Ulalume, Annabel Lee, Tamerlane, as well as select reviews and narratives.

I discovered The Book Depository: many books for a fair price. I bought Atlas Shrugged, The Karamazov Brothers, and this. Atlas Shrugged didn't arrive. Well, they'll give me a refund, so i'm fine anyway. I'm still waiting the Dostoevski book, and Edgar Allan Poe Complete Stories and Poems is here! I loved it. I can't found any Allan Poe collection here at Chile, and Book Depository helped a lot with my problem. AND FOR 15 BUCKS! Buy it.show more
