The Complete Stories and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe

by Edgar Allan Poe

Blurb

Edgar Allan Poe was one of the most original writers in the history of American letters, a genius who was tragically misunderstood in his lifetime. He was a seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, and exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, and Charles Baudelaire, who championed him long before Poe was appreciated in his own country. Baudelaire's enthusiasm brought Poe a wide audience in Europe, and his writing came to have enormous importance for modern French literature. This edition includes his most well-known works--"The Raven," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "Annabel Lee," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Murders in the Rue Morgue"--as well as less-familiar stories, poems, and essays.

Die kurzen Horrorstories sind unglaublich gut: "Das verräterische Herz"; "Grube und Pendel"; "Der Kater". Auch für junge Leser ein guter Einstieg in die hohe Literatur.
