The Essential Tales And Poems of Edgar Allen Poe (Barnes & Noble Classics) by Edgar Allan Poe

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe remains one of Americas most popular and influential writers. His tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpectedand surprisingly modernflashes of dark humor and irony. This anthology offers an exceptionally generous selection of Poes short stories. It includes his famed masterpieces, such as The Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Purloined Letter, featuring Poes great detective, Dupin; his insightful studies of madness The Black Cat and The Tell-Tale Heart; The Gold-Bug, his delightful exercise in code-breaking; and important but lesser-known tales, such as Bon-Bon, The Assignation, and King Pest. Also included are some of Poes most beloved poems, haunting lyrics of love and loss, such as Annabel Lee, nightmare phantasmagories such as The Raven, and his grand experiment in translating sound into words, The Bells.
