Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Horror stories, science fiction, detective stories and satirical sketches –the variety of Poe will chill and delight

Locked doors, sealed cavities, bricked-up alcoves and premature burial close in on Poe's narrators as they , like their victims, are cut off from light, air and human society. Partly, Poe's stories resonate as the disordered chambers' of the narrators' minds but also they suggest archetypal, if extreme psychological states.

yet Poe was an incurable hoaxer, and in telling some wonderful short stories he also told some excessively tall tales.

The most comprehensive paperback edition available, introduction, selected criticism chronology of Poe's life and times.

Synopsis:

Spiral down dimly lit streets liined with madmen and their black deeds, through cold twists of catacombs, and across a sea that strikes with tight, angry fists. From the tortured mind of Edgar Allan Poe, three tales--"The Cask of Amontillado", "The Black Cat", and "The Fall of the House of Usher"--speak to the hidden places within us all. 20 full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Forty-six stories highlighting Poe's remarkable imagination and ingenuity.
