What the community says about Complete Stories and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
- "While there are some crimes in the books, and some mystery within the poetry, the works of Edgar Allen Poe are not, in themselves, of the genre in question. That said, his works are very thought provoking, and can be something of a thrill to read and think about."
- "A great book filled with one of history's best story tellers! This first volume brings together all of Poe's stories and poems. It's interesting reading everything together in the same book because it really helps to understand just how twisted and dark Edgar Allan Poe really was. "
- "On a dark and dreary forenoon in early February I picked up this Everyman edition of the Complete Stories of Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849). The book is a joy to read. Contained in this volume are such classics as: The Black Cat; The Narrative of A. Gordon Pym; The Fall of the House of Usher; The Tell-Tale Heart; A Jerusalem Tale; The Purloined Letter; The Murders in the Rue Morgue (the first detective story) and many other stories which may be less known to the reader. Poe was a brilliant man who wrote in an ornate style showing his great erudition, love of science and the possibilities of life after death. This edition is almost 1000 pages and will keep you flipping the pages with wonder and literary appreciation. A five star classic!"
- "I can't imagine what it must have been like to read Poe's work when it was new in the 19th century. Today it stands, with good reason, among the classics. The moods and suspense he was able to create are still difficult to rival, and there's no doubt in my mind he'll always be considered a horror and Gothic master."
