Summary

From the Chartwell Classics series, The Complete Tales & Poems of Edgar Allan Poe features every known literary work from the famous gothic American writer. Edgar Allan Poe is best known as the father of the detective story, but he was also an accomplished poet and tough literary critic whose works span from 1827 to his death in 1849.

Despite Poe's hardships in his personal life, he produced many works that are now considered to be essential to the American literary cannon. His often macabre and dark works include "The Raven," "The Black Cat," "The Tell-Tale Heart," and "Annabelle Lee." This elegant book includes Poe's short stories , melodious poems , literary criticism , essays , and his only full-length novel , The Narrative of A. Gordon Pym . In addition, it also includes a compelling introduction by notable historian and biographer Daniel Stashower.

For Poe fans worldwide, this stunning hardcover edition boasting the entire Poe catalog is the perfect gift.
