The stories and poems in this complete anthology probe to the depths of the human psyche and include the infamous - and arguably the first ever - detective story "Murders in the Rue Morgue"; the disturbing classic, "The Fall of the House of Usher" and the horrifyingly claustrophobic, "The Pit and the Pendulum".

About the Author:

EDGAR ALLAN POE (1809-1849) is one of America's greatest and best-loved writers. Known as the father of the detective story, Poe is perhaps most famous for his short stories--particularly his shrewd mysteries and chilling, often grotesque tales of horror--he was also an extremely accomplished poet and a tough literary critic.Poe's life was not far removed from the drama of his fiction. Orphaned at a young age, he was raised by a foster family. As a young man, he developed problems with gambling, debts, and alcohol, and was even dismissed from the army. His love life was marked by tragedy and heartbreak. Despite these difficulties, Poe produced many works now considered essential to the American literary canon.
