The life of Edgar Allan Poe was characterized by a dramatic series of successes and failures, breakdowns and recoveries, personal gains and dashed hopes, despite which he created some of the finest literature the world has ever known. Poe perfected the psychological thriller, invented the detective story, and rarely missed transporting the reader to his own supernatural realm. Here, fans may indulge in all 73 of Poe's most imaginative short-stories, including:''The Fall of the House of Usher,'' ''The Murders in the Rue Morgue,'' ''The Tell-Tale Heart,'' ''Ligeia'' and ''Ms. In a Bottle.'' All of his 48 poetic masterpieces are also here, including ''The Raven,'' ''Ulalume'' ''Annabel Lee,'' and ''Tamerlane,'' as well as select reviews and narratives.
