9781470809393: The Raven and Selected Short Stories

[MP3CD audiobook format in vinyl case.]

The Raven is the title work in this collection of twelve short stories and poems and it is widely regarded as the most famous of Edgar Allan Poe's writings. This unsettling tale in verse tells of a man's slow descent into madness as he mourns the loss of his lover. The mysterious visit of a talking raven that utters only one word sparks the man's steady decline.

*Now the inspiration for a major motion picture starring John Cusack -- these tales of mystery and terror are here brought vividly to life by Blackstone Audio. Poe, the inventor of the modern detective story, was an expert at weaving suspense and horror into tales that thrill and chill.

Included in this collection are:

*The Raven
*The Pit and the Pendulum
*The Tell-Tale Heart
*The Fall of the House of Usher
*The Masque of the Red Death
*The Cask of Amontillado
*The Murders in the Rue Morgue
*The Black Cat
*The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar
*Hop-Frog
*The Mystery of Marie Rogêt
and
*The Purloined Letter.
