About this Item

Paperback. 34 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.1in.This early work by Edgar Allan Poe was originally published in 1839. Born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1809, Poe became an orphan at a very early age. After being taken in by a couple in Richmond, he spent a brief spell in the United Kingdom before returning to enrol at the University of Virginia. Poe struggled for many years to make a living as a writer and frequently had to move city to stay in employment as a critic. Even for his greatest success, The Raven, he only received 9 and, although becoming a household name, his financial position remained far from stable. Poe died in 1849, aged just 40, yet his legacy is a formidable one: He is seen today as one of the greatest practitioners of Gothic and detective fiction that ever lived, and popular culture is replete with references to him. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

About this title

Synopsis:

Edgar Allan Poe's short story, “The Fall of the House of Usher”, was originally published in 1839. One of his most famous and chilling tales, it is the story of an unnamed narrator who is compelled to visit his sickly friend, Roderick Usher. Upon arrival, the narrator realises that Roderick and his sister seem to be suffering from alarming symptoms, which Roderick attributes to house being alive. A gripping and veritably terrifying story, “The Fall of the House of Usher” will not disappoint fans of Poe's classic horror fiction. Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) was an American author, editor, poet, and critic. Most famous for his stories of mystery and horror, he was one of the first American short story writers, and is widely considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre. Many antiquarian books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

About the Author:

American short story writer, poet and critic, Poe's life is as well-known as his stories. With a short military career and a post as sub-editor, he wrote in different genres of literature. Famous the world over, his produced pieces are eloquent of his genius.
