Book Description Random House USA Inc, United States, 1987. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 204 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Edgar Allan Poe was one of the most original writers in the history of American letters, a genius who was tragically misunderstood in his lifetime. He was a seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, and exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, and Charles Baudelaire, who championed him long before Poe was appreciated in his own country. Baudelaire s enthusiasm brought Poe a wide audience in Europe, and his writing came to have enormous importance for modern French literature. This edition includes his most well-known works-- The Raven, The Pit and the Pendulum, Annabel Lee, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Murders in the Rue Morgue --as well as less-familiar stories, poems, and essays.
