EDGAR ALLAN POE, in his short, troubled life, originated the mystery story, brought new psychological depth to the tale of horror, and made inimitable contributions to Romantic poetry and literary criticism. Yet bad luck, pride, and a difficult temperament kept him in a lifelong struggle with poverty and illness. Born in Boston in 1809 to itinerant actors, Poe was orphaned as an infant and sent to live with a Richmond merchant, John Allan. Allan sent him to the University of Virginia in 1826, but Poe withdrew because of gambling debts.

Edgar Allan Poe’s stories are some of the most fascinating in the canon of American literature. Such classics as The Tell-Tale Heart are taught in schools all over the country and are loved by readers for the insight he offers into the paranoid mind. More than that, Poe’s intricate detail of the protagonist’s thought patterns make even the most insane-seeming character – truly a murderer – somehow relatable to the reader, even if those of us on the sane side would never consider such an act. Poe stands among the best of American storytellers.

Ask any person to invent a horror story... even if that person is not used to read instinctively will try to set a tone with Poe's voice... so deep is Poe in our minds.

I read Poe since kid, first in Spanish language, then when I decided to learn English an edition of his selected works by Penguin books and a dictionary was my master. Usually English writers in comparison to writers in other languages tend to be clean and direct; Poe, who was rich in many cultures and seems to have read books preferably in their original idiom and it shows: he has a unique style, not always easy but part of his special voice, he is not condescending with the reader so you have to grow to walk with him, because he has a vast culture.

These tales are worldwide famous so it would unnecessary to explain the plots and stories, enough to say that Poe's world is so amazing that sometimes you would like it to be the real one; there is the temptation to not see the real Maelström to save the disappointing of being not like Poe's Maelström. They are complex and evolve to extraordinary conclusions, you can read them many times and still finding more details. I adore how U.S. is a place of marvels and the old world is an exotic place; usually in Spanish language (except the genial Borges) the writers feel that their culture is European and they are here like visitors, instead Poe feels closer because his voice and heart is in his land, there is not nostalgia of other places: he is a truly genius creating something new.

Is interesting that apparently writers of his century thought little of him, those writers are being devoured by oblivion in archaic schools; instead Poe is so powerful, each little tale is so rich that pre-configures whole genres as science-fiction, horror, and detective stories as are known today; his essays materialize in music and architecture. Even more Poe is still present, as the voice that manifest our personal horrors is his.

This is an excellent book, but I was annoyed to discover that it's a paperback edition of a hardcover called "Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Death and Dementia," also illustrated by Grimly. So I bought the same book twice. Annoyed that it happened.

The heart the incessant beating of the heart..Okay this is a cool little toy. It is very tiny and you push a button and the heart starts beating. The problem with it is that it stopped working about a minute after I first pushed the button. It could be the battery died..I simply don't know. There looks like there is no conceivable way short of heart surgery to replace the battery. The thing will just not open unlike the Raven toy. That arrived with a dead battery. It does look pretty cool sitting on the bookshelf in front of a bunch of forgotten lore written by Poe..quoth the Raven nevermore.

You can't go wrong for the price. I got this collection of stories because it includes "The Black Cat" and I noticed it isn't in most that I've seen. Great quality and a good sized book. Great gift idea.

In high school, Poe was probably my favorite American author, and reading him again more than 40 years later, I am reminded why. Like any art, every time or generation has its style, and each has its strength. In Poe's day, the English language was more important to writers. Poe's writing is full of words you may never see elsewhere. You get the distinct feeling he loved words and he certainly knows how to put them together. His Dupin puts you in mind of Sherlock Holmes (Doyle mentions him in one of his stories, though his Holmes suggests Dupin is an amatuer by comparison). Poe worked hard on the details as you can tell by the adventure of Hans Pfaall, and writes technically well. At the same time, he succeeds in bringing characters to life and describes scenes to the point that you feel like you are there. When I read something like this I am reminded why they call them "classics" in the first place. Can't wait to do volume two and favorites like "The Raven" and "Fall of the House of Usher."

First, this isy favorite short story. Since receiving this, my kids (8-10) have asked me to read it to them several times. My only suggestion would be to make the beating of the heart more audible. You can get it but not really hear it. They hold it and pass it around, but a little sound would be nice, since it is the sound of the heart that is central to the story.

I am disappointed in that I had specifically sought The Gold Bug. I needed it for a reference. I have always enjoyed Poe' s ability to capture the reader's curiosity immediately and set the scene with rich details.
This book looks like it was printed from a home printer and the illustrations are a joke. Do not buy this book, such a let down because the cover looks very nice. Just go online and print it yourself.
