      " A veritable classic! "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Asa | 7/11/2013

      " The way I feel about Poe's writing is that he has good ideas, but they way he tells his stories doesn't really work for me and most of his poetry is a bit too much. There's too many words to tell one thing, too much exposition and not enough happening, and too much telling and not enough showing. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikhael | 1/25/2013

      " remind me to upload some images of this book. It's a collection of Poe stories, but illustrated like a cheesy romance novel for no apparent reason. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ima | 12/20/2012

      " Not this particular version, and not every tale yet, but close. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 11/12/2012

      " I read this in a comp lit class in college and finally got why people revered Poe "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amora | 10/13/2012

      " He told the tales that were too scary for everyone else. I love it! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cai | 9/3/2012

      " Of course, i love anything edgar allen poe, my favorite, i cant find it here, is the complete tales and poems love it! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 6/27/2012

      " I'm a Poe fan. I don't know what it is, I just really like him. I enjoy finding patterns throughout his short stories and as creepy as some are, I just really like them. This is a good collection that I keep on my bookshelf. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Birgitta Gustafson | 6/14/2012

      " This is a beautiful edition with wonderful illustrations. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marts (Thinker) | 5/28/2012

      " Great collections of Poe's stories and poems "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 2/6/2012

      " I read the poems, but not the stories. I enjoyed the creepy poems though. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 10/28/2011

      " I love Poe! What more can I say? "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lili | 8/29/2011

      " Dark, dreary, mysterious but wholly magical. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Domin | 3/26/2011

      " I've got to get my own volume of Poe. This one's lovely to read, but it's so old I'm afraid of damaging the pages. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 3/11/2011

      " As far as I will go when it comes to reading horror. I love Poe. He lived such a sad yet fascinating life, it's interesting to me to read his works and see a product of such a life he lived. "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sam | 11/30/2010

      " Some good stuff in there; mostly a lot of second-rate stuff (in my opinion). I learned from reading this book that I don't much care for Poe. More power to those who do. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 10/6/2010

      " So many books I've read lately referred to Poe that I felt I ought to re-read some of the short stories. In the end, I've opted for three stars, as the good ones are really good, and for the most part balance out the stories which grabbed me less. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosalía | 7/30/2010

      " Poe was a HUGE influence in my writing short fiction. His tales are brilliant and psychologically chilling. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alessandro | 3/8/2010

      " It doesn't get any better than this, folks. Edgar Allan Poe is the unchallenged master of horror and what got me into reading books. His short stories always deliver and are imbued with a unique horror aura. The stuff of legends, ladies and gentlemens.
      "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurinda | 1/11/2010

      " I really hate Poe. I'm only reading this because I have to. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor | 1/11/2010

      " I think this book is really good! I recomend everyone to read this if the are interested into the life of Edgar Allen Poe. He is a really creppy person but his stories have a way of pulling me in and keep me reading. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Damon | 8/12/2009

      " This book is decent ... I read the English edition... They only thing lacking is his amazing collection of poems... this was a poet who was very deep and dark at times but the short stories only show his lighter side.. But great work to say the least.. "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sean | 1/14/2009

      " Many of the stories in this collection tend towards the monotonous and dull. There are the odd one or two which are engaging but overall the writing comes across as laboured and grinding. A great little dust collector, this one. "

    About the Author
    Author Edgar Allan Poe

    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1848) transformed the American literary landscape with his innovations in the short story genre and his haunting lyrical poetry, and he is credited with inventing American gothic horror and detective fiction. He was first published in 1827 and then began a career as a magazine writer and editor and a sharp literary critic. In 1845 the publication of his most famous poem, “The Raven,” brought him national fame.
