Publisher Description

Jeffrey Combs gives an electrifying performance in “Nevermore, An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe”. Recorded before a live audience in Boston, Poe, with all of his passions, foibles, aspirations, and demons, comes vividly to life in this bravura, one-person play. Playwright Dennis Paoli expertly weaves Poe’s actual words, from letters and essays, with select poems and tales, and let’s Poe tell his own story. With Combs’ full-blooded performance, Poe is brought to exciting life - - imagine that you are in the audience listening to Poe give one of his famous lectures in 1848, and on display is Poe’s humor, sadness, genius, ego, and indomitable spirit! Director Stuart Gordon guides the proceedings with a gentle touch, revealing the humanity, the triumph and the tragedy, of America’s great poet and teller-of-tales, Edgar Allan Poe.

About the Author

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.
