“The Oblong Box,” which was first published in 1844 concerns a sea voyage and a mysterious box taken aboard the ship. “It was about six feet in length by two and a half in breadth.” The owner of the box begins acting very strangely and refuses to say what is in the box. As the ship passes Cape Hatteras, it is caught in a hurricane and the terrible truth about the box is finally revealed. A vintage Poe story.

    " Poe is so macabre. And brilliant. The illustrations in this are very vibrant. They kind of feel like an assault on my eyes. Not my cup of tea, but they fit Poe's work really well, I think. "

    " They are very astmospheric, moody stories. A fun read if you don't linger in that place. "

    " 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. "
