A collection of classic works by Edgar Allan Poe, American author, poet, editor and literary critic. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.
This volume includes "Narrative of A. Gordon Pym", "Ligeia", "Morella", "A Tale pof the Ragged Mountains", "The Spectacles", "King Pest", and "Three Sundays in a Week".
Edgar Allen Poe's poems and stories of horror and mystery blend wit with the macabre. His inventive narratives and erudite use of language have delighted countless fans since his tragically short career ended in the early 19th century. Here is a selection of works from one of the most admired and entertaining American intellects.
Tim Habeger performs this third volume slowly, deliberately, and with resonance. It includes Poe's only novel, The Narrative of A. Gordyn Pym, detailing a young man's adventures at sea, as well as six short stories that will excite and amuse, with descriptions of undead wives, drug-induced states, mistaken identity, and drunken sailors.
