Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?” This is a collection of Edgar Allan Poe’s greatest and most spine-chilling writings that have become classics and are must-read for anyone who loves a good scare. Included in this edition are some of poems masterpieces of macabre fiction and poetry, such as, ‘the murders in Rue morgue’, ‘the pit and the pendulum’, ‘the Raven’, ‘Annabel lee’—writings that capture a world filled with tragic events and horrifying experiences, a world where the dead do not remain dead for long—along with some of poems finest essays and memorable letters. About the Author One of the most Gothic short story writers of the nineteenth century, Edgar Allan Poe was a predominant figure of the Romantic movement in American literature and is regarded as the inventor of the detective story. His literary career began with Tamerlane and Other Poems (1827) but it was his deftly plotted short stories which attracted attention. He was also a noticeable literary critic and an unwearying reviewer and essayist. The recurring themes in his works—the death of women, bereavement, horror, madness, premature burial, decay, revival of the dead, life after death—are suggested to have resulted from his own life, which was a sequence of tragic events and frequent abandonments. Poe skillfully weaved these themes into his meticulous plots and created the macabre world of terror and dark romanticism bringing alive the horror through his choice of words. More than a century and a half after Poe’s death, his works still remain as fresh and scary, sending a frightening chill down the spines of his readers.
