About Book

I am forced here to eco the thoughts and feelings of several other reviewers here, “what can you say? It’s Poe.” To do a critical analysis of this work, in particular by a non-Poe scholar such is myself, would be the height of arrogance on my part; pontificating on a subject of which so many, many others are more qualified would come across as, well…pompous and in many ways laughable. I seriously doubt if I could come up with bits of criticism or accolades others have not been hammering away at for the past one hundred years or so. Poe though is one of my favorite short story authors and indeed, one of my favorite poets. I have been reading him for well over fifty years now and his work is as bright and fresh to me now as when it was first read to me as a child. There are a few things to note though, and a couple of comments the reader needs to be aware of concerning this particular edition. First, this work has not been annotated nor has it been translated (French). I note that on this site and several others that this has thrown some into a hissy fit state. Good grief! This lack of translation does not distract from the story a bit. In addition, with the most simplest of computers it only takes a snap or two on the mouse to come up with the translation of not only French, but just about any other language you might come across…stop being so lazy! Having to research it yourself is the best way to learn! If you have problems understanding what he is writing of; again, there are literally thousands of sites that would love a visit from you…many of them are quite good! No computer? Not problem! They actually have books at your local library with the same information in them! Secondly, I have noted that on this site and several others that there seems to be a bit of whining about Poe’s vocabulary, i.e. he uses “big words.” Folks, if you read 90 percent of the popular fiction books being cranked out today and pay very, very close attention, you will find that they have been dumbed down

Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan PoeAuthor, poet, and literary critic, Edgar Allan Poe is credited with pioneering the short story genre, inventing detective fiction, and contributing to the development of science fiction. However, Poe is best known for his works of the macabre, including such infamous titles as The Raven, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, Lenore, and The Fall of the House of Usher. Part of the American Romantic Movement, Poe was one of the first writers to make his living exclusively through his writing, working for literary journals and becoming known as a literary critic. His works have been widely adapted in film. Edgar Allan Poe died of a mysterious illness in 1849 at the age of 40.
