Torture chambers. Premature burials. Spectral birds. Crumbling castles. Men gone mad by revenge. Women who return from the grave. These are the deranged fantasies and dark superstitions spun into masterpieces of terror by Edgar Allan Poe.

Best known for his poems and short fiction, Poe perfected the psychological thriller, invented the detective story, and transported readers to his own supernatural realm. Edgar Allan Poe: Poetry and Tales features the complete works of the author, including all of Poe’s most macabre short stories such as “The Fall of the House of Usher,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Masque of the Red Death,” as well as every poem of haunting genius like “The Raven,” “Annabel Lee” and “The Haunted Palace.” Together, these poems and tales reveal the extraordinary spectrum of Poe’s idealism, his visionary qualities, his responsiveness to beauty and love, and his fascination with the eerie and morbid.

Also included in these complete works are Politian, Poe’s only play; The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, Poe’s only complete novel; The Journal of Julius Rodman, Poe’s second unfinished novel; “The Light-House,” Poe’s last incomplete work; and several dozen articles and essays written by the author.

The edition includes over eighty pages of bonus content, including reproductions of 28 engravings by Gustave Doré for “The Raven” originally published in 1883, a Poe chronology, and four essays by Poe; “Letter to B———,” “The Philosophy of Composition,” “The Rationale of Verse,” and “The Poetic Principle.”

Edgar Allan Poe: Poetry and Tales features the most comprehensive and authoritative collection of Edgar Allan Poe’s work, edited Patrick F. Quinn. First published in 1984 by The Library of America, Quinn’s edition of Poe’s complete writings took extensive care to select an authoritative text of each work. The printing and publishing history of every item was thoroughly investigated in order to choose a version that incorporated all of Poe’s own revisions without reproducing errors or changes introduced by later editors. Upon publication, The New York Review of Books referred to it as, “the first truly dependable collection of Poe’s poetry and tales.”

One of the most important and influential American writers of the 19th century, Edgar Allan Poe’s disturbing, powerful and inventive voice continues to haunt and enthrall readers.

POE RE-IMAGINED

SUNTUP has once again brought it's "A" game via publishing what I feel is the definitive deluxe edition of Poe's writings. Every aspect of this lavish tome is impressive from it's stunning artwork, sublime end papers only adds to the overall value of this tribute to one of America's true originals.

A definitive edition

A love the binding, the illustrations, and the bonus material within. Definitely an edition for the ages no matter which one you get.
The one thing I would have changed is putting the Dore illustrations to match each stanza of “The Raven” giving it that book within a book feel but that would have added to the page count in an already voluminous and beautifully made book.

Hefty

The weight of this book is more than physical. It's a monument in American gothic fiction. It's a comprehensive display of written power. And its darkness is only matched by its beauty.
