Tales


Author: Edgar Allan Poe
This single volume brings together all of Poe's stories and poems, and illuminates the diverse and multifaceted genius of one of the greatest and most influential figures in American literary history.

Quotes from the book:

"Years of love have been forgot, In the hatred of a minute."

"Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence– whether much that is glorious– whether all that is profound– does not spring from disease of thought– from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect."

"Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?"

Readers' reviews:

"Definitely not light reading, but perfect for the fall and winter. Very dark and poetic. Great stories, and each story is just short enough to maintain attention span. I recommend this to anyone who appreciates a challenging read." (Bailey Jane, goodreads.com)

"Edgar Allan Poe, is best known for the Raven, still the greatest and most famous American poem ever written." (Henry Avila, goodreads.com)

"Poe is, whatever you may have gleaned about him from cheap movies and comic book adaptations, a thoroughly top-notch writer in the Romantic tradition." (David, goodreads.com)
