About the Author

Born January 19, 1809, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S. American short-story writer, poet, critic, and editor Edgar Allan Poe's tales of mystery and horror initiated the modern detective story, and the atmosphere in his tales of horror is unrivaled in American fiction. His The Raven numbers among the best-known poems in national literature. With his short stories and poems, Edgar Allan Poe captured the imagination and interest of readers around the world. His creative talents led to the beginning of different literary genres, earning him the nickname 'Father of the Detective Story' among other distinctions. His life, however, has become a bit of mystery itself. And the lines between fact and fiction have been blurred substantially since his death.

Comments about The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe:

While some of his work, particularly the detective stories, lack truly well established concepts (realistic crime description/mystery-solving), when it come to psychological horror and the terrors of the mind, Poe is masterly.
