Explore the transcendent world of unity and ultimate beauty in Edgar Allan Poe’s verse in this complete collection.
Although best known for his short stories, Edgar Allan Poe was by nature and choice a poet. From his exquisite lyric “To Helen,” to his immortal masterpieces, “Annabel Lee,” “The Bells,” and “The Raven,” Poe stands beside the celebrated English romantic poets Shelley, Byron, and Keats, and his haunting, sensuous poetic vision profoundly influenced the Victorian giants Swinburne, Tennyson, and Rossetti.
Today his dark side speaks eloquently to contemporary readers in poems such as “...
Read throughout the world, admired by Dostoyevsky and translated by Baudelaire, Edgar Allan Poe has become a legendary figure, representing the artist as obsessed outcast and romantic failure. His nightmarish visions, shaped by cool artistic calculation, reveal some of the dark possibilities of human experience.

In this complete and uniquely authoritative Library of America collection, well-known tales...

In Edgar Allan Poe’s most renowned tale, “The Raven,” a grieving man’s exchange with the eponymous Raven exposes us to the duality of grief and the tension between the desire to forget and the need to remember. Their repetitive conversation is reflected in Poe’s strict rhyme scheme and highlights the obsessive indulgence (or perverse pleasure) in the feeling of loss. With chilling language and an eerie musical style, Poe crafts a tale of grief and madness so vivid you’ll be haunted by faint whispers of “Nevermore” long after the final lines are read.
Is this poetry? Math? A brainteaser? Yes! It’s all that and more. The poet J. Patrick Lewis
has reimagined classic poems—such as Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” and Langston
Hughes’s “April Rain Song”—and added a dash of math. Between the silly parodies

treat for fans of wor
