A Great collection of Poe's Imagination
on 19 April 2017
This is a great edition of some of Poe's most imaginative stories; arranged in a great thematic order and accompanied with a good set of endnotes.
If you've never read any Poe before, this Wordsworth edition is a great place to start. Do note, this is a collection of some of his short stories, not his poetry. As such it does not contain his famous poem, *The Raven*, despite the inclination given by the cover image.
I don't know what it is exactly, but the scenery Poe paints with his prose has an incredible way of sticking in the brain. You'll find yourself walking the corridors of these visions long after you've put the words down.
These are short stories which perfectly display how impotent the modern novel is.
---Tristan Sherwin, author of *Love: Expressed*
