We will not be reading Poe's entire works...that would be crazy insane! But it will be a number of his most popular and some obscure. This book of "Selected Tales" encompasses a wide range of his work. All in all this book totals about 400 pages.
"Since their first publication in the 1830s and 1840s, Edgar Allan Poe's
extraordinary Gothic tales have established themselves as classics of horror
fiction and have also created many of the conventions which still dominate the
genre of detective fiction. As well as being highly enjoyable, Poe's tales are
works of very real intellectual exploration. Attentive to the historical and
political dimensions of these very American tales, this new selection places the
most popular - "The Fall of the House of Usher", "The Masque of the Red Death",
"The Murders in the Rue Morgue"; and "The Purloined Letter" - alongside less
well-known travel narratives, metaphysical essays and political satires."
