Collins Classics - the Selected Works of Edgar Allan Poe

Author(s): Edgar Allen Poe

FICTION

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'True! Nervous, very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses, not destroyed, not dulled them.' This ultimate collection of the infamous author's works includes 'The Raven', 'The Fall of the House of Usher' and 'The Tell-Tale Heart'. They focus on the internal conflict of individuals, the power of the dead over the living, and psychological explorations of darker human emotion. An American writer of fantastical, bizarre and sometimes disturbing short stories, Poe wrote in the first half of the nineteenth century. Preoccupied with delving into the darker reaches of the human psyche, Poe is inventor of the detective story and master of the macabre.
