Summary
The complete stories by the master who influenced French symbolism, Freudian analysis, and Hollywood movies, includes his well-known tales of suspense and macabre as well as his lesser-known stories
Amazon.com description: Product Description:


Edgar Allan Poe’s gift for the macabre–his genius in finding the strangeness lurking at the heart of things–was so extraordinary that he exerted a major influence on Baudelaire and French symbolism, on Freudian analysis, and also on the detective novel and the Hollywood movie. His psychologically profound stories of encounters with the marvelous, the uncanny, and the dreadful represent–in contrast to the optimism of writers like Emerson and Whitman–the other, darker side of the nineteenth-century American sensibility.
