The Complete Poetry of Edgar Allan Poe - From the author of The Tell-Tale Heart, The Pit and the Pendulum, and The Murders in the Rue Morgue . . . Although best known for his short stories, Edgar Allan Poe was by nature and choice a poet. This edition of his complete poetry illustrates the transcendent world of unity and ultimate beauty he created in his verse. 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 his poems, such as The Haunted Palace and The Conqueror Worm, with their powerful images of madness and the macabre. But even at the end of his life, Poe reached out to his art for comfort and courage, giving us in Eldorado a talisman to hold during our darkest moments a timeless gift from an American writer.
