Edgar Allan Poe's Complete Poetical Works

Edgar Allan Poe

Book Overview: 

Edgar Allan Poe is widely famed as one of the greatest writers of all time. He is best known for his works of horror, such as “The Tell Tale Heart.” However, and this is less known, Poe also wrote many love poems. In this collection of forty-eight poems by Edgar Allan Poe we will go through a wide variety of themes, from horror and raw creepiness in “The Raven” to pure love in “A Valentine” to depression in “Alone.” Throughout all of his poems Poe kept a very strong meter and rhyme scheme. This is most obvious in “The Bells.”

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Eulalie
I dwelt alone
In a world of moan,
And my soul was a stagnant tide,
Till the fair and gentle Eulalie became my blushing bride—
Till the yellow-haired young Eulalie became my smiling bride.
Ah, less—less bright
The stars of the night
Than the eyes of the radiant girl!
And never a flake
That the vapor can make
With the moon-tints of purple and pearl,
Can vie with the modest Eulalie's most unregarded curl—
Can compare with the bright-eyed Eulalie's most humble and careless curl.
Now Doubt—now Pain
Come never again,
For her soul gives me sigh for sigh,
And all day long
Shines, bright and strong,
Astart. . . Read More

I’ve been reading this book for almost three years and it feels so good to finally have finished it!

I was surprised by what I found in here. Poe was slightly different to what I thought. He is very much shrouded in shadow and the macabre, at least, his more successful stories and poems were. But th

Edgar Allan Poe’s stories are the tales told by the raven on the longest winter night long after midnight…
Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore;
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he

Edgar Allan Poe is one of the OG's when it comes to macabre literature. His name alone screams angst.

I heed not that my earthly lot
Hath-little of Earth in it-
That years of love have been forgot
In the hatred of a minute:
I mourn not that the desolate
Are happier, sweet, than I,
But that you sorro

I really enjoyed these creepy, gothic, and thrilling short stories. Edgar Allan Poe really was original and ahead of his time in writing. The storytelling and his ability to paint a picture with words is fantastic. These stories are tales of tragedy, woe, despair, and typically do not end well. All

I've reviewed the tales I read by their individual titles, and I won't repeat my reviews here. Let me just say that Poe is an under-appreciated master. Not just under-appreciated by many readers today, for whom he's synonymous with being a sort of proto-schlock-horror writer, but under-appreciated b

How could I not love this book? Shortly after reading Poe's complete works as a teenager, my family was transferred to Fort Monroe in southern Virginia. While waiting for permanent housing, I ended up staying in the house (and the very bedroom) that Poe had been in while he served on the base. Pulli
