    About Author

    1. Edgar Allan Poe Philip Pullman says:
      The name Poe brings to mind images of murderers and madmen, premature burials, and mysterious women who return from the dead His works have been in print since 1827 and include such literary classics as The Tell Tale Heart, The Raven, and The Fall of the House of Usher This versatile writer s oeuvre includes short stories, poetry, a novel, a textbook, a book of scientific theory, and hundreds of essays and book reviews He is widely acknowledged as the inventor of the modern detective story and an innovator in the science fiction genre, but he made his living as America s first great literary critic and theoretician Poe s reputation today rests primarily on his tales of terror as well as on his haunting lyric poetry.Just as the bizarre characters in Poe s stories have captured the public imagination so too has Poe himself He is seen as a morbid, mysterious figure lurking in the shadows of moonlit cemeteries or crumbling castles This is the Poe of legend But much of what we know about Poe is wrong, the product of a biography written by one of his enemies in an attempt to defame the author s name.The real Poe was born to traveling actors in Boston on January 19, 1809 Edgar was the second of three children His other brother William Henry Leonard Poe would also become a poet before his early death, and Poe s sister Rosalie Poe would grow up to teach penmanship at a Richmond girls school Within three years of Poe s birth both of his parents had died, and he was taken in by the wealthy tobacco merchant John Allan and his wife Frances Valentine Allan in Richmond, Virginia while Poe s siblings went to live with other families Mr Allan would rear Poe to be a businessman and a Virginia gentleman, but Poe had dreams of being a writer in emulation of his childhood hero the British poet Lord Byron Early poetic verses found written in a young Poe s handwriting on the backs of Allan s ledger sheets reveal how little interest Poe had in the tobacco business.For information, please see enpedia wiki Edgar_al

      Be nothing which thou art not.Overview 4 5 starsI don t read much of any poetry Apart from poems I ve read for school way back when , this is my first book of poetry I ve ever read I will be reading poetry from now on as I thoroughly enjoyed this Poe is well known for the Raven, which everyone has heard at some point Even the Simpsons recited it during a tree house of horror episode His other works are also brilliant There are, of course, a few misses but for the most part everything is great.T [...]

      Not wild about poetry, not wild about horror but I love, love love these poems I m becoming a big Edgar Allan Poe fan completely by accident.

    4. Bob says:
      I haven t read many collections of poetry, or single poems for that matter It is not something I gravitate to in my normal course of reading I just don t know how to embrace poetry Maybe it was a poor high school education that contributed to my utter lack of understanding things like meter, rhythm, iambic pentameter, and all that goes into creating a poem For me enjoying a poem has always been an impulse or gut reaction, either the poem is instantly OK or it s not The memorability of a poem is [...]


    5. Evelyn (devours and digests words) says:
      Some poems are really hard for me to understand unless I sit down, reread the lines twice and think hard Though there are some that are beautifully haunting and sad My favourite poems by him are the ones about his lost loves, those are the ones I delved into and got lost in For one thing, Poe sure had an uncanny ability to depict pain and suffering Hell, it seem to seep through the pages It s obvious this man wrote with passion and feeling.

    6. Andrew Munroe says:
      I didn t like this book one because I don t like poems and second the plot lines for the poems were all mixed up and confusing.

    7. Our Library Mornington says:
      First published in the New York Evening Mirror in 1845, The Raven, is perhaps one of Poe s most well known poems.A talking raven visits a man tormented by the loss of his love, the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore The Raven perches upon the man s chamber door and foretells he will never be reunited with his love, not even in death With each refrain of never the protagonist becomes and agitated until he finally succumbs to madness And the raven, never flitting, still is sitt [...]

    8. Sarah W. says:
      I thought this book was okay It was a good, short book to read This book is definitely not my favorite poetry book that I have read before, but it was an okay book.

    9. Sara says:
      What a joy to revisit the poems of Edgar Allan Poe with a group of readers who brought to them thoughts and ideas that enhanced the reading I love Poe s grasp of mythology, his use of rhyme and rhythm, alliteration, and, yes, even his morose musings He seems to me to lay a tortured soul in front of us and ask, What would you do with this What could you do with it, but mourn I have written individual reviews for The Raven, The Bells and Annabel Lee I will not revisit them here, but I would like t [...]

    10. Soulmuser says:
      Edgar Allan Poe was my faithful companion back in 1990s How many of his stories I devoured again and again The Tell Tale Heart still reverberates in my memory This set of poems in a lovely, illustrated edition by Peter Pauper contains haunting verse macabre and spooky The Raven remains one of my favorite poems ever, and there are other classics such as A Dream Within A Dream Which also is one of my favorite songs and Annabel Lee One for the collector in you, this is a delight.

    11. Billierosie Billierosie says:
      Published in January, 1845, The Raven , by Edgar Allan Poe, is a poem, a lament, telling of loss, isolation, and loneliness The opening lines identify the speaker as someone who feels tired and weak but is still awake in the middle of a gloomy night He passes the time by reading a strange book of ancient knowledge Poe uses alliteration to convey the effect of unsteadiness This line also sets the poem s rhythmical pattern and provides the first example of the use of internal rhyme in dreary and w [...]

    12. Roy Huff says:
      Once upon a midnight dreary I love Poe How could anyone not I loved it so much, I memorized it I ve forgotten most of it since then, but it compelled me to take it to heart Dark yet enchanting, Poe has a way of drawing the reader it It lacks the gore of modern horror and suspense but is much effective and endearing This is a schoolyard classic, and if you haven t read it you are missing out Pick this up now and read it I can still hear the words in my head being spoken in a spooky manner This i [...]

    13. Indi Martin says:
      Edgar Allen Poe was my first love as a emo high school goth, thick with black eyeliner and heavy stares, convinced my deep green eyes saw the world deeper and completely than any of my peers In other words, High Goth, standard cookie cut individualism I still wear black eyeliner, it s the one habit I ve never been able to break Musically, I highly recommend Alan Parson s Tales of Mystery and Imagination as an excellent companion piece Favorite tales of mine were Dr Tarr and Professor Feather, T [...]

      best advice is reading it aloud suitable for rainy days with a cup of hot coffee

    15. A.D. Crystal says:
      EDGAR ALAN POEThe RAPPER POET of the 19th century 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 But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door Perched, and sat, and nothing .

    16. Colin says:
      BOOK REVIEW 2 The raven , is an INCREDIBLE 89 page book that is very well worded Its so well written you can feel the emotion in the words as you read Edgar Allen Poe is an american writer who is very famous for his stories of horror,and mystery such as the book, The raven and The fall of the house of usher The poems are amazing and each have a unique story to tell The two poems that I felt impacted me the most were, Alone and, A dream within a dream Alone , was a very sad story that touched me [...]

    17. Lynn Beyrouthy says:
      Not the first time I dislike a book with high ratings on The Fault in our Stars for instance , and surely not the first time I find myself unimpressed by an acclaimed and famous classical author Franz Kafka for example But I really believed I d appreciate Poe s work since it is anchored in a nineteenth century macabre atmosphere and since he led a dandy life, much like my beloved Baudelaire However, with the exception of The Raven and Anabel Lee that undisputably deserve a five star rating, his [...]

    18. Jill says:
      I have never particularly liked poetry especially rhyming poetry, which often comes out seeming trite The Raven in particular is a masterpiece It doesn t feel like Poe was even searching for a rhyme, but that it just fell into place His repetition of words gives a creepy, rhythmic feel to the poem and while reading it, you almost forget altogether that it is in fact a poem, since you re caught up in its narrative.

    19. Che Hypatia (Alanoud) says:
      O God can I not saveOne from the pitiless wave Is all that we see or seemBut a dream within a dream

      I love Poe and can t think of a better author to read in October He has some creepy stuff It s fantastic

    21. n. sadel says:
      The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven John Milton, Paradise Lost.The poem For Annie is about a laudanum addict who, once again, obtains his heavenly vision Annie It is written in the present tense The addict is thinking He is not speaking to anyone The poem begins with the narrator already having ingested the laudanum This can be understood by moving the sixth stanza to the beginning oh of all tortures that torture the worst has abated subsided the [...]

      My English teacher asked for my favorite poem at school And, I gave her this book

    23. Jen says:
      Finally finished Of the last 3 poems Eldorado was my favourite, I ve had it memorised for a long time It s short and doesn t have some of the beauty of Poe s other works but I like the story and the galloping rhythm I think the moral of the story is fairly clear you can search and search for paradise in life but will only find it truely in death

    24. Jonah says:
      bestok.everG the poem was sooo inspiring I m going to write a poem based on the raven,but with a snake instead.

    25. Jack Marryatt says:
      I do not like poetry, not in the slightest, I only read this book because it was required of me I don t have much to say rather than I do like creepiness of his poems, my favorite was probably The Raven.

    26. Max says:
      I really liked the poems in this book But I did not like it all being in a book format When I read poems I like to read them slow and not keep reading a ton of them at a time Especially when they are poems by Edgar Allan Poe which are poems that you have to rap your head around.

    27. Dzemo Sh says:
      This is the first book of poetry I ve read, and even though I liked it, I had some difficulties understanding some of the poems right on my first try reading them But after rereading them a couple of times, I could understand the meaning better and truly liked, even loved some of them Edgar Allan Poe is said to have been a little bit of a nut job and maybe even crazy, and even though it is somewhat true, it s undeniable he possesses a rare brilliance in his writing The way he conveys emotions an [...]
