The undisputed pioneer of the horror, detective and science-fiction genres, Edgar Allan Poe was just as influential as a poet as he is now a celebrated writer of short stories. The present edition contains a large selection of his works in verse, from those he published during his lifetime - such as his famous ballads 'The Raven' and 'Lenore' - to those that were collected immediately after his premature death in 1849, including the ones he wrote in his youth.
Also included in this volume is a selection of Poe's essays on poetical composition and prosody, revealing that poetry was at the core of the American master's vision of literature - something also demonstrated by the accomplished productions and enduring legacy he has left behind in this field.
