Quoth the Raven, "NEVERMORE!"
Awww...I can tell this is one of my students. I am so proud of that! :)
...and he's your pet no doubt, isn't he miss g?
I don't own this particular book but i have always appreciated Poe's work. He also appealed to my then 13 year old son's sense of the fantastic and quirky...wonderful use of words.I remember one day i read out lout to my son the "The Bells" while he weeded my rose garden!!! What a sweet memory!
I am primarily a short story writer. Poe is one of the first short story writers. I'm sure he isn't really the first, but he definitely made a style of it.
Pretty sure short stories go back much further than that. He didn't invent something new, but he definitely had a style all his own.
The only thing I kept from my husband's ex grilfriend Pretty much the only useful or good thing about the women
I love Edgar Allan Poe! He's so unique in his intriguing writing style. Very cool, and really an awesome writer (some stuff is odd, but that makes it all the better!)
Edgar Allan Poe, in my opinion, is one of the few people who can make red not just red, but crimson red. Example: He takes revenge and instead of "serving it on a cold dish", he brings the hatred, reason, and bitterness of true revenge out and shows to the reader its vileness and ruthlessness.
Not much I can add about Edgar Allan Poe. This particular edition is a perfect collection of Poe's works. The only drawback, is it is too large and heavy to take with you underways. It's for reading in bed on a stormy night. Beside the famous stories that most people know of, there are countless monographs and articles that do not fail to astonish in their insight and brilliance, even today. It's a special delight to discover the Dupin stories, who later became the protoype for Sherlock Holmes. Poe is very modern, even in the 21st century.
i find this book very interesting and gory i would defiantly recommend it
This author is genius!! I love it!
I have the softcover edition of this but one of the reasons I bought the leather-bound edition is more fore looks than anything. My boyfriend and I love books so having books to read but at the same time to put up for decoration.
