The MavenOnce, in summer, weary, I wanted to discuss a theory,And so walked up to the classroom of my teacher, Lenore.I started gently wrapping, wondering if the she wasn’t napping, And then I heard the tapping of her feet across the floor;The tap, tap, tap of high-heeled shoes across the floor—And there stood my Lenore“Oh, hello there,” she said yawning as I said to her “Good morning.I have something I’d like to discuss with you, my dear Lenore.”“Well sit down,” she said and w [...]

Ok, so I guess I'm taking a break from this. I managed to read half of it, and I guess I'll resume it in a year or so, when the mood returns. I can only say that I really liked what I've read so far. Poe is pretty fucked up in the head and I admire him for that.

Poe is such an October mood/aesthetic. He is October personified.

This has taken me years to finish. I found Poe to be a little to intense to read for weeks at a time. I started in in High School, forgot it for the first three years of College, and now I'm done.One thing that I loved about Poe was the intensity and immersion he creates. I've never read a book or story before where I almost dreaded turning the page because I was afraid.However, last story of this book was what nearly stopped me from finishing. The story was over 20 chapters long, and you would [...]

Why it has felt like many lustra have passed since I first hearkened of this collection-of which occurrence I am most pleased- and, through chronological excavation, I, your narrator, at this epoch of writing, have finally reached a conclusion! And yet, for a while, I saw only a tinkering of adjectival madness but, luckily, a faithful thesaurus was at hand to do my bidding and now, at this current time, if only you could see the lustre of my eyes as I reminisce of reading those foregone pages-oh [...]

I finally finished this collection of Edgar Allan Poe's Poems, Tales, and his one and only novel The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym. Overall, I only found the poems worthwhile. This book had about 15 of his poems, and I found that I enjoyed them more than the tales and the novel at the end. Poe's tales I can only describe as "merely interesting". There are some clever stories like the Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Tell-Tale Heart, and Thou Art the Man, to name a [...]

Feb 14 2010. I just re-read "The Tell-Tale Heart" for the first time since high school. I took American lit in 11th grade, which would have been 89-90, so it's been 20 years since I read this story. It's one that's always stayed with me, although as a much more mature reader now than at 16, I find the pacing too rapid. I'd like it better if it came to a slower boil, but I suppose that's a matter of taste. But I do appreciate that what Poe did with the unreliable narrator and the use of psycholog [...]

An essential collection would have to include the only novel Poe wrote, -The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym-. Brutish read. Have tried several times. No good. Not the fault of the collector and publisher.I have to rate the collection. Enjoyed a large majority of the other stories, not only my usual favorietes, but particularly "King Pest". Because I so enjoyed some new favorite Poe stories and would not have found them otherwise, or unlikey, I will rate this collection 3 stars.

I read the horror tales with which I was already familiar: Berenice, Morella, Ligeia, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Masque of the Red Death, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Premature Burial, and The Cask of Amontillado. Berenice is definitely the best one, but overall a good creepy time.

Its a slow read and you must have a dictionary by your side. I've read not quite half, and I have to say that Poe is one of my favorite authors.

UPDATED: 4/17/2015, 4/18/2015, 4/19/2015, 4/20/2015Anytime I have said 7th grade, it was really 8th gradeNALLY. I HAVE DONE IT. I HAVE FINISHED. I KNOW. I SPENT THREE-FOUR MONTHS ON THIS THING, AND IT'S NOT EVEN THE WHOLE COLLECTION!!!I decided to write notes and give stars to each and every poem and story contained within this book. Those will be typed up later. It's later. Literally minutes later.I started reading Edgar Allan Poe's poems in early January while reading A Series of Unfortunate E [...]

It really is a pity the stories aren't rated individually, because the second half of the collection of stories was superb. The first half seemed rather incomplete, like Poe got bored writing them and hastily concluded them. As for the poems, I did not care for most of them. My favorite poem from the collection, "The Raven", seemed to be written in an entirely different way than the other poems. Altogether, I highly recommend this work. It contains a little bit of many things - not only poetry a [...]

Por razones de la escuela, (y flojera también xD), no leí todos los libros por la tanto solo podré dar una review de los cuentos que leíLos asesinatos de la Rue Morgue2 estrellasEl escarabajo de oro3,5 estrellasEl entierro Prematuro4,5 estrellasEl pozo y el péndulo3,5 estrellasLigeia5 estrellasBerenice3,5 estrellasPromedio: 3,6Calificación final: 4 estrellas

Reading Poe is a decadent passion I have had for quiet some time. Therefore, my rating would likely be skewed. I believe he is a great thinker and could write to others that have not had a "perfect" life. Thank you, Edgar Allen Poe for giving of yourself to make humanity feel as though they are not alone
