Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Each is a root from which a whole literature has developed…Where was the detective story until Poe breathed the breath of life into it?” Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, praise for the author’s detective stories
“Poe constantly and inevitably produced magic where his greatest contemporaries produced only beauty.” George Bernard Shaw, praise for the author
“Certain of Poe’s tales possess an almost absolute perfection of artistic form which makes them veritable beacon lights in the province of the short story…Poe’s weird tales are alive in a manner that few others can ever hope to be.” H. P. Lovecraft, praise for the author
