Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This marvelous recording has all the bells and whistles. Tasteful musical transitions set off three gifted narrators. The language is archaic, as when the hero of ‘The Murders in the Rue Morgue’ boasts that most men ‘wore windows in their bosoms,’ but enthusiastic narrations lure us into black places in the heart that seem not to have altered significantly since Poe’s time. The package ends with a brief biography. Poe’s actual life was almost as frightful as his imaginative one. These are not happy stories, but it is heartening that a man fascinated with the prospect of ‘The Premature Burial’ (1844) should still enthrall us today.” AudioFile
“Suitably macabre.” Booklist

He was first published in 1827 and then began a career as a magazine writer and editor and a sharp literary critic. In 1845 the publication of his most famous poem, “The Raven,” brought him national fame.
