Inhaltsangabe:

Esteemed as a literary critic and poet, Edgar Allan Poe was most highly acclaimed for his tales and sketches. He transformed the short story from anecdote to art, virtually created the detective story, and perfected the psychological thriller. This volume is the first of two, edited by the consummate Poe scholar Thomas Ollive Mabbott, collecting all the tales of this master of the uncanny, the unnerving, and the terrifying. Poe's stories reflect his professed method of 'writing as if the author were firmly impressed with the truth, yet astonished at the immensity of the wonders he related'. Marrying grotesque inventiveness with superb plot construction, Poe's strikingly original tales often use only one main character and one main incident.In many of them, horror and suspense, revenge and torture, are laced with hilarious satire. Each volume is enriched with Mabbott's detailed and authoritative notes on sources, the history and collation of all known texts authorized by Poe, and variants of Poe's 'final' version. Volume 1 includes Poe's earliest parodies, beginning in 1831, and gathers his gothic tales written through 1842. The stories collected in this volume include "Ms. Found in a Bottle," the horrific "Berenice," "Ligeia" (which Poe considered his finest tale), "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," and one of his most famous stories, "The Fall of the House of Usher". Promising spine-tingling delights and sleepless nights, this annotated edition of "Tales and Sketches" is a treasure trove for scholars and general readers alike, confirming Poe's status as one of literary art's 'most brilliant but erratic stars'.
