I bought this today from Dymocks (for 3 bucks!!! ) and I got into it as soon as I got home. I had always found Poe interesting, but having only read 'The Raven' and 'Annabel Lee', I had only seen a glimpse at his talent. This book has heightened my love for this POEt (see what I did there), and the selection is brilliant. I thoroughly recommend it! His understanding and passion of life, death and love, serves as a motif in his poetry. I think that poems that are raw and honest are truly worth re ...more
I was familiar with Poe's tales, but only knew the odd poem, like 'Annabel Lee', which was used in the film, 'Play Misty For Me'. This cheap edition caught my eye and also contains a chronology about Poe and American history. What a revelation! I adore his poetry! His passions, loves and observations are for all to enjoy and see. I realised that some of lines from 'The Raven' are used in 'The Crow'. I love his use of words. Sheer delight! A very good, short, pocket-sized collection of his poems. ...more
Poe has always been, and always will be, one of my favorite poets of all time. Not only is he my first poet, but has also introduced to others and poetry in general. I would never have discovered my love for poetry without him!

He was a wonderfull poet and a man with a very deep soul. It's my tragedy that I cannot find a man like that in my life.

I finished it hoping that it would get better and just to experience Poe's poetry. There were only 3-4 poems that I would even think of reading again. Planning to try his short stories next...

I didn't like all of these, but the excellent ones, such as The Bells and Annabel Lee, always make me shiver happily.

The name Poe brings to mind images of murderers and madmen, premature burials, and mysterious women who return from the dead. His works have been in print since 1827 and include such literary classics as “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Raven,” and “The Fall of the House of Usher.” This versatile writer’s oeuvre includes short stories, poetry, a novel, a textbook, a book of scientific theory, and hundr ...more

“Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore —
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.”
“You call it hope — that fire of fire!
It is but agony of desire.”
