I loved Poe in high school and enjoyed getting reacquainted during my library's Big Read 2011. (I was on the speech team in high school and read The Tell-Tale Heart and The Bells as part of my repertoire.) His stories and poems are downright disturbing and the best of them stick with you a long time. ("True! nervous, very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why WILL you say that I am mad?") I gave this book Four Stars only because it contains some of his less compelling works as well as his great stories and poems. Poe was truly an original.
