Publisher's Summary

American poet, critic, and short-story writer Edgar Allan Poe is universally recognized for his cultivation of the macabre in fiction. His stories are characterized by an original kind of supernatural horror, often using the awareness of death as a catalyzing force in its own right. His tales and poems brim with psychological depth and intense imagery, made vivid through his musical language and hypnotic rhythms, which are especially captivating when heard aloud. This special audio collection features some of Poe's best-known stories, including "The Tell Tale Heart", "Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar", "Hop Frog", "Murders in the Rue Morgue", "Masque of the Red Death", "The Pit and the Pendulum", "Fall of the House of Usher", "The Black Cat", and "The Cask of Amontillado".

Always a Delight

Poe is a true classic. This narrator brings something extraordinary to these already compelling stories. The intermission music was a nice touch, too. The narrator may not be what you’re expecting, but don’t give up on it; it’s truly a transcendent experience. Favorite: Masque of the Red Death.
