Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Edgar Allan Poe is one of the indisputable greats of American literature. Part of the American Romantic movement, his horror stories are known the world over and have become classics. Meanwhile, stories like The Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Mystery of Marie Roget helped found the detective novel genre, that would later come into its own with the likes of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, half a century later.

This fabulous collection comprises 69 short stories -- absolutely all of the stories Poe is known to have written. It includes a forward, notes to the most famous of the tales, and a short biography of the author. The handy interactive table of contents lists the stories by date of publication, as well as alphabetical order, and includes alternative titles. If you are a Poe aficionado, you will love this book.

This material was NOT merely scanned from an ink-and-paper book, like many Kindle e-books are. All e-books offered by Di Lernia Publishers are hand-edited and checked for spelling and punctuation errors.

Biografía del autor

Author, poet, and literary critic, Edgar Allan Poe is credited with pioneering the short story genre, inventing detective fiction, and contributing to the development of science fiction. However, Poe is best known for his works of the macabre, including such infamous titles as The Raven, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, Lenore, and The Fall of the House of Usher. Part of the American Romantic Movement, Poe was one of the first writers to make his living exclusively through his writing, working for literary journals and becoming known as a literary critic. His works have been widely adapted in film. Edgar Allan Poe died of a mysterious illness in 1849 at the age of 40.

Horrible traducción, no lo recomiendo en absoluto. Aunque por el precio puede parecer barato, si lo compras estás tirando el dinero.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Good Choice for Poe Lovers 18 de junio de 2011
Por Fussy but Fair - Publicado en

There are so many choices here with respect to Edgar Allan Poe - at least among the $1.00 and under selections - it was hard to settle on which collection would be the most satisfying. Ultimately, I recommend this one, noting that all have pluses and minuses. This is a great (supposedly complete) collection with quality formatting and an interactive table of contents that lists the stories alphabetically, as well as by year. Having both makes it easy to put Poe's writings in perspective chronologically, while maintaining easy navigation. By the way, if you sample the book, you need to select "cover" in the "go to" menu to see the full ToC. Just page after the cover.

You won't find a biography here, but those of us who love Poe already know it and those who don't will be able to find satisfying bios on the web. The only true negative that kept me from giving this 5 stars is the lack of annotations for various foreign phrases. The other inexpensive Poe collections appear to suffer the same omission but nonetheless, it would have been nice. Definition annotations remain as with most Kindle books.

For me, this Poe compendium gives the opportunity to revisit all the stories I read many years ago at a price that is unbeatable. I don't regret the choice and am happy to stop agonizing over it.

It's nice to have all of Edgar Allen Poe's work in one place at a low cost. The quality of this Kindle edition is adequate, but not great. It's difficult to find the exact story you want to read as the organization is difficult. However, the price is low enough to overlook this issue. If, like me, you want a nice addition of a complete works, this may be for you. Just don't expect that it will be perfect.

The short stories of Ed Poe - I think he'd be OK with my calling him Ed - are incredibly diverse. Some are folksy and whimsical, some are creepy, some are ponderous and tedious, and many are just plain weird.

Poe could use the English language like a blunt instrument, and I developed a method to read it. Do NOT let yourself be stopped and bogged down at words and references you do not understand. There will be hundreds of these, and you don't have to ferret out and define every one. You'll pick up the flow and the sense of a story, and when this happens, just keep reading and the reference will either emerge on its own or fade. Just let this happen. Ed made most of his stories and his characters intentionally complex, but some are very flat-footed and straightforward.

I even came to suspect that he made a few of his stories incomprehensible on purpose, just as a joke of his own, to see if readers claimed to understand them or even praised them. He was also not above the occasional zinger. He uses the phrase "It was a dark and stormy night ..." in one, and a little research proves this was after Bulwer-Lytton famously used it in what is now considered the very worst opening paragraph ever to a major, published novel. Poe spins it out and makes it even cornier and more ludicrous. Edward Bulwer-Lytton was no Ed Poe, and Poe knew it.

If you dive into a story which makes no sense and you can't find the thread, it's OK to dump it and move on to the next one. Ed would just figure you didn't get the joke. He was a lot smarter than most of us. He was also a bit of a madman, maybe more than just a bit.

For me, Poe lends himself to the unusual. You don't have to be sitting quietly and properly upright in a proper chair with a floor lamp over your left shoulder to read him. I read most of these stories off of my phone on the Metro on the way home from a concert or a ballgame. He could be a fitting end to an evening of Tchaikovsky or Bartók or a Dodgers game. The characters and occasional commotion around me actually added to the atmosphere of the stories. They can be a fun distraction if you're stuck someplace with nothing to do for awhile, and you might even rig up a text-to-speech thing and listen to them in your car.

Poe isn't stiff and proper. He's fun. Give him a shot.
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A must read for entertainment or for any student of literature. 26 de enero de 2013

I don't have the education to appreciate all the references that Poe uses, nor do I read Latin and French, but can stumble through most of this. (He sometimes plays off some Latin and French quotes that I'm guessing was in literary and philosophical works he may have read, and were kicked around with friends at the pub, in his U of V days. But that's cake icing and most often not germane to the stories.)

It's been helpful, and educational, for me to read on Kindle because of the dictionary for antiquated words, or familiar words that have different connotations now. I say this as someone with a large vocabulary and as someone reasonably familiar with Elizabethan vocabulary.

The big surprise for me was his humor; Poe can be one sarcastic guy. I haven't read them all but so far only a handful are the expected horror stories.
