One of the only fully annotated and illustrated editions of Poe available on the English-speaking market, this collectible volume is bolstered by thousands of critical, historical, and psychoanalytical insights, dozens of chilling chiaroscuro drawings, and two short discussions accompanying each classic tale. This illustrated and annotated critical edition includes twenty of Poe's most psychologically harrowing weird tales and fourteen of his most notable poems, specially selected to satisfy the veteran devotee and the curious reader alike.
Long recognized as a cornerstone in the development of science fiction, fantasy, body horror, the weird tale, and the American short story, Edgar Allan Poe's legacy in those genres is indelible. His philosophical meditations on the combustible relationship between the mind and the body - the psychical and the physical - were often grisly, sometimes fantastical, always unsettling, and consistently cynical of humanity's ability to divorce the ideals of imagination from the reality of mortal life.
