Our customer reviews I've been a complete fan of his for years and as a young girl, I spent many a night terrified but reading under my sheets, rushing to get the end of one of his pieces so I get to sleep and have a good nightmare!
This is the ultimate collection for any fan, nicely laid out, easy to source a poem that you thought you knew but only had scratchy information on. I adore the jet black darkness of some of his work and then, at the turn of a page, he manages to pull me through to a level of complete and utter, unmistakeable beauty. Such a talent in his pen! If you are a total aficionado of Poe, despite probably having many of his singular titles on your shelf, you should surely consider the investment of this complete work, if for no other reason than to waft effortlessly through the index in search of whatever you need at that particular moment.
It is one of my favourites to dip into and is still a firm favourite on my bedroom night table! Book ratings by Goodreads.
