Mit Daten zu Leben und Werk, exklusiv verfasst von der Redaktion der Zeitschrift für Literatur TEXT + KRITIK. Dunkel und gespenstisch sind Edgar Allen Poes schaurige Geschichten, die ganz ohne das übliche Repertoire des Schaurigen, ohne Geister und Gespenster, auskommen. Die Menschen selbst sind es, die sich in Angst und Schrecken versetzen: In der königlichen Spaßgesellschaft muss ein verkrüppelter Zwerg, seiner physischen Deformation wegen als ›Hopp-Frosch‹ verlacht, das Entertainment auf Kosten seiner eigenen Würde gewährleisten. Systematisch erniedrigt, wächst in ihm ein unbändiger Rachedurst heran. Er treibt seinen Beruf auf die Spitze und erlaubt sich einen tödlichen Spaß ...

These early works by Edgar Allan Poe were originally published in the mid 19th century. As a collection of short stories, these represent some of Poe's best works in the horror genre, and include 'The Fall of the House of Usher', 'The Masque of the Red Death', 'The Premature Burial', 'The Pit and the Pendulum', and many other titles. Born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1809, Poe became an orphan at a very early age. After being taken in by a couple in Richmond, he spent a brief spell in the United Kingdom before returning to enrol at the University of Virginia. Poe struggled for many years to make a living as a writer and frequently had to move city to stay in employment as a critic. Even for his greatest success, 'The Raven', he only received $9 and, although becoming a household name, his financial position remained far from stable. Poe died in 1849, aged just 40, yet his legacy is a formidable one: He is seen today as one of the greatest practitioners of Gothic and detective fiction that ever lived, and popular culture is replete with references to him. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.
