Filled with a sense of dread by the sight of the house itself, the Narrator reunites with his old companion, who is suffering from a strange mental illness and whose sister, Madeline is near death due to a mysterious disease. The Narrator provides company to Usher while he paints and plays guitar, spending all his days inside, avoiding the sunlight and obsessing over the sentience of the non-living. When Madeline dies, Usher decides to bury her temporarily in one of his house's large vaults. A few days later, however, she emerges from her provisional tomb, killing her brother while the Narrator flees for his life.

Edgar Allan Poe & Gustave Doré This Top Five Classics illustrated edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven includes:
• All 25 illustrations by Gustave Doré from the 1884 Harper & Brothers edition
• A informative introduction
• A detailed biography of Edgar Allan Poe
• An illustrated version and a text-only version of the poem
No poem has ever received the kind of immediate and overwhelming response that Poe’s “The Raven” did when it was first published in the New York Evening Mirror on January 29, 1845. It made Poe a household name overnight (though his great fame never brought much wealth), and the poem, a powerfully haunting elegy to lost love remains to this day one of the most beloved and recognizable works in the English language.
The illustrations that accompany this Top Five Classics edition were created by renowned French artist Gustave Doré for Harper & Brothers’ 1884 release of The Raven. Doré completed his steel-plate engravings just before passing away in January 1883. His posthumously published illustrations became famous in their own right, evoking as they do the lyrical and mystical air of Poe’s masterpiece.

About the book/sobre el libro:
"The Raven" is a narrative poem by American writer Edgar Allan Poe. First published in January 1845, the poem is often noted for its musicality, stylized language, and supernatural atmosphere. It tells of a talking raven's mysterious visit to a distraught lover, tracing the man's slow fall into madness. The lover, often identified as being a student, is lamenting the loss of his love, Lenore. Sitting on a bust of Pallas, the raven seems to further instigate his distress with its constant repetition of the word "Nevermore". The poem makes use of a number of folk and classical references.
Poe claimed to have written the poem very logically and methodically, intending to create a poem that would appeal to both critical and popular tastes, as he explained in his 1846 follow-up essay "The Philosophy of Composition". The poem was inspired in part by a talking raven in the novel “Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of 'Eighty” by Charles Dickens. Poe borrows the complex rhythm and meter of Elizabeth Barrett's poem "Lady Geraldine's Courtship", and makes use of internal rhyme as well as alliteration throughout.
"The Raven" was first attributed to Poe in print in the New York Evening Mirror on January 29, 1845. Its publication made Poe widely popular in his lifetime, although it did not bring him much financial success. The poem was soon reprinted, parodied, and illustrated. Critical opinion is divided as to the poem's literary status, but it nevertheless remains one of the most famous poems ever written. (Summary by Wikipedia)
El cuervo es un poema narrativo escrito por Edgar Allan Poe, publicado por primera vez en 1845. Constituye su composición poética más famosa, ya que le dio reconocimiento internacional. Son notables su musicalidad, el lenguaje estilizado y la atmósfera sobrenatural que logra recrear. El texto narra la misteriosa visita de un cuervo parlante a la casa de un amante afligido, y del lento descenso hacia la locura de este último. El amante, que a menudo se ha identificado como un estudiante, llora la pérdida de su amada, Leonor. El cuervo negro, posado sobre un busto de Palas Atenea, parece azuzar su sufrimiento con la constante repetición de las palabras «Nunca más» (Nevermore). En el poema, Poe hace alusión al folclore y a varias obras clásicas.
Poe afirmaba haber escrito el poema de forma muy lógica y metódica. Su intención era crear un poema que pudiese gustar tanto a las clases populares como a las personas de gusto más refinado, como explica él mismo en el que fue su siguiente ensayo: la «Filosofía de la composición». El poema se inspira parcialmente en la figura del cuervo parlante de la novela Barnaby Rudge de Charles Dickens. Poe toma prestados el complejo ritmo y la métrica del poema «Geraldine», de Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
La publicación de El cuervo, el 29 de enero de 1845 en el diario New York Evening Mirror, convirtió a Poe en un personaje muy popular en su época. Pronto se hicieron reimpresiones, parodias y versiones ilustradas del poema. Aunque algunos críticos mantienen opiniones diversas acerca de su valor literario, el poema sigue siendo una de las composiciones más famosas que se han escrito en lengua inglesa.

Edgar Allan Poe "The Tell-Tale Heart" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe first published in 1843. It follows an unnamed narrator who insists on his sanity after murdering an old man with a "vulture eye". The murder is carefully calculated, and the murderer hides the body by cutting it into pieces and hiding it under the floorboards. Ultimately the narrator's guilt manifests itself in the hallucination that the man's heart is still beating under the floorboards. It is unclear what relationship, if any, the old man and his murderer share. It has been suggested that the old man is a father figure or, perhaps, that his vulture eye represents some sort of veiled secret. The ambiguity and lack of details about the two main characters stand in stark contrast to the specific plot details leading up to the murder.
The story was first published in James Russell Lowell's The Pioneer in January 1843. "The Tell-Tale Heart" is widely considered a classic of the Gothic fiction genre and one of Poe's most famous short stories.
Edgar Allan Poe Harold Bloom, the famous (and controversial) literary critic, once asserted that what seems to bind together all great literary works is their strangeness. They may now be part of the western canon, but at the time of their writing, they have often been rejected, neglected, considered strange and “inappropriate” (take Dante’s Divine Comedy or even Lolita as an example).
With modern literature, strangeness is no longer just an attribute characterising the reception of these literary works, but also a main theme. With writers like Franz Kafka and Edgar Allan Poe, strangeness is at its best. We now give you one of Poe’s famous tales, the Gold Bug. Hit the button below and get yourself immersed in the dark shadows of this great master.

Je le chuchotai et un écho murmura de retour le mot Lénore! purement cela et rien de plus.

Edgar Allan Poewas an American author, poet, editor and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.
He was born as Edgar Poe in Boston, Massachusetts; he was orphaned young when his mother died shortly after his father abandoned the family. Poe was taken in by John and Frances Allan, of Richmond, Virginia, but they never formally adopted him. He attended the University of Virginia for one semester but left due to lack of money. After enlisting in the Army and later failing as an officer's cadet at West Point, Poe parted ways with the Allans. His publishing career began humbly, with an anonymous collection of poems, Tamerlane and Other Poems (1827), credited only to "a Bostonian".
Poe switched his focus to prose and spent the next several years working for literary journals and periodicals, becoming known for his own style of literary criticism. His work forced him to move among several cities, including Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City. In Baltimore in 1835, he married Virginia Clemm, his 13-year-old cousin. In January 1845 Poe published his poem, "The Raven", to instant success. His wife died of tuberculosis two years after its publication. He began planning to produce his own journal, The Penn (later renamed The Stylus), though he died before it could be produced. On October 7, 1849, at age 40, Poe died in Baltimore; the cause of his death is unknown and has been variously attributed to alcohol, brain congestion, cholera, drugs, heart disease, rabies, suicide, tuberculosis, and other agents.
Edgar Allan Poe This collection compiles all of Poe's poems, prose, and essays, along with multiple classic artists' illustrations and contextual explanations for his non-fiction work.
"The Raven," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Cask of Amontillado": Some of the greatest works in nineteenth century American literature were born from the tortured psyche of Edgar Allen Poe. Yet he did not only write about the macabre. Inside you'll find critical essays, romantic poetry, word puzzles, a pre-Sherlock Holmes detective story, and even a humorous poem mocking Wall Street greed (proof that some things never change).
