Overview

This vintage book contains Edgar Allen Poe’s 1849 short story, “Landor's Cottage”. Unlike the majority of Poe’s work, this story is devoid of mystery, murder, and the macabre; instead, it is a detailed and masterful description of a lone cottage. A perfect example of Poe’s famous descriptive prowess, “Landor's Cottage” will appeal to fans of his marvellous work, and is not to be missed by the discerning collector. Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) was an American author, editor, poet, and critic. Most famous for his stories of mystery and horror, he was one of the first American short story writers, and is widely considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre. Many antiquarian books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

About the Author

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.
