Overview

Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore.”

With that undying line Edgar Allan Poe ensured his immortality in the annals of American letters. What student of literature or lover of poetry is not familiar with his poem “The Raven,” and the heartbreaking message implicit in its melancholy refrain?

“The Raven” is by far Poe’s best-known poem and it is one of more than forty to be found in The Raven and Other Poems, a volume that collects the best of Poe’s exercises in verse. Here, readers are treated to such masterpieces as “Annabel Lee,” “The Haunted Palace,” “The Conqueror Worm,” “The City in the Sea,” “Lenore,” and many more. These poems are imbued with the somber seriousness that we associate with Poe’s macabre fiction, but also with his marvelous appraisals of the mysteries of our and other worlds, and his fervent belief in undying love.

The Raven and Other Poems is one of Barnes & Noble’s Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world’s greatest authors in an elegantly designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging.

About the Author

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) was orphaned at the age of three and adopted by a wealthy Virginia family with whom he had a troubled relationship. He excelled in his studies of language and literature at school, and self-published his first book, Tamerlane and Other Poems, in 1827. In 1830, Poe embarked on a career as a writer and began contributing reviews and essays to popular periodicals. He also wrote sketches and short fiction, and in 1833 published his only completed novel, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket. Over the next five years he established himself as a master of the short story form through the publication of "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Masque of the Red Death," "The Tell-Tale Heart," and other well–known works. In 1841, he wrote "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," generally considered the first modern detective story. The publication of The Raven and Other Poems in 1845 brought him additional fame as a poet.
