Tales, by Edgar Allan Poe, is a collection of twenty-five stories from the literary father of the mysterious and the macabre. These individual pieces, which include 'The Fall of the House of Usher'. And 'Silence: A Fable', together make up the body of both Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, and Tales of the Folio Club. Taken as a whole, Poe's writing has cast its dark and exquisite shadow over many genres of literature, from the mysteries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to the science fiction of Jules Verne, but in this collection the author's ability to explore the darker corners of the readers' psyche comes to the fore. Such is the power of his story-telling that his tales retain their eerie power to delight and terrify in equal measure more than a century and a half after his death.… (mere)

Read all of Poe's works years ago. While this volume has never been read all the stories have been. In high school and afterwards read so much of his work and happy to have all of them now in a Classic Leather Bound book.

To be honest while there is much I loved about Poe not all of his writings excited me. For this reason have to give it only 4 stars as some stories are 5 stars and others 3 or 4 stars. Never really knew how to rate an anthology or collection. ( )

I'm ambivalent on the New Pocket Library collection of books. The introductions are nice, but every time I see that Moffett has "revised" the book, I wonder what it was he found necessary to change. I went over a couple of things, line by line, and now realize that the revisions are to the introductions, so I've changed his role to Editor.

This book has a work by Poe that I don't see in a lot of collections. Here's the list:

Edgar Allan Poe (an introduction, and brief biography)
The Fall of the House of Usher
Ligeia
The Masque of the Red Death
The Cask of Amontillado
The Pit and the Pendulum
William Wilson
A Descent Into the Maelstrom
The Gold Bug
The Murders in the Rue Morgue
The Purloined Letter

I believe this collection may be the only one I own with "William Wilson" (and I'm not sure that I'd ever read it before now). It's an interesting little pastiche, as Poe's work often is. I lift a nice Amontillado in Poe's honor, every now and then. ( )

193. Tales of Edgar Allan Poe (read 14 May 1945) On May 1, 1945, I said: "This morning I read Poe's Story of a Flight to the Moon, which was most interesting. I love Poe." On May 14 I said: "I read two stories in Tales of Edgar Allan Poe and now I have read every story in the book. In fact, I've read them two or three times. Poe is great. The Pit and the Pendulum and The Fall of the House of Usher cannot be bettered. My favorite author: E.A. Poe." ( )

An excellent collection of classic Poe literature, known as the the "official" text. This includes classics such as The Tell-Tale Heart and The Pit and the Pendulum. A great read for anyone interested in great literary genius. ( )
