Explore the transcendent world of unity and ultimate beauty in Edgar Allan Poes verse in this complete collection.

Although best known for his short stories, Edgar Allan Poe was by nature and choice a poet. From his exquisite lyric To Helen, to his immortal masterpieces, Annabel Lee, The Bells, and The Raven, Poe stands beside the celebrated English romantic poets Shelley, Byron, and Keats, and his haunting, sensuous poetic vision profoundly influenced the Victorian giants Swinburne, Tennyson, and Rossetti.

Today his dark side speaks eloquently to contemporary readers in poems such as The Haunted Palace and The Conqueror Worm, with their powerful images of madness and the macabre. But even at the end of his life, Poe reached out to his art for comfort and courage, giving us in Eldorado a talisman to hold during our darkest momentsa timeless gift from a great American writer.

Includes an Introduction by Jay Parini
and an Afterword by April Bernard
