Collected tales and poems - opis produktu:

Edgar Poe was born the son of itinerant actors on January 19th, 1809 in Boston, Massachusetts. Abandoned by his father and the later death of his mother, he was taken into the foster care of John Allan, a Virginia tobacco farmer. Now styled as Edgar Allan Poe, he distinguished himself at the University of Virginia, bu was equally adept at collecting debts from his assiduous gambling. His stepfather`s disapproval shattered their fragile relationship and Poe left home to seek his fortune. In 1836, he married his cousin, Virginia, but despite his prolific activities - journalism, poetry, lecturing, short stories, publishing, criticism and experimentatio with fictional genres, including the detective novel which he virtually invented with the publication of `The Murders in the Rue Morgue` (1841) - he received scant recognition for his efforts, until the publication of `The Raven` in 1845. The poem`s instant popularity gave him a new visibility in literary circles, but his persona situation remained desperate: poverty, illness, drink, and the physical decline and ultimate death of Virginia in 1847 led to his untimely and premature decline. In 1849, he was found sick, injured and semi-conscious in a Baltimore tavern. Taken to hospital, he lingered on for four days, but never recovered and on October 7th Edgar Allan Poe died at the age of 40. He was one of the most original writers in the history of American letters - a genius who, thanks to his dire reputation, was tragically misunderstood during his lifetime. It was not until Baudelaire enthusiastically translated his work that he found a wider audience in Europe, and became not onl an enormous influence on modern French literature but also on the acclaimed work of writers such as Dostoevsky, Conan Doyle and Jules Verne.
