Complete Poetry of Edgar Allan Poe by Edgar Allan Poe
Book DescriptionFrom the author of The Tell-Tale Heart, The Pit and the Pendulum, and The Murders in the Rue Morgue . . . Although best known for his short stories, Edgar Allan Poe was by nature and choice a poet. This edition of his complete poetry illustrates the transcendent world of unity and ultimate beauty he created in his verse. 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 his 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 moments a timeless gift from an American writer. With an Introduction by Jay Pariniand an Afterword by April Bernard "

Author Biography - Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston in 1809, but was orphaned in 1811 and went to live with a foster family in Virginia. The relationship was conflicted, and the Allans withdrew their financial support after Poe had completed only one semester at the University of Virginia. He enlisted in the Army, then enrolled briefly in West Point, meanwhile publishing three volumes of poetry: Tamerlane (1827), Al Aaraaf (1829), and Poems (1831). From 1831 to 1835, he lived in Baltimore with his aunt, where despite his increasing literary success, he began a lifelong struggle with poverty and addiction to alcohol. In May 1836, he married his first cousin, Virginia Clemm, a child of thirteen. In April 1844, he moved his family to New York, and in January of the following year, his literary fortunes turned when his poem The Raven appeared in the New York Evening News. Overnight, he became the most talked-about man of letters in America. Early in 1847 his wife died of tuberculosis and he sank further into alcoholism. On October 3, 1849 he was found wandering the streets of Baltimore, delirious, and died four days later from an unknown cause. Jay Parini, a poet and novelist, is Axinn Professor of English at Middlebury College. His books include the poetry collection Anthracite Country; the novel The Last Station; and biographies of John Steinbeck, William Faulkner, and Robert Frost, the last of which won the Chicago Tribune-Heartland Award for the best work of nonfiction of 2000. Among the many books he has edited are The Columbia History of American Poetry and The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Literature. April Bernard s books of poems are Blackbird Bye Bye, which won the Walt Whitman Prize from the Academy of American Poets; Psalms; Swan Electric; and Romanticism. She has also published a novel, Pirate Jenny. A former magazine editor for many years, she is now a professor of literature at Bennington College and is also on the faculty of the Bennington MFA writing seminars."
