Review: The Raven and Other Poems

User Review  - Pat Adeff - Goodreads

Nevermore. 'Nuf said... One word, and your skin crawls. Poe was a deliciously dark writer, guaranteed to crack into the most stalwart psyche and turn it into a mush of fear. Read full review

About the author (1990)

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) reigned unrivaled in his mastery of mystery. Born in Boston, he was orphaned at age three, expelled from West Point for gambling and became an alcoholic. In 1836 he secretly wed his thirteen-year-old cousin. "The Raven", published in 1845, made Poe famous. He died in 1849 under what remain suspicious circumstances.

Gahan Wilson was born in 1930 in Evanston, IL and lives in New York City.
