"Der amerikanische Schriftsteller und Dichter E. A. Poe (1809-1849) gilt als Erfinder eines neuen Genres der Literatur - das des fantastischen Kriminalromans.In seinen grausamen, tragischen und spannenden Werken spürt man sehr deutlich den Einfluss der englischen und deutschen Romantik, besonders den von G. G. Byron und E. T. A. Hoffmann. Die Eigenart des Stils von E. A. Poe hat keine Nachfolger in seiner Heimat gefunden, sondern im Ausdruck des Schaffens von Charles Baudelaire und hierdurch später im Symbolismus und in der Dekadenzdichtung.Diese Ausgabe enthält 12 phantastische Erzählungen von E. A. Poe."
