Edgar Allan Poe
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2006 - Juvenile Fiction - 80 pages
A popular spin-off from the Poetry for Young People series introduces children to America’s master of the spooky story: Edgar Allan Poe. Unabridged and fully illustrated, it’s the perfect collection to establish a life-long love of literature.
Edgar Allan Poe’s brooding tales of murder, madness, and revenge still grab today’s readers. Here are five of his finest, presented and fully annotated by Andrew Delbanco, a much-honored professor of humanities at Columbia University whom Time magazine called "America's Best Social Critic.” And throughout, chilling and evocative illustrations by renowned artist Gerard Dubois enhance the stories--among them a devilish, skull-like face to accompany "Masque of the Red Death” and an appropriately foreboding view of the House of Usher. The collection includes "The Tell-Tale Heart,” "The Cask of Amontillado,” and "The Oval Portrait”--and as always features an author biography, introductions to every story, and definitions of unfamiliar vocabulary.
