9780099540830: The Fall of the House of Usher: And Other Stories

"The most original genius that America has produced." —Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Edgar Allan Poe was a writer of uncommon talent; in The Murders in the Rue Morgue he created the genre of detective fiction while his genius for finding the strangeness lurking within us all has been an influence on everyone from Freud to Hollywood. This complete collection of all his short stories and novellas contains well-known tales 'The Pit and the Pendulum' and 'The Tell-Tale Heart' alongside hidden gems that both unsettle and enthrall the reader.

About the Author:

EDGAR ALLAN POE was born in Boston, USA, in 1809. Poe, short story writer, editor and critic, is best known for his macabre tales and as the progenitor of the detective story. He died in 1849, in mysterious circumstances, at the age of forty.

From AudioFile:

A fine collection of Poe's stories are selected here. Andrew Sachs does an excellent job of presenting each. He maintains the fine air of detachment at the beginning of each tale. Then, as each tale unfolds, he draws us in as Poe intended, making the full effect unsettling and in several cases chilling. Sachs speaks clearly and chooses few characterizations in the stories. There are numerous more dramatized readings of Poe's stories, but Sachs's straight-forward, intelligent presentation is an excellent choice for listeners who want unadorned narrative. R.F.W.
