In a single, eye-opening volume, Edgar Allan Poe, Updated Edition presents complex critical analyses of this author's work. Critic, poet, and storyteller, Edgar Allan Poe is best known for his chilling tales of horror and mania, as well as his often-anthologized poems "The Raven" and "Annabel Lee." Though the critical reception to Poe's work has been mixed, his influence upon other great writers, including Fyodor Dostoevsky and Charles Baudelaire, remains undeniable. Bringing together a selection of the best criticism available, Harold Bloom breaks down the intricacies of Poe's work and analyzes the ideas presented in clear, accessible language.
