The Raven - Penguin Horror Hardcover
Edited by Guillermo Del Toro
The Raven: Tales and Poems is a landmark new anthology of Poe‰۪s work, which defied convention, shocked readers, and confounded critics. This selection of Poe‰۪s writings demonstrates the astonishing power and imagination with which he probed the darkest corners of the human mind. ‰ÛÏThe Fall of the House of Usher‰ describes the final hours of a family tormented by tragedy and the legacy of the past. In ‰ÛÏThe Tell Tale Heart,‰ a murderer‰۪s insane delusions threaten to betray him, while stories such as ‰ÛÏThe Pit and the Pendulum‰ and ‰ÛÏThe Cask of Amontillado‰ explore extreme states of decadence, fear and hate. The title narrative poem, maybe Poe‰۪s most famous work, follows a man‰۪s terrifying descent into madness after the loss of a lover.
