Edgar Allan Poe was a master of horror literature. While underappreciated in his time, Poe is now recognized as a literary genius whose gothic tales continue to intrigue and entrance.
Tales of Mystery and the Imagination brings together his most haunting and celebrated short stories, including ´The Fall of the House of Usher´, ´The Murders in the Rue Morgue´ and ´The Cask of Amontillado´. Prefaced by Poe specialist Dr Brook Haley, these tales of murder, madness and suspense are testament to Poe´s talent.
This beautiful slipcased edition is illustrated by art nouveau artist Harry Clarke, whose striking and fantastical illustrations perfectly capture the spirit of Poe´s uncanny tales. These eye-catching, full-page images accompany every story, with additional vignettes throughout the book.
