From the Publisher (Bloomsbury). An inescapable black pit, an innocent buried alive, and the deranged hallucinations of a murderer all haunt this collection of Edgar Allan Poe's most celebrated stories. The undisputed master of gothic horror, Poe probes every imaginable depth of terror in his claustrophobic nightmares of murder and madness, including the classic “The Fall of the House of Usher,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.” Just as disturbing are the tales featuring the eccentric and ingenious Auguste Dupin—the first modern detective hero. In these chilling stories, Edgar Allan Poe’s macabre imagination explores the darkest corners of the human mind and the furthest reaches of the paranormal.
