Short Story Reviews: "The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe"

"Edgar Allan Poe is credited with having pioneered the short story, having perfected the tale of psychological horror, and having revolutionized modern poetics. The entirety of Poe's body of imaginative work encompasses detective tales, satires, fables, fantasies, science fiction, verse dramas, and some of the most evocative poetry in the English language. "

Note: When I do short story book reviews, I will only be doing one story at a time because I have other books I need to move on to (and a majority of short story collections can sometimes have 30 or more stories in them!). These will be quick reviews because they are short stories. So, without further ado, the reviews.


* I will only be reviewing Poe's short stories, not his poetry*

A royal nobleman seemingly loses his mind after the death of his parents.

Liked: The buildup was done well

Disliked: A majority of the French wasn't translated







More to come soon!
