Edgar Allan Poe was a master of horror literature. While under-appreciated 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.
