Poe cannot be overstated. If you can overlook the idiotic manner the goth kid generation attempts to represent his work and see it for the true brilliance it is then you are going to walk away with some chilly stories. Dig deep into his stories and come out truly appreciating his brilliance.

The stories and poems you have heard of are the strongest of the collection by a mile. I didn't particularly enjoy the stories that were infighting between critics. ( )

early 19th century horror fiction. I got through a couple stories before losing my taste for it--way more grisly than I remember from my high school readings. ( )

I haven't read this particular book, but many of its stories.

Regardless of the opinion that others since have done better, as the originator of the detective mystery with the archetypal Dupin, Poe is a must-read.

First words
The Murders In the Rue Morgue:

The mental features discoursed of as the analytical are, in themselves, but little susceptible of analysis.
Edgar Allan Poe was born, the second of three children, at Boston, January 19, 1809.
