    Edgar Allan Poe

    HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics.
    '' ''...Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!'' Quoth the Raven, ''Nevermore.'' '' This selection of Edgar Allan Poe''s poetical works includes some of his best-known pieces, including the triumphant, gleeful ''The Bells'', the tragic ode ''Annabel Lee'' and his famous gothic tour de force, ''The Raven''. Some present powerful, nightmarish images of the macabre and bizarre, while others have at their heart a profound sense of love, beauty and loss. All are linguistic masterpieces that demonstrate Poe''s gift for marrying rhythm, form and meaning.
    An American writer of primarily prose and literary criticism, Edgar Allen Poe never ceased writing poetry throughout his turbulent life, and is today regarded as a central figure of American literary romanticism. He died in 1849.

    ''It was unnecessary for all to perish, when, by the death of one, it was possible, and even probable, that the rest might be finally preserved.'' Travelling aboard a whaling vessel, a young stowaway is swept up in myriad misadventures - mutiny, shipwreck, cannibalism - narrowly escaping numerous brushes with death. This rousing story of a daring sea voyage also presents its antihero with a host of psychological dilemmas, and offers an important insight into Poe''s work as a whole.
    The only complete novel by infamous gothic horror writer Edgar Allan Poe, ''The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket'' has inspired other classic tales of maritime adventure, such as Herman Melville''s ''Moby-Dick'' and Jules Verne''s ''Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea''.
