Overview

Hailed as the creator of detective fiction, and a master of Gothic literature, Edgar Allan Poe was a prolific writer of poetry, short stories, letters, and literary criticism. Best-known for his gruesome tales exploring murder and death, Poe’s writings remain foundational components of the mystery genre. As the first well-known American writer to earn a living solely through his writing, Poe produced countless short stories, poems, and essays. The Mystery Writers of America annually present the Edgar Award for significant contributions to the mystery genre. Poe himself was every bit as fascinating as the characters and stories he created, and his own untimely death continues to be a mystery of its own.

Included in The Works of Edgar Allan Poe (10 vols.) are over 2,000 pages of Poe’s memorable works. The collection includes over 40 of Poe’s famous poems such as “The Raven,” influential detective stories like “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Purloined Letter,” and dozens of other significant stories and essays, such as “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Cask of Amontillado,” “Ligeia,” and Eureka.

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) was an American poet, author, literary critic, and editor in the American Romantic Movement. Poe was the first well-known American writer to earn a living solely through his writing, though he struggled financially for most of his life. He is widely hailed as the creator of detective fiction, and is often regarded as a significant influence on early science fiction. Many of Poe’s writings worked within popular Gothic themes, and his best-known works explore the dark and mysterious corners of the human mind.

Poe’s life was in many ways as mysterious as his writings. He married his 13-year-old cousin, who died of tuberculosis just a few years later. His own death remains a mystery. Numerous theories exist, attributing his death to alcohol, cholera, drugs, heart disease, rabies, tuberculosis, suicide, brain congestion, and other causes. Beginning in 1949, an unknown visitor honored Poe’s death with a visit to his grave on the date of his death. The tradition continued for more than 60 years, and the individual was known as the “Poe Toaster.” Poe appears frequently as a character in other works, and his writing is alluded to by artists of every medium. Several of Poe’s homes are now museums dedicated to his life.
