Item description for The Fall of the House of Usher: The Pit and the Pendulum & Other Tales of Mystery and Imagination (Classic Fiction) by Edgar Allan Poe & William Roberts...

The horrors of the Spanish Inquisition, with its dungeon of death, and the overhanging gloom on the House of Usher demonstrate unforgettably the unique imagination of Edgar Allan Poe. Unerringly, he touches upon some of our greatest nightmares - premature burial, ghostly transformation and words from beyond the grave. Written in the 1840s, they have retained their power to shock and frighten even now.

More About Edgar Allan Poe & William Roberts


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston in 1809, but was orphaned in 1811 and went to live with a foster family in Virginia. The relationship was conflicted, and the Allans withdrew their financial support after Poe had completed only one semester at the University of Virginia. He enlisted in the Army, then enrolled briefly in West Point, meanwhile publishing three volumes of poetry: Tamerlane (1827), Al Aaraaf (1829), and Poems (1831). From 1831 to 1835, he lived in Baltimore with his aunt, where despite his increasing literary success, he began a lifelong struggle with poverty and addiction to alcohol. In May 1836, he married his first cousin, Virginia Clemm, a child of thirteen. In April 1844, he moved his family to New York, and in January of the following year, his literary fortunes turned when his poem "The Raven" appeared in the New York Evening News. Overnight, he became the most talked-about man of letters in America. Early in 1847 his wife died of tuberculosis and he sank further into alcoholism. On October 3, 1849 he was found wandering the streets of Baltimore, delirious, and died four days later from an unknown cause.

Edgar Allan Poe lived in Boston. Edgar Allan Poe was born in 1809 and died in 1849.

I loved listening to this one  Feb 10, 2008
I am a great fan of Poe and really enjoyed listening to this. If you love Poe you will like this. Only complaint, wish there were about three or four more cd's to this package.
