Description

A collection of Edgar Allan Poe's writings, including The Fall of the House of Usher--the inspiration for the Netflix series from Mike Flanagan, the director of The Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass!

This selection of critical writings, short fiction and poetry demonstrates Poe's intense interest in aesthetic issues and the astonishing power and imagination with which he probed the darkest corners of the human mind. "The Fall of the House of Usher" describes the final hours of a family tormented by tragedy and the legacy of the past. In "The Tell Tale Heart", a murderer's insane delusions threaten to betray him, while stories such as "The Pit and the Pendulum" and "The Cask of Amontillado" explore extreme states of decadence, fear and hate.
