The narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, of Nantucket by Edgar Allan Poe( )

145 editions published between 620 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 3,515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After reading an 1836 newspaper account of a shipwreck and its two survivors, Edgar Allan Poe penned his only novel, 'The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, the story of a stowaway on a Nantucket whaleship who finds himself enmeshed in the dark side of life at sea: mutiny, cannibalism, savagery-even death. As Jeffrey Meyers writes in his Introduction: '[Poe] remains contemporary because he appeals to basic human feelings and expresses universal themes common to all men in all languages: dreams, love, loss; grief, mourning, alienation; terror, revenge, murder; insanity, disease, and death.' Within the pages of this novel, we encounter nearly all of them. Bron: Flaptekst, uitgeversinformatie
The black cat by Edgar Allan Poe( )

232 editions published between 1842 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 3,447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story's speaker unwinds, in a logical manner, a series of happenings he calls "household events." More deeply, however, the reader embarks on a ghastly journey through the subconscious of a murderer. Through the telling of the events, and through the guilt and pressure of the subconscious, the details of the murder are revealed
William Wilson by Edgar Allan Poe( )

41 editions published between 1839 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 3,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Wilson tells the tale of a man who travels around the world pursued by his ghostly double who tries to keep him from sin and vice. This stands out among Edgar Allen Poe's stories for the fact that it is less Gothic, less gruesome, and less melodramatic than most of his other work. You'll find a different kind of storytelling here than you would in The Tell-Tale Heart or in The Fall of the House of Usher. [Publit]

The mystery of Marie Roget by Edgar Allan Poe( )

40 editions published between 1899 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 3,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poe's character, the detective C. August Dupin, and his sidekick, the unnamed narrator, undertake the unsolved murder of Marie Rogêt in Paris. The body of Rogêt, a perfume shop employee, is found in the River Seine and the media take a keen interest in the mystery. Dupin remarks that the newspapers "create a sensation...rather than to further the cause of truth." Even so, he uses the newspaper reports to get into the mind of the murderer. Dupin uses his skills of ratiocination to determine that a single murderer was involved who dragged her by the cloth belt around her waist before dumping her body off a boat into the river. Finding the boat, Dupin suggests, will lead the police to the murderer

The island of the fay by Edgar Allan Poe( )

16 editions published between 1841 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 3,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scenario of this work is atypical for Poe. The narrator begins his tale by commenting that "the higher order of music is the most thoroughly estimated when we are exclusively alone." Only then, he states, can its "spiritual uses" be fully appreciated. "But there is one pleasure still within the reach of fallen mortality--and perhaps only one--which owes even more than does music to the accessory sentiment of seclusion. I mean the happiness experienced in the contemplation of natural scenery. In truth, the man who would behold aright the glory of God upon earth must in solitude behold that glory." The narrator explains that the presence of any other form of life other than "the green things which grow upon the soil and are voiceless" is "at war with the genius of the scene." The "dark valleys," the "grey rocks," the "waters that silently smile," the "proud watchful mountains" are "the colossal members of one vast animate and sentient whole...whose life is eternity; whose thought is that of a God; whose enjoyment is knowledge; whose destinies are lost in immensity; whose cognisance of ourselves is akin with our own cognisance of the animalcule which infest the brain--a being which we, in consequence, regard as purely inanimate and material, much in the same manner as these animalcule must thus regard us."
The spectacles by Edgar Allan Poe( )

15 editions published between 1844 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The narrator, 22-year old Napoleon Buonaparte, changes his last name from "Froissart" to "Simpson" as a requirement to inherit a large sum from a distant cousin, Adolphus Simpson. At the opera he sees a beautiful woman in the audience and falls in love instantly. He describes her beauty at length, despite not being able to see her well; he requires spectacles but, in his vanity "resolutely refused to employ them." His companion Talbot identifies the woman as Madame Eugenie Lalande, a wealthy widow, and promises to introduce the two. He courts her and proposes marriage; she makes him promise that, on their wedding night, he will wear his spectacles

11 editions published between 1849 and 2015 in English and held by 3,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected tales by Edgar Allan Poe( )

94 editions published between 1922 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 3,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edgar Allan Poe's Gothic tales have established themselves as classics of horror fiction, and as the inventor of the modern mystery, Poe created many of the conventions which still dominate the genre of detective fiction. Attentive to the historical and political dimensions of these very American tales, this new selection of twenty-four tales places the most popular, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Masque of the Red Death, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, and The Purloined Letter--alongside less well-known travel narratives, metaphysical essays, and political satires
