Edgar Allan Poe wrote what few American writers before him had attempted; he wrote dark thoughts that haunted a sad and tormented soul. This edition of his works includes 7 short stories that begin with "The Gold Bug" a story that leads to a mystic treasure hunt. Also included is "The Oval Portrait" where an artist who cannot see inner beauty takes his wife's life by painting her soul in a portrait. Of course, The Pit and the Pendulum and Murders in the Rue Morgue are included. The collection is highlighted with striking illustrations and extended captions unique to the story.
