    Edgar Allan Poe, is best known for the Raven, still the greatest and most famous American poem ever written (in my opinion).Inventor of the detective story, master of the short story, especially the macabre, writer, editor , critic, essayist, gambler, beggar, drunk, drug user, widower, and manic depressive.In other words, an American original. A hard life he lived partly his own fault however being an orphan wasn't conducive for happiness in the harsh 1800's . Still you could not help but root f Edgar Allan Poe, is best known for the Raven, still the greatest and most famous American poem ever written (in my opinion).Inventor of the detective story, master of the short story, especially the macabre, writer, editor , critic, essayist, gambler, beggar, drunk, drug user, widower, and manic depressive.In other words, an American original. A hard life he lived partly his own fault however being an orphan wasn't conducive for happiness in the harsh 1800's . Still you could not help but root for him. A brilliant man full of angst he could never escape from his doom sadly quite predictable. NEVERTHELESS his SHORT LIFE left US many splendid reads. Poe's only novel, in 1838, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, is included in this book. Which I will review... The strange book has a unearthly view as if this was on another planet, anyone seeing the pages fly by will feel the creepiness a ghoulish atmosphere falls on the unfortunate victims . His great poems and splendid stories no one else could write so well, oozing the weird and you my friends must find yourselves... Young Pym befriends Augustus, the son of a sea captain. Wanting adventure , this teenager has his friend stow him away, in his father's ship.But something goes wrong . After many days hidden and starving, Arthur leaves his secret place and discovers there has been a mutiny on board! Luckily Augustus is still alive and gives his friend food and water.The mutineers have a power struggle on ship causing much turmoil. When a hurricane hits, most of the drunken crew perish, with the vessel capsizing.The survivors cling to the bottom of the ship, for their lives, which is now the top. Finally picked up after many days at sea by the Jane Guy and landing in Africa. Later they go to the Antarctic and Arthur Pym disappears in that vast, lonely , cold land. Will he ever be seen again? This novel's failure caused Poe not to write another a shame for it was too weird for the 19th century but not for now...

    Some of my very favorite poems. Can be very dark and depressing, by so deep and meaningful.

    My first real book! When I was 15 I lived with my grandparents for a year(long twisted story), my grandmother insisted that I read and read well to acquire a decent education. I told her reading was boring and I just didn't get why people wasted time reading. She laughed and showed up a couple of days later with this book for me. I was horrified at the size of it(almost 1200 pages). Much to my amazement and her amusement I loved it!! And still have the original copy she gave me! Thanks, Grandma! My first real book!

    It was quite an undertaking to complete but I am glad that I did. In middle and high school literature classes I always loved the romantic era because inevitably we got to read something by Poe. It was a nice refresher to reread many of his classic stories but also to experience some of his lesser-known stories, most of which are equally compelling and entertaining.
