    Edgar Allan Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and of American literature as a whole, and he was one of the country's earliest practitioners of the short story. Although best known for his short stories, Edgar Allan Poe was by nature and choice a poet. From his exquisite lyric 'To Helen,' to his immortal masterpieces, 'Annabel Lee,' 'The Bells,' and 'The Raven,' Poe stands beside the celebrated English romantic poets Shelley, Byron, and Keats, and his haunting, sensuous poetic vision profoundly influenced the Victorian giants Swinburne, Tennyson,...read more

    'The Pit and the Pendulum' is a short story written by Edgar Allan Poe and first published in 1842 in the literary annual The Gift: A Christmas and New Year's Present for 1843. The story is about the torments endured by a prisoner of the Spanish Inquisition, though Poe skews historical facts. The narrator of the story describes his experience of being tortured. The story is especially effective at inspiring fear in the reader because of its heavy focus on the senses, such as sound, emphasizing its reality, unlike many of Poe's stories which are aided by the supernatural. Edgar Allan Poe is also famous for such works as ''The Raven'', 'The Cask of Amontillado', 'The Fall of the House of...read more

    Between 1841 and 1844, Edgar Allan Poe invented the genre of detective fiction with three mesmerizing stories of a young French eccentric named C. Auguste Dupin. Introducing to literature the concept of applying reason to solving crime, these tales brought Poe fame and fortune. Years later, Dorothy Sayers would describe 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue' as 'almost a complete manual of detective theory and practice.' Indeed, Poe's short mysteries inspired the creation of countless literary sleuths, among them Sherlock Holmes. Today, the unique Dupin stories still stand out as utterly engrossing page-turners. Edgar Allan Poe is also famous for such works as ''The Raven'', 'The Cask of...read more

    'The Cask of Amontillado' (sometimes spelled 'The Casque of Amontillado' [a.mon.ti.ˈʝa.ðo]) is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, first published in the November 1846 issue of Godey's Lady's Book. The story, set in an unnamed Italian city at carnival time in an unspecified year, is about a man taking fatal revenge on a friend who, he believes, has insulted him. Like several of Poe's stories, and in keeping with the 19th-century fascination with the subject, the narrative revolves around a person being buried alive – in this case, by immurement. Edgar Allan Poe is also famous for such works as ''The Raven'', 'The Cask of Amontillado', 'The Fall of the House of Usher', 'The Masque of the...read more

    'Hop-Frog' (originally 'Hop-Frog; Or, the Eight Chained Ourang-Outangs') is a short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, first published in 1849.
