review 1: A fun little tale. A court jester, "being also a dwarf and a cripple," is nicknamed Hop-Frog by the king because of the way he moves. The jester and his girlfriend, who is also a dwarf and serves in the king's court, are regularly humiliated. After one too many disgraceful incide...
Tales of Death and Dementia (2009)

English

review 1: Hátizé…kicsit kiábrándultam. Se a sztorik, se a képek nem olyan jók, mint az első kötetben, az egésznek olyan nagyon másodvonalbeli hangulata volt. Az egyetlen érdekesebb része a M. Vandemar-os fejezet, mert tele van ilyen anatómiai rajzokkal, amik tök jól visszaadják a hangulato...
Cuentos macabros (2011)
language
English
4.23 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Macabre, indeed. The first tale in this edition is the haunting "Berenice"; a tale about obsession/fixation, death, bloody teeth and resurrection. Shortly after follows "The Black Cat"; a story of alcohol abuse, fire, damnation, murder and a black cat who is the source of it all....

review 1: La première fois que j'ai lu ce livre, j'étais au collège. Alors évidemment ma relecture à plus de 40 ans n'a pas été tout à fait la même ! Qu'est-ce qui a changé ? Le fait de ne pas attendre des conclusions toutes simples et toutes prêtes à chaque nouvelle, et de laisser la plac...

review 1: Saya suka sebagian besar cerita di buku ini, terutama yang menjadi favorit saya adalah "Gema Jantung yang Tersiksa", "Setan Merah", "Kucing Hitam", dan "Potret Seorang Gadis". Sedangkan cerita yang berjudul "Pesan dalam Botol" menurut saya berjalan agak datar (kecuali di bagian a...

review 1: Such a tragic piece of art ... breath-taking !!!"I wedded;—nor dreaded the curse I had invoked; and its bitternesswas not visited upon me. And once—but once again in the silence of thenight; there came through my lattice the soft sighs which had forsakenme; and they modelled them...
Os Crimes da Rua Morgue (1901)
language
English
3.93 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Edgar Allan Poe è per tanti versi l'ideatore del romanzo giallo, o meglio, l'ideatore del romanzo poiziesco, dove il ragionamento e l'intuito fanno da padroni a questa indagine. Si nota subito l'acume di Dupain e grazie al ragionamento ogni cosa è spiegata. Nonostante conoscessi ...
Assassinatos Na Rua Morgue (1901)
language
English
3.93 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Just like classics like Lord Of The Rings, this title is the first milestone in the genre, it was the pioneer, it had set up the rules, the characters. It is the template in the detective fiction- usage of Urban setting, closed-room whodunit scenario, narration by secondary chara...
The Premature Burial (2000)
language
English
3.87 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: The always reliable Poe. It never fails; whenever I haven't read Poe in a while, always forget just how macabre his writing is. It's not just the intellectual horror that he describes regarding being buried alive: "...the blackness of the absolute Night--the silence like a sea th...

English
4.05 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Un hermoso y excelente libro. La recopilacion de los cuentos es muy buena, siendo elegidos los más destacados y elementales cuentos de Poe (sin tener en cuenta a "El Corazón Delator").Pero, sin duda, lo que más me gusta son los dibujos. (Me siento tan niña admitiendo esto!). Los ...

review 1: I thought this short story was really impressive. I remember watching a black and white version of the film when I was really young and being really scared by it. Who would have known that I would read the book behind it one day. It’s a story about a murder that takes place in P...
The Works of Edgar Allan Poe, Vol 2 (2000)
language
English
4.31 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I think I've now read Poe's most famous stories, which is interesting since I've got vol.s 1, 3 and 4 to go. A few of the stories were really similar to each other - for example The Tell-Tale Heart and the one earlier in the collection where the character does almost exactly the ...

review 1: Amazing book with story on one page and picture on another makes you feel the stories to the fullest. You see what’s going on, you feel what the characters are feeling and you want to be the first person in the story, be it killer or a friend of a treasure hunter. Any adult perso...

language
English

review 1: This book/story I don't remember at all even though when I was in high school I read every Edgar Allen Poe I could get my hands on. There's one scene where the detective is telling Dupin for 7-8 hrs what he thinks happened and Dupin, wearing his colored eye glasses, is asleep. ...
William Wilson (2000)
language
English
3.85 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This is a horror story, much like the unforgettable A Christmas Carol (1843) by Charles Dickens. Dickens, and English contemporary of the author, shared many similarities. Like Ebenezer Scrooge, William Wilson was in turmoil with himself (effectively making himself his own worst ...

review 1: An Open-Letter to Edgar Allan PoeDear Mr. Poe,I know you probably have a lot of high school students writing to you, complaining about finding symbolism in The Raven or examining the psychology of the narrators in The Black Cat and The Tell Tale Heart. Don't worry. I'm not writin...

review 1: Vieron esos cuentos cortos que son geniales pero desearían que duraran más? Bueno, les presento a "el corazón delator".Este libro lo leí de chica y hasta en ese momento quería que la historia continuara (en mi inocencia, pensaba que podría mandarle un mail a Poe para decirle que ...

review 1: Interesting little story. It begins with a gentleman who says that the published stories in newspapers of bizarre instances are too much to be believed. Then the angel responsible for these things, the Angel of the Odd, visits in order to reprove him. The man's life then becomes ...
