Edgar Allan Poe's Gothic tales have established themselves as classics of horror fiction, and himself as the inventor of the modern mystery. 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.
