October Series of the Month: The Complete Works of Edgar Allen Poe

With Halloween right around the corner, Cosimo has picked the perfect book for the the perfect scare. Originally published in 1902, our Series of the Month The Complete Works of Edgar Allen Poe, includes, in ten volumes, all the works of the admired American poet, fiction writer, and literary critic, Edgar Allen Poe (1808-1849). 

Through his work, Poe pioneered the short story, popularized romantic Gothic fiction in 19th century America, and almost single-handedly invented the genre of detective fiction. Through his works, he reflects his literary theories. He believed that literature should make individuals think by possessing a meaning beyond the surface, and that works that have an obvious message are not true art. He also believed, which is evident through his creations, that literature should be brief and focus on a single objective.

The collection includes:

- William Wallace
- The Raven
- Haunted Palace
- Annabel Lee
- A Dream Within a Dream
- Tamerlane
- The Conqueror Worm,
- and many, more

Cosimo offers the full set by individual volume at leading online bookstores or as a full set in hardcover and paperback. This series is perfect for anyone who enjoys classic literature, but also collectors of Poe's work, librarians, and professors. Appreciating Poe's work is essential to any understanding of American literature. If you are interested in purchasing the full set, please contact us.
