Who was Edgar Allan Poe? A genius, a visionary, blessed or cursed by the gods? The powerful nightmares of his fertile
imagination have transformed him into a literary name that
echoes through time as one of the most influential and inspiring voices of the 19th century. Father of detective stories
long before the creation of Sherlock Holmes’ deductive logic
by Conan Doyle, and a pioneer in the difficult genre that is sci-fi, his genius paved many new directions for fiction. The book
“Edgar Allan Poe’s Best Tales” mentions the author as one of
the most influential voices in the horror genre and shares his
legacy with the new generations through a compilation of 28
horror stories illustrated by national artists.
