    1. Edgar Allan Poe Едгар Алан По Александър Бояджиев

      The name Poe brings to mind images of murderers and madmen, premature burials, and mysterious women who return from the dead His works have been in print since 1827 and include such literary classics as The Tell Tale Heart, The Raven, and The Fall of the House of Usher This versatile writer s oeuvre includes short stories, poetry, a novel, a textbook, a book of scientific theory, and hundreds of essays and book reviews He is widely acknowledged as the inventor of the modern detective story and an innovator in the science fiction genre, but he made his living as America s first great literary critic and theoretician Poe s reputation today rests primarily on his tales of terror as well as on his haunting lyric poetry.Just as the bizarre characters in Poe s stories have captured the public imagination so too has Poe himself He is seen as a morbid, mysterious figure lurking in the shadows of moonlit cemeteries or crumbling castles This is the Poe of legend But much of what we know about Poe is wrong, the product of a biography written by one of his enemies in an attempt to defame the author s name.The real Poe was born to traveling actors in Boston on January 19, 1809 Edgar was the second of three children His other brother William Henry Leonard Poe would also become a poet before his early death, and Poe s sister Rosalie Poe would grow up to teach penmanship at a Richmond girls school Within three years of Poe s birth both of his parents had died, and he was taken in by the wealthy tobacco merchant John Allan and his wife Frances Valentine Allan in Richmond, Virginia while Poe s siblings went to live with other families Mr Allan would rear Poe to be a businessman and a Virginia gentleman, but Poe had dreams of being a writer in emulation of his childhood hero the British poet Lord Byron Early poetic verses found written in a young Poe s handwriting on the backs of Allan s ledger sheets reveal how little interest Poe had in the tobacco business.For information, please see enpedia wiki Edgar_al

    1. Why I Almost Docked This Rating One Star Just For The Inclusion of Eureka And Why I Didn t Follow Through With That, And Also Why This Book is Mistitled A Review Of The Science Fiction of Edgar Allan Poe First, why I was so sorely tempted to give this volume 2 stars instead of the deserved three Eureka is atrocious.Now, I know what you re all going to say or many of you, anyway You re going to say that it s easy to look back in time nearly 200 years with our early 21st century perspective and cr [...]

    2. Very disappointed Some old stories, some stories using science ideas already around A so called prose poem to rid yourself of the need for ambien So sad, I have loved his stories and poems for years I wish I had not found this one.

    3. Kate Beaton sums it all up very well Poe wrote about balloons A lot And as I read, I looked very similar to Beaton s drawing of Verne in the third panel of that comic And when my back hurt too much, I turned into Verne in the fourth panel.I love Poe, quite a bit He s one of those authors I remember reading when I was probably too young to read him, but I could read him in the library and I dug it Now that we ve become fans of Balti, where Poe lived for many years and where his grave is, we made [...]

    4. Edgar Allan Poe is one of the most interesting and intriguing authors of the 19th century A poet, and master of the short story, he is credited with creating the detective story, and of course his gothic horror stories are well known The collection The Science Fiction of Edgar Allan Poe demonstrates that Poe also influenced the development of the genre of Science Fiction There are 15 works of short fiction, along with the incredible essay poem Eureka These stories are arranged in chronological o [...]

    5. This book is an interesting insight into the period when science fiction was still forming As such, I feel very guilty about giving up on it it certainly isn t terrible, and some of the concepts are very interesting, I simply find and have always found Poe s writing style hard going I managed MS Found in a Bottle , The Conversation of Eiros and Charmion , A Descent into the Maelstr m , and The Unparalleled Adventure of One Hans Pfaall The dense writing style is not helped by the rather stuffy en [...]

    6. Sci fi and fantasy has always been my genre, but reading this triggered my love of darker and gothic genres, classics, poetryEven in this day and age, Poe s imagination draws you in and makes it real, whether it be journeying to the moon in a balloon or falling through the centre of the earth at the poles

    7. Some Words with Poe s MummyIf I could bring Edgar Allan Poe s own mummy out today for a conversation at my dining table, much like the one he has with Ponnonner s Mummy Allamistakeo in Some Words with a Mummy I wonder if we could not find than lozenges with which to shame him over the state of his era He probably wouldn t be surprised though, since he admits that he was already tired of the state of the 19th Century Poe was quite an interesting man, with a unique mind and imagination Like all o [...]

    8. This is an extremely well footnoted annotated edition for aficionados of science fiction Harold Beaver, the editor and annotator is Poe s number one fan The point of getting this book is to read the footnotes Yes, it s all sort of antiquated and a bit boring for people whose expectations have been set by Frankenstein or even Poe s own horror, which have held up very well over time However, a lot of sci fi writers point to items in this collection as the beginning so I guess you might as well get [...]

    9. This book was the most challenging title I read this year mostly due to the 1800s style prose with long, compound sentences There are some good stories in here but you have to work for them What was 1800s sci fi like Think a hot air balloon trip to the moon, a hot air balloon speed flight across the Atlantic and a maelstrom from hell in the Nordic seas The most difficult story in this collection was Eureka A Prose Poem which I nearly gave up on after a few pages Instead, I plugged away at it a f [...]

    10. Este libro es una recopilaci n de historias de ciencia ficci n escritas por Poe en el Siglo XIX Se hace curioso leer ciencia ficci n sobre eventos que en la poca en la que se escribieron lo eran, como el viaje a la luna o cruzar un oc ano por el aire, pero que con la tecnolog a ya se han superado.Es gracioso ver c mo el autor intenta resolver, a mi modo de ver un poco inocente, los problemas tecnol gicos que entonces se planteaban y que ahora tienen una soluci n clara.El libro me ha resultado en [...]

    11. A fascinating and thoughtfully put together collection of Edgar Allan Poe s speculative fiction The stories cover a range from the almost possible to stories that would feel comfortable in any modern science fiction collection A good book for a reader who wants to know about how the genre of science fiction began and enjoys untangling untrustworthy narrators.

    12. I was expecting a lot from these tales Having in mind how much I enjoy Poe s horror stories, this book was a bit disappointing The descriptions were a bit naive and partial, and I was waiting for a lot interesting endings of the separate stories Additionally, the The Thousand and Second Tale of Scheherazade definitely did not help the book to get a higher rating from me.
