He was a seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, and exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, and Charles Baudelaire, who championed him long before Poe was appreciated in his own country. Baudelaires enthusiasm brought Poe a wide audience in Europe, and his writing came to have enormous importance for modern French literature. This edition includes his most well-known works--The Raven, The Pit and the Pendulum, Annabel Lee, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Murders in the Rue Morgue--as well as less-familiar stories, poems, and essays.
