Rating: 3.5 Stars ★★★☆☆
True! – nervous – very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad?
Edgar Allan Poe has written some of my favourite short stories and poems. I have, however, never read his whole work. This book is an excellent introduction to it, with a good selection of his short stories and novellas. It also includes The Raven, though that’s the only poem in the book (I sort of missed Annabel Lee, another favourite of mine).
