    “If he bad been less oversensitive, less bitter, less bereaved — happier — modern literature would be a much poorer thing.” A complicated character for sure, but it is hard to deny Poe’s influence on the horror genre and on poetry and literature as a whole. This collection of short tales is as good a starting point as any, and remain enjoyable today.

    This collection of short stories by Poe contains all the major works. That said, the first half of the book is filled with less popular tales, which are also less interesting and very predictable. The collection picks up in the second half, with my favorite, The Pit and Pendulum, and is much more interesting after.

    A great book where you can see the evolution of horror fiction. We see works from Poe, Stoker, and even Doyle here, along with writers that aren't household names who had a helping hand in shaping the genre as we know it today. Some stories don't hold up as much, but it's still cool to see where these tropes came from.

    Lo conseguí por un intercambio de libros que hizo CDMX, sin embargo, pensé que había escogido un buen título, porque vaya, tiene buenos y clásicos autores de terror, pero con este libro hicieron una pobre recopilación de ellos. De todos los relatos, si acaso uno o dos se rescatan. Lo demás... bueno... ni qué hablar.

    Es buena la selección de cuentos, muy recomendable para las personas que les gusta este género o los autores. En algunos hay referencias históricas para marcar el contexto. Son cuentos cortos lo que los hace amenos.

    DNF at page 62 I just couldn't get into this collection. Maybe I'll give it another try next Halloween and maybe try only reading a couple stories at a time?
