release date: Nov 11, 2021
The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether
A dark comedy, threaded through with an unsettling plot twist, "The System" follows a bumbling narrator through a tour of a mental institution in southern France. The peculiar Monsieur Maillard, architect of this institution, hosts his visitor to a most peculiar evening with the most unusual guests. The Monsieur and his extraordinary host of friends, provide an evening of unsettling, haphazard and absurd company, full of strange happenings, beautifully described through Poe's eye for detail. Poe's flair for the absurd and hilariously satirical shines bright in this short story, as evidenced by the numerous adaptations that have followed, most notably 2014s "Stonehearst Asylum" starring Kate Beckinsale and Sir Michael Caine.

The Oval Portrait

release date: Sep 06, 2021
The Oval Portrait
Perhaps fitting for a horror short story, the devil is in the details in Poe’s "The Oval Portrait" (1842). A benighted traveller finds shelter in an abandoned mansion in the Apennine Mountains of Italy. Inside he gets absorbed by a stunning painting and decides to delve into its origins with the help from a book he finds on a pillow. The story revolves around the complex and often tragic relationship between life and art. As per usual Poe can’t help himself to play with layers, and most of the story is told as an embedded narrative. The intense emotional and psychological depths of the narrator’s infatuation with the portrait and the enticing volume that helps to shed a light on the painting make this short story another fascinating and haunting and Poesque tale which succinctly glorifies the immortality of art.

The Imp of the Perverse

release date: Jul 26, 2021
The Imp of the Perverse
Ever wondered how to combat the deep-seated urge to do wrong? Maybe Edgar Allen Poe can help. In "The Imp of the Perverse" (1845) Poe sets out to explain the Imp – the archetype responsible for persuading us to do what we know in our minds we shouldn’t. Poe, supposedly distraught with his own self-destructive impulses, lets the story take place primarily in the narrator’s mind as he frets the day he will have to come clean. At the heart of this short story is the question of how far we can justify our wrongdoings. It explores our self-destructive impulses and urges, the abandonment of reason and our inherent wickedness. Join Poe as he takes the reader from the sunny valleys of reason to the darkest regions of the human soul. A descent into madness.

The Cask Of Amontillado By Edgar Allan Poe
"The Cask of Amontillado" is a short story by American writer Edgar Allan Poe, first published in the November 1846 issue of Godey's Lady's Book. The story, set in an unnamed Italian city at carnival time in an unspecified year, is about a man taking fatal revenge on a friend who, he believes, has insulted him. Revenge turns deadly when the narrator, Montressor, buries his friend, Fortunato, alive as the result of a perceived insult. Like “The Black Cat” and “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Cask of Amontillado” is remarkable for being conveyed from the murderer’s perspective. A pioneer of the short story genre, Poe’s stories typically captured themes of the macabre and included elements of the mysterious. His better-known stories include “The Fall of the House of Usher”, “The Pit and the Pendulum”, “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, “The Masque of the Red Death” and “The Tell-Tale Heart”.

A Predicament

release date: Oct 07, 2020
A Predicament
The story is often labelled a sequel to "How to Write a Blackwood Article", and deals with Signora Zenobia, who comes across a stately cathedral and a giant clock, that soon will take her life. Both horrifying and hilarious, "A Predicament" is a bizarre story indeed, satirical in its entirety, verging on the nonsensical and the absurd. An extremely funny read, the story is definitely a dark comedy that continues the heroine’s predicament from the previous tale. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic. Most famous for his poetry, short stories, and tales of the supernatural, mysterious, and macabre, he is also regarded as the inventor of the detective genre and a contributor to the emergence of science fiction, dark romanticism, and weird fiction.

The Man That Was Used Up

release date: Oct 07, 2020
The Man That Was Used Up
A short story that is shrouded in mystery, "The Man that Was Used Up" follows a narrator who wants to learn more about an important military figure. A satirical tale that mocks a real person, its strengths as a literary piece lie in the grotesque and immensely humorous episode in which the General is presented. Comic and amusing, the story is a must for Poe fans, even though the supernatural element is left aside, while the paradoxical roams free. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic.

The Mystery of Marie Rogêt

release date: Oct 05, 2020
The Mystery of Marie Rogêt
A classic detective short story shrouded in mystery, "Marie Rogêt" features Poe’s famour investigator C. Auguste Dupin trying to solve a murder case. Based upon an actual murder, the short story is an intricate narrative revolving around floating dead bodies, strange suicides, phials of poison, and the power of newspapers to solve the gruesome murder. Cumbersome and rather slow-paced, the story is also often labelled as Poe’s least successful among his detective works. On the other hand, it can easily be read as an episode from the CSI TV series, indulging in sneaky situations and hypothetical resolutions.

A Dream Within a Dream

release date: Oct 05, 2020
A Dream Within a Dream
An example of Poe’s melancholic and morbid poetic pieces, "A Dream Within a Dream" is a poem that pitifully mourns the passing of time. The poet’s own life, teeming with depression, alcoholism, and misery, cannot but exemplify the subject matter and tone of the poem. The constant dilution of reality and fantasy is detrimental to the poetic speaker’s ability to hold reality in his hands. The quiet contemplation of the speaker is contrasted with thunderous passing of time that waits for no man. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic. Most famous for his poetry, short stories, and tales of the supernatural, mysterious, and macabre, he is also regarded as the inventor of the detective genre and a contributor to the emergence of science fiction, dark romanticism, and weird fiction.

The Thousand-and-Second Tale of Scheherazade

release date: Oct 05, 2020
The Thousand-and-Second Tale of Scheherazade
Have you ever wondered what would have happened if Scheherazade had not ceased with her tales and told the king another story that is actually a retelling of a previous story, but with an unexpected twist? Humorous, naïve, and quite contemporary, Edgar Allan Poe’s "The Thousand-and-Second Tale of Scheherazade" is a perfect example of how high can one’s imagination soar when unfettered by the restrictions of modernity. What is more, the story can be read as an example of how unpleasant the 19th century in Europe and America can be for a foreigner, and also mocks the developments of the industrial civilization. The allegorical and humorous depictions are unforgettable, and it is no wonder if the reader asks for more. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic.

William Wilson

release date: Aug 26, 2020
William Wilson
Inspired by Poe’s own tragic life, the short story clearly presages Freud’s method of psychoanalysis. In a very Fight-club-like plot and situations, "William Wilson" is a journey within the mind. Some sixty years prior to Freud’s clinical work and theoretical developments, Poe’s story is an example of the rise of the psychological genre in literature. A fruitful, and at the same time paranoid, the theme of the doppelganger runs strong in Edgar Allan Poe’s fiction. From "The Fall of the House of Usher" to "Morella" and "Ligeia", Poe’s characters are constantly harassed by conscious entities that mirror the chaos within the protagonists’ unconscious. The influence of "William Wilson" can be felt in the proliferation of contemporary movies exploring the idea of the double, such as Hitchcock’s "Vertigo" (1958), Basil Dearden’s "The Man Who Haunted Himself" (1970) or Darren Aronofsky’s "Black Swan" (2010).

King Pest

King Pest
What would you get if you take Lewis Carroll’s fairy-tale imagination and filter it through Edgar Allan Poe’s terror-ridden and grotesque vision? Add a tint of humour and a pinch of satire and voilà – an allegorically nightmarish Last Supper, situated in a house, previously occupied by an undertaker. Parodying the Black Death, the short story indulges in farcical situations, abnormalities, and a lot of puns. The characters exist in a misshapen, surrealist reality that embraces and caricatures London’s immoral middle-class particularities and pleasures. Come for the author, endure the grotesque, and relish the ending! Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic. Most famous for his poetry, short stories, and tales of the supernatural, mysterious, and macabre, he is also regarded as the inventor of the detective genre and a contributor to the emergence of science fiction, dark romanticism, and weird fiction.

Hop-Frog

release date: Aug 26, 2020
Hop-Frog
As with "The Cask of Amontillado", this story is centred around revenge as the only possible outcome for the insulted protagonist. Disrespect breeds revenge, which tinted with allegory and served with less terrific elements, manages to crown justice on top. It is a story about the triumph of the little people, acting in revenge for the violent and bestial needs of the big ones. And finally, when the masks are down, the reader can clearly see who the real monsters are and where evil resides. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic.

MS. Found in a Bottle

release date: Aug 26, 2020
MS. Found in a Bottle
A representative of Poe’s tales of the sea, "Ms. Found in a Bottle" follows the writer’s infatuation with the horrific and unknown forces around us. An avid reader just like his creator, the narrator finds solace within books and ancient lore, thus testing the limits of one’s imagination, and at the same time paving the road for further exploration of the unknown. Poe’s otherworldly narrative could easily fall in the same category as the sea voyages and tribulations described by later authors such as Herman Melville and Joseph Conrad.

The Man of the Crowd

release date: Aug 26, 2020
The Man of the Crowd
"The Man of the Crowd" is a story that deals with the influence of the big city upon the ordinary person. Obsessed with categorization, the protagonist feels baffled by his inability to piece together the situation in front of him. Moving from a state of contemplation and categorization, to a heightened state of mental pressure and desire to prove even further, Poe’s protagonist embarks on a journey through London darkest streets and godforsaken slums. The story is a perfect example of what happens when our rational thoughts are replaced by the delirious and altered perceptions of the world that lies beyond the ordinary one.

Ligeia

release date: Aug 26, 2020
Ligeia
From time immemorial, men have trembled and withered before the power of the femme fatale. "Ligeia" is a story about a man, whose meeting with a strange, beautiful, and overly intellectual woman in an old city borders on the supernatural and even further into the realms of the unknown. Touching upon subjects like forbidden knowledge and bizarre beauty, Poe’s story serves as an example of what awaits men who are easily led astray and then lost in the labyrinthine vistas of female beauty. Famous movie adaptations include Alfred Hitchcock’s "Vertigo" (1958) and Roger Corman’s "The Tomb of Ligeia" (1964). Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic.

The Pit and the Pendulum

release date: Aug 26, 2020
The Pit and the Pendulum
It is almost impossible to escape the Spanish Inquisition alive. However, Edgar Allan Poe’s unnamed narrator, after suffering innumerable tortures upon his body and soul in the hands of his tormenters, sees the light of the day at the very end of his sanity’s tether. Even despite the lack of supernatural elements, "The Pit and the Pendulum" (1842) has enjoyed and influenced several notable movie adaptations. Animations such as The "Flinstones", TV series like "Crime Scene Investigation", to films like Roger Corman’s "The Pit and the Pendulum" (1961), starring Vincent Price and some torture methods found in the "Saw" franchise, the story’s famous pendulum scene is a rather fruitful source of inspirations. Yet, despite the terrific torments, the story focuses primarily on how terror is implicitly depicted through the workings of the mind. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic. Most famous for his poetry, short stories, and tales of the supernatural, mysterious, and macabre, he is also regarded as the inventor of the detective genre and a contributor to the emergence of science fiction, dark romanticism, and weird fiction.

The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar

release date: Aug 26, 2020
The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar
One of E. A. Poe’s more horror-oriented stories, "The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar" presents the author’s obsession with death, scientific experiments, and resurrection. Playing around with forbidden and unscientific methods, Poe vehemently tries to exhibit his own medical knowledge to the reading public, asking for some sort of pardon for the horrific and disgusting end of his experiment. The depiction of gore and "detestable putrescence" paves the way for another master of American horror, H. P. Lovecraft, whose dream journeys and loathsome descriptions owe a great debt to Poe’s story. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic.

The Gold-Bug

release date: Aug 26, 2020
The Gold-Bug
Inspired by the developments in cryptography and the gradually emerging detective fiction, "The Gold-Bug" surely got mixed critical reception from the public. Hailed as both "ingenious" and "trashy", the story’s influence cannot be neglected, and surely Robert Louis Stevenson’s "Treasure Island" can vouch for that. What is more, the use of cipher in the story brought to the fore the interest in puzzles and hidden objects that would later be developed into board and video games.

The Murders in the Rue Morgue

release date: Aug 26, 2020
The Murders in the Rue Morgue
Often claimed to be among the first modern detective stories written, "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" exemplifies Poe’s interest in the workings of the mind when facing cases that need to be solved. C. Auguste Dupin, the protagonist, is the forefather of all great detectives such as Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, and Philip Marlowe. Different from Poe’s terror or horror-laden tales, the story nonetheless abounds in strange occurrences and horrific depictions. It has been made into several movie and TV adaptations, as well as radio programmes. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet, author, and literary critic.

The Black Cat
"The Black Cat" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe. It was first published in the August 19, 1843, edition of The Saturday Evening Post. It is a study of the psychology of guilt, often paired in analysis with Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart". In both, a murderer carefully conceals his crime and believes himself unassailable, but eventually breaks down and reveals himself, impelled by a nagging reminder of his guilt.

O Corvo

release date: Dec 12, 2019
O Corvo
Graças à sua melancolia e à sua impressionante descida pelas espirais do luto, "O Corvo" (1845) se tornou um dos poemas mais célebres da história. Traduzido por mestres como Charles Baudelaire e Fernando Pessoa, a obra-prima de Edgar Allan Poe atraiu por aqui a atenção de ninguém menos que Machado de Assis, que recriou o poema de maneira mais universal e mais condizente com os modelos métricos do português brasileiro. Nesta edição, tanto o poema original quando a tradução machadiana são acompanhados de uma "terceira tradução", desta vez pictórica, pelo francês Gustave Doré, autor de 26 impressionantes ilustrações de página inteira que ressignificam cada passagem do poema e expandem as fronteiras destes versos imortais.
