The Raven, Annabel Lee, Eldorado, The Sleeper, The Haunted Palace, The City in the Sea. These are some of the world’s most fascinating, best-loved poems. Edgar Allan Poe’s verses—masterpieces of mystery, horror, melancholy, and haunting melody—grip the imagination and fuel the emotions. World-famous New Yorker and Playboy cartoonist Gahan Wilson, whose work finds the eerie in the most common of situations, brings the perfect, surreal touch to Poe’s elegantly dark poems.
