Edgar Allan Poe
(19 January 1809 - 7 October 1849)
“Avaunt! avaunt! from fiends below, the indignant ghost is riven —
From Hell unto a high estate far up within the Heaven —
From grief and groan, to a golden throne, beside the King of Heaven!
Let no bell toll, then,— lest her soul, amid its hallowed mirth,
Should catch the note as it doth float up from the damned Earth!
And I!— to-night my heart is light!— no dirge will I upraise,
But waft the angel on her flight with a Paean of old days!”
My Edgar Allan Poe book collection over the years.
Those last two books are my latest addition.
The first one is a novel The Poe Shadow by Matthew Pearl. I have read many negative comments about it, and about the author's writing style but i dont care. It's about Poe!
And finding it for only 4€ ( original price 18€ ) well that was great! Cannot wait to start it!
And the second one is actually a graphic novel In the Shadow of Edgar Allan Poe by Jonathon Scott Fuqua. It looks delicious from a quick glimpse. Found it for only 3.50€ ( original price 10€ )
