The Tell Tale Heart - The Short Stories of Edgar Allan Poe (Fantasy and Horror Classics)
by Edgar Allan Poe




Overview -
This vintage book contains Edgar Allen Poe's 1843 short story, "The Tell-Tale Heart". An anonymous narrator recounts a murder that he has committed, detailing how he carefully dismembered the body and concealed it underneath the floorboards. His endeavours, however, are threatened when his guilt and insanity take on the form of a hallucination that the victim's heart is still beating from beneath the floor. Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American author, editor, poet, and critic. Most famous for his stories of mystery and horror, he was one of the first American short story writers, and is widely considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre. Many antiquarian books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
