Audible Editor Reviews

Edgar Allen Poe’s poems and stories of horror and mystery blend wit with the macabre. His inventive narratives and erudite use of language have delighted countless fans since his career was tragically short in the early 19th century. Here is a selection of works from one of the most admired and entertaining American intellects.

Volume 5 is performed by Scott Woodside, whose rich, throaty voice rolls over Poe’s lyrical, stylized language and who makes a noble effort at the hilarious Why the Little Frenchman Wears His Hand in a Sling, written phonetically in a thick Irish brogue. Among the other selections in this volume are stories approaching detective fiction, an essay on interior decorating, and satires digging at transcendentalists, popular sciences and people of Poe’s time.
