The horrors of the Spanish Inquisition, with its dungeon of death, and the overhanging gloom on the House of Usher demonstrate unforgettably the unique imagination of Edgar Allan Poe. Unerringly, he touches upon some of our greatest nightmares: Premature burial, ghostly transformation, words from beyond the grave. Written in the 1840s, they have retained their power to shock and frighten even now.
Also in this collection of Poe's tales of mystery and imagination: "The Black Cat", "The Facts in the Case of M Valdemar", "The Cask of Amontillado", "Ligeia", "The Tell-Tale Heart", "The Masque of the Red Death", "The Premature Burial", and "The Raven".

Overall this was a very good audio book. The narrator can be a bit dramatic at times, almost to the point of being slightly humorous. However, his earnest desire to communicate Poe's gloomy atmosphere deserves a lot of credit. My rating would be a little higher if they cut out the cheesy background music during the intros. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed my purchase.
