Song by Edgar Allan Poe

LibriVox logo LibriVox volunteers bring you 10 recordings of Song by Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849). This was the Weekly Poetry project for July 10th to July 18th, 2011.

Edgar Allan Poe was an American author, poet, editor and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career. (Summary from Wikipedia)
