A review of Edgar Allan Poe’s poems and short stories

In the spirit of Halloween, I wanted to post something spooky. I’ve never liked poetry a lot, I like specific poetry, (like Haiku) but The Raven and The Black Cat caught my attention. Ever since then, I’m a huge admirer of Edgar Allan Poe’s works. He has written short stories, and of course, poems. I downloaded a free e-book to my Kindle, so if you have a tablet, or a phone, I’m sure that you will find a free complete collection of his works. I have not read all of them, but I have read a few of his short stories, and I found them highly interesting. I must say though, I like reading his poems best.


Here’s a short list of poems that I found to be Halloween-ish:

  • The Raven
  • The Black Cat
  • The Tell-Tale Heart
  • Spirits of the Dead
  • Tamerlane
  • Romance

Edgar Allan Poe was an incredible poet. His works are considered to be masterpieces. He has a very distinguished way of writing words that pop out. My favorite poem is The Raven, and I still vividly recall the words, and how they stuck with me. The Raven is a beautifully written poem. Poe’s poems are memorable and haunting, so if you want to read spooky things this Halloween, his poems and short stories do just the trick.

    • Of course! I’ll add a list, most of his poems are a bit long, but here’s a list of his shorter poems : A Dream, An Enigma, Eulalie, Hymn, Imitation, Romance, Silence, Song, Sonnet–, To Science, To —-, To F—-, To Frances S. Osgood, To Marie Louise Shew, To My Mother, To The River —-, and To Zante. Sorry about the names missing, Poe had written about people he knew, and he wanted to keep their identities anonymous.
