About the Author:

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-49) was born in Boston and orphaned at an early age. Taken in by a couple from Richmond, Virginia, he spent a semester at the University of Virginia but could not afford to stay longer. After joining the Army and matriculating as a cadet, he started his literary career with the anonymous publication of Tamerlane and Other Poems, before working as a literary critic. His life was dotted with scandals, such as purposefully getting himself court-martialled to ensure dismissal from the Army, being discharged from his job at the Southern Literary Messenger in Richmond after being found drunk by his boss, and secretly marrying his thirteen-year-old cousin Virginia (listed twenty-one on the marriage certificate). His work took him to both New York City and Baltimore, where he died at the age of forty, two years after Virginia.

From AudioFile:

The title story, on the first side of this tape, is a magnificent demonstration of the very best the medium has to offer. The music of Poe's text is amplified and clarified with sound effects and an original score. My two boys, aged 9 and 12, were transfixed. Poe's daunting vocabulary is played here for sound, as well as content. Tragically, "Silence: A Fable," the story on the other side of the tape, is far more abstract and quite difficult to follow. "I don't like the two-hundred-year-old words," my 9-year-old complained. I'm afraid I knew what he meant. B.H.C. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
