This vintage book contains the second volume of "The Complete Works of Edgar Allen Poe". Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American author, editor, poet, and critic. Most famous for his stories of mystery and horror, he was one of the first American short story writers, and is widely considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre. The tales contained within this volume include: "Ms Found in a Bottle", "Berenice", "Morella", "Lionizing", "The Unparalleled Adventure of One Hans Pfaall", "The Assignment", "Bon-Bon", "Shadow: A Parable", "King Pest", "Loss of Breath", "Metzengerstein", "The Duc De l'Omlette", "A Tale of Jerusalem", and more. Many antiquarian books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
