4.0 su 5 stelle A Poe volume in need of editing 11 dicembre 2012
Di Donald Wright - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
There's a sense in which I agree more or less with all of the preceding reviews, despite their wide divergence. Poe himself--one of the most erudite and gifted of all writers--needs no further critique or literary assessment. But a few additional observations about this publication are warranted.

The volume is in need of a cover-to-cover editorial overhaul! Scarcely a page can be found that doesn't have at least one inexcusable and egregious spelling error, e.g., 'beeame' [sic] instead of 'became' (Morella), 'pourtray' [sic] instead of 'portray' (The Oval Portrait), 'Dragon' instead of 'Dagon' (A Tale of Jerusalem). (Admittedly the latter misspelling of a pagan god could not have been detected by any available software--but shouldn't the editor have caught and prevented it?) Was the volume proofread at all?

The footnotes are immensely valuable, shedding light on almost all of Poe's learned references to works of antiquity, classical and obscure authors and artists, and the various and sundry arcana of which he was master. But there again, oddities leave one scratching one's head. Why Is Almost Every Footnote Printed with Initial Caps (as in This Sentence)? Why do footnotes also contain so many misprints, e.g., 'Bells Were Rang [sic] to Alert the Audience ...' (The Rats of Park Theatre)? Why does the numbering scheme sometimes go awry, e.g., 9, 10, 11, 13 [sic], 12, 13 [again!], 14 (A Tale of Jerusalem)? These are minor complaints, but they testify to a want of editorial attention.

And one additional minor annoyance: in a volume of over 800 pages, it would have been helpful had the gutters been a bit wider to enable the book to lie flat and thus allow more comfortable reading.

I would probably have awarded the book only 3 stars but for its very helpful footnotes and annotations.
5.0 su 5 stelle A great informational text filled with Poe's incredible works! 22 marzo 2015

An incredible text-like book. Tons of information about Poe's life and the people in his life and his inspirations. Many contributors. A very thick and heavy book. Not a book tho throw in your purse! But this is what I was looking for.
4.0 su 5 stelle Best Poe compilation yet 20 agosto 2014

If the stories had been presented chronologically, I'd have given it five stars. Great footnotes, providing much needed context for Poe's obscure (and often foreign) terminology.

5.0 su 5 stelle Comprehensive 23 gennaio 2011
Di Elvin Ortiz - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is the most comprehensive book I've seen on Edgar Allan Poe. It is comfortable to read because it has the proper annotations and an introduction, which makes its texts accessible. I remember that as a child, the use of Greek and Latin in these texts, scared me off from Poe. There are only a couple of things that slightly bothered me about this text: first, I like literary texts to be presented in chronological order because chronology in anthologies communicates something about the author and the society that contextualizes the text; the other thing was that I expected better illustrations for the text. When I saw "Illustrated" I was expecting something similar to what you see in illustrated texts: a lot of drawings and pictures that may visualize the story. Nevertheless, I can't consider this last flaw troublesome because Poe was so detailed that one doesn't need that many pictures (although I confess that in the case of The Raven the illustrations were very helpful to grasp the mood) to be able to visualize the "Murder in the Rue Morgue" or the facts in the "Mystery of Marie Roget." The chronology, however, I consider necessary in any scholarly work on literature. Yet, this text is worth the price.

I also like the fact that the editor clarifies several myths about Edgar Allan Poe, myths that I have always heard about him since a child. This is a great book about Poe and his oeuvre.

2.0 su 5 stelle Horrible Production 12 agosto 2008
Di Richard Desimone - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I just re-read the 5-star review of this book after finishing the steps required a refund. I don't normally write reviews despite purchasing 3-4 books per month from Amazon but this book is so poorly produced and the contrary to the 5-star review that I must say something. First off, the literature is great, that's without question. However, the excellent artwork that typically accompanies these poems and stories is an absolute abomination. No care whatsoever was made in the making of this "handsome book" (I'm quoting the 5-star reviewer) and that includes the printing. All the images seem to be low resolution 72dpi images grabbed from the web, I wish I were kidding. Some are even stretched horizontally to fit a desired space within the page layout. An illustrated portrait comes to mind as it looked as if one was staring into a funhouse mirror. I was SO looking forward to this book for the literature AND the amazing artwork of Clarke, Dore, etc. You can imagine my shock when receiving this tome and seeing such poor presentation. For example, back in the day, Dore's illustrations were made into engravings (high contrast black and white images) with exquisite line work so they'd be suitable for printing. In this book, the images are so pixelated and the printing so cheap that the engravings are blurry masses of choppy gray tones. The amateurishly photo-shopped low resolution cover of this book was a red flag but for the price I thought I'd take a chance on this book as it seemed a good value. I suppose it is if you want all of Poe's stories in on place this book is worthwhile but damn, this book is hard to look at especially if you're a fan of art. It earns 2 stars because the literature is great but brought down by the extremely poor production. The publisher should be ashamed...buyer beware.
