THE RAVEN and OTHER POEMS.
by Edgar Allen Poe.
Gloriously illustrated by Gahan Wilson.
OVERVIEW: The Raven, Annabel Lee, Eldorado, The Sleeper, The Haunted Palace, The City in the Sea. These are some of the world’s most fascinating, best-loved poems. Edgar Allan Poe’s verses--masterpieces of mystery, horror, melancholy, and haunting melody--grip the imagination and fuel the emotions. World-famous New Yorker and Playboy cartoonist Gahan Wilson, whose work finds the eerie in the most common of situations, brings the perfect, surreal touch to Poe’s elegantly dark poems.
QUOTES: “NBM [Papercutz parent company], known for its high-quality graphic novels…demonstrates its taste and expertise again with CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED. The Deluxe hardbacks are meant to last, and look good doint it…it’s a joy to see “The Raven,” “The Counquerer Worm,” “Annabel Lee” and other favorites again…Wilson, known primarily for his award-winning New Yorker, Playboy and National Lampoon Cartoons, is also one of a kind - and a perfect choice for this book. His peculiar and sometimes bizarre scribblings are unsettling, and given the subject matter, welcome.”--Andrew Smith, Scripps News
“A terrific compendium… Its a great Poe volume -- the themes of unbearable loss and creeping pestilence are all here, so put it on your Halloween shopping list now.”-Mark London Williams, sfsite.com.
"This match of Poe and Wilson was made in Heaven. Wilsons illustrations are just bizarre and innocent enough to appeal to kids while not dulling the edge of Poes words. I would think the book would be perfect for kids aged maybe 8 - 12 or so. Its a great medium to keep the works of Poe alive! Grade A" -Tim Janson, Mania.com
