Description

This book contains Edgar Allen Poe’s 1839 short story, “The Fall of the House of Usher”. One of his most famous and chilling tales, it is the story of an unnamed narrator who is compelled to visit his sickly friend, Roderick Usher. Upon arrival, the narrator realises that Roderick and his sister seem to be suffering from alarming symptoms, which Roderick attributes to house being alive. A gripping and veritably terrifying story, “The Fall of the House of Usher” will not disappoint fans of Poe’s classic horror fiction. 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. Many antiquarian books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
