I love Edgar Allen Poe, and I was happy to see a book that focused on his poems as most collections of his works focus mainly on his stories. I was not a fan of how this book was set up. It looked at though it had been pulled out an antique book (which normally I would love!) But, this one looked as though it had been photocopied from another book so the words were blurry to the point of illegibility. His ability to make music from words amazed me the first time I read 'The Raven.

It never ceases to amaze me how returning to a particular work be it written, spoken, performed, or painted provides me with new insight into the work being revisited. When I first heard these recordings back in my college days, I was already a big fan of Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone thanks to various classic horror films including some based on Poe's works. I loved the old Caedmon recordings as they were my introduction to what are now known as audio books. Classically trained actors from another era reciting and relishing the words of celebrated authors was just the thing for an aspiring theater major. Among my favorites, in addition to these Poe stories were Dylan Thomas reading his poetry and Charles Laughton's production of George Bernard Shaw's DON JUAN IN HELL.

By the late 1970s I was reading a lot more than I listened and when I did listen, it was either to classic British folk-rock albums or to classical music which I was just beginning to explore. The Caedmon albums gathered dust and then were accidentally ruined after having been improperly stored. Fast forward 20 years to the 1990s and to the opening of a Barnes & Noble store in my hometown. After heading to the music section to check out the classical recordings, I came across CD versions of the old LPs including this one. I bought several as they were still relatively cheap because they were considered outdated compared to several newer books and voices. I played them a few times, experienced a little nostalgia, and then put them away again but this time more carefully.

Another 20 years has passed and I have just rediscovered them again but with an older adult's perspective. Now this one is an absolute delight as I can savor the vocal inflections utilized by Rathbone & Price. Poe's 19th century prose can be quite florid and he is certainly not the most subtle of writers especially in the stories that made him famous. Some of the poetry is quite a different matter and the philosophy put forth in THE IMP OF THE PERVERSE is truly remarkable and very modern especially in light of recent actions. You need to allow yourself the time and the proper background for listening (in your car or with other distractions is not a proper background). Do that and it's easy to get caught up in R & P's vocal pyrotechnics as well as hear everything they are saying.

Rathbone narrates the lion's share of the writings, 15 in all while Price handles only 5. Basil has a more subdued approach building such stories as FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER and PIT & THE PENDULUM slowly and effectively. Vincent's LIGEIA is practically a parody but his IMP OF THE PERVERSE is masterfully done. Both actors have a wide dynamic range going from a stage whisper to some extremely agitated and powerful utterances making it hard to understand if there is any background noise. It also brings Poe's words to life in a way that many will find overly theatrical which is why I say it isn't for all tastes. No one speaks like this anymore (or writes like this for that matter) but, for me, that's what makes it so special. Now in my 60s, I find it rich & rewarding as I make the time to hang on every word.

I am always eager to find audio of Edgar Allan Poe's poems and stories, so I jumped at the chance when I saw this collection, especially knowing the stories were read by two of the greats, Rathbone and Price. What I noticed with this collection of readings is that it is a mixed bag, and the main problem with the CDs is not the readings or perfomanced by Rathbone or Price, but rather just in the production of making these recordings. For instance, one story, The Tell Tale Heart was wonderfully read and the audio was spot on, but then I came to The Masque of the Red Death and it sounds like Basil Rathbone is reading the story from the bottom of a deep well. The quality is low and murky. So, in this collection, you will find the quality of some stories acceptable, but others not so good. I do like the passion and effort the two actors put into the reading, but somehow it is all lost in the production of this cd.

For the cost of this one, I think it is better to look elsewhere and find a better quality cd.

Wall-up your inferior Edgar Allan Poe collections, brick by brick, and laugh, laugh maniacally! These Library Of America editions are the only volumes that matter.

This book has every short-story, novel (he only completed one: The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket), play and poem that is in known existence. From "William Wilson" to the oft-debated "unfinished" final story "The Light-House", it is all here. Well not ALL of it. For his essays and reviews get the second LOA volume.

The Raven and Annabel Lee: These two poems were my favorites of the Poe Collection and the reason was clear - I'm an impossible romanticist. These two beautiful, sensitive poems resonate with soul-wrenching passion, grief, agony. They play with the mind, they pass the word games around between the subject and the reader; they are designed to be read many times over, searching for one more clue as to their depth of meaning - truly the signature of the master craftsman - the defining moment between talent and genius.

Poe did have that genius, and his imagination took him one step beyond - the emotions of the mind betraying any promise of healing that an aching heart struggled to achieve; the dark, dismal abyss opening beneath, wholly possessing it's victim.

The Raven: Symbolism at it's finest, the "black bird of despair" perches ominously above the door of his psyche, tenaciously haunting every corner of his lonely room; striking down any emerging dim hope of recovery with one firm and final wordstroke, "Nevermore".

He tries valiantly to make sense of it and gain control; he thinks he finally has it, and he cries -
"Desolate, yet all undaunted,
on this desert land enchanted
-on this home by horror haunted
- tell me truly, I implore -
is there - is there balm in Gilead? (**to make the wounded whole)
Tell me, tell me, I implore!"

The Raven fixes him with an unfeeling eye and squashes his glimmer of light once and for all - "it's not going to happen. She is gone, and you will not forget." (Nevermore)

*******

Annabel Lee - much along the same lines as the Raven, it denotes a lover pining for his beautiful lost love, Annabel Lee - her voice is softly alive in the sound of the sea, the beloved face forever passing through the recesses of his mind, ever present, preventing healthier thoughts from prevailing against the power of his mourning. His desire to find her again is all-consuming; his longing bordering on the verge of insanity.

These two poems, open to intense interpretation by each individual reader, were likely born of a personal observation somewhere in his life or in the life of someone close to him, will be the literary objective of the heartseekers theme papers forever.

Well, as I said. I was always somehow taken by the idea of the absolutely unattainable; the impossible tale of sorrow and of faded love.
