The Annotated Poe by Edgar Allan Poe
With color illustrations and photographs throughout, The Annotated Poe contains in-depth notes placed conveniently alongside the tales and poems to elucidate Poe's sources, obscure words and passages, and literary, biographical, and historical allusions. Like Poe's own marginalia, Hayes's marginal notes accommodate "multitudinous opinion" he explains his own views and interpretations as well as those of other writers and critics, including Poe himself. In his Foreword, William Giraldi provides a spirited introduction to the writer who produced such indelible masterpieces as "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," and "The Black Cat."
