3.0 out of 5 stars Well intentioned, but nevertheless an insult to Poe's legacy Sept. 28 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The text has numerous typos, and is even missing lines from some of the poems. The illustrations look as if they were ripped from the internet using a cheap, low resolution printer, and the typesetting was dreadful. I did get some small value from this book. For example, I did not know the meaning of the word "nepenthe," which the editor provides (it's a fancy word for "forgetfulness"). And I must admit that I liked how the editor organized the poems by category, as well as the fact that he included the work of some of Poe's colleagues; he also provided a decent presentation of Poe's life and influences. It's a shame, because Poe's work is deserving of a quality annotated edition, and this book is NOT it. I do think the editor had good intentions, and perhaps subsequent printings corrected the errors I mentioned, but I just can't recommend buying this volume. If you're looking for a decent copy of Poe's poetry, I recommend The Raven and Other Poems By Edgar Allan Poe, Illustrated, the 2011 edition published by Fall River Press.
