Read full description of the books:

"Forse qui il vocabolo fiction trova una delle sue massime espressioni, perché la genialità dell'autore Edgar Allan Poe sta nell'affidare al giovane Arthur Gordon Pym la "narrativa" di una vicenda che il signor Pym ha affidato al signor Poe per renderla, da un certo punto in avanti, credibile e digeribile dal grande pubblico. A complicare il tutto, abbiamo la "nota introduttiva" scritta di "proprio pugno" da Pym, il quale, abbiamo il sospetto, abbia affidato un po' troppe delle sue vicende al signor Edgar Allan Poe. (...) Era nel destino di un autore americano essere cinematico: i flashback e i flashforward dei primi capitoli sono cinema - e che cinema - allo stato puro. A volte viene in mente il geniale Christopher Nolan di Memento. Anche nel libro di Poe c'è già tutto: dai punti di vista differenti, alla verità oggettiva, dalle percezioni diverse allo sdoppiamento della psiche... Addirittura Poe/Pym ci dice che per otto giorni non accade nulla di rilevante a bordo del Grampus e invece già si gioca con la memoria perché di cose ne accadono eccome: negando, Poe/Pym afferma e afferma qualcosa di sottilmente e inafferrabilmente unico: afferma che stiamo per cambiare dimensione, stiamo "scendendo nel maelström"..." (Dall'Introduzione di Davide Sapienza)

Read information about the author

Ebook Le avventure di Gordon Pym read Online! The name Poe brings to mind images of murderers and madmen, premature burials, and mysterious women who return from the dead. His works have been in print since 1827 and include such literary classics as The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven, and The Fall of the House of Usher. This versatile writer’s oeuvre includes short stories, poetry, a novel, a textbook, a book of scientific theory, and hundreds of essays and book reviews. He is widely acknowledged as the inventor of the modern detective story and an innovator in the science fiction genre, but he made his living as America’s first great literary critic and theoretician. Poe’s reputation today rests primarily on his tales of terror as well as on his haunting lyric poetry.

Just as the bizarre characters in Poe’s stories have captured the public imagination so too has Poe himself. He is seen as a morbid, mysterious figure lurking in the shadows of moonlit cemeteries or crumbling castles. This is the Poe of legend. But much of what we know about Poe is wrong, the product of a biography written by one of his enemies in an attempt to defame the author’s name.

The real Poe was born to traveling actors in Boston on January 19, 1809. Edgar was the second of three children. His other brother William Henry Leonard Poe would also become a poet before his early death, and Poe’s sister Rosalie Poe would grow up to teach penmanship at a Richmond girls’ school. Within three years of Poe’s birth both of his parents had died, and he was taken in by the wealthy tobacco merchant John Allan and his wife Frances Valentine Allan in Richmond, Virginia while Poe’s siblings went to live with other families. Mr. Allan would rear Poe to be a businessman and a Virginia gentleman, but Poe had dreams of being a writer in emulation of his childhood hero the British poet Lord Byron. Early poetic verses found written in a young Poe’s handwriting on the backs of Allan’s ledger sheets reveal how little interest Poe had in the tobacco business.
