Top Ten Stories By Edgar Allen PoeCaptainComedy17
The Top Ten
This is the best story I have ever read. Edgar Allan Poe took the definition of creepy and took it to a whole new level and I love it.
My absolute favorite story of his. I especially like the theme. A madman murders a helpless old man and gets away with it, only to be eaten alive by his own guilt. - Alpha101
they are all great but this one was really awesome - Okami

Captivating and meaningful Poe horror story; easy comprehension with a wealth of deeper meaning.
I think it would have been better if the allegory had been made more clear (you can't escape death).
One of my favorites from tenth grade US lit. After reading it listen to The Doors.

This isn't very scary, but it is debatable whether the guy dies or not.
You guys realise that this is a poem, right?
The man doesn't die, he is a young poet who lost his true love, Lenore, and the Raven is a sight or prophet telling him that the pain and suffering will never end he will have to deal with it his whole life. And Edgar Allan Poe wrote the story when his wife Virginia was dyeing of turboculosis so he knew he would soon be in the same place as his poet from the story
I want to read it over and over againV 2 Comments
Showcasing Edgar's fear of being buried alive, this story of revenge is one of his greatest pieces.
This convoluted vengeance on god's behalf, captivates you and questions you, "are you quite insane? "
It was so twisted yet so simple and interestingV 2 Comments
Hell yeah. I read this story once and I was creeped out by it. I don't get creeped out by most scary stories, but this one had some sort of deathly aura... - Trivium
My favorite short story, mysterious, suspenseful, gross, this story is amazing - CaptainComedy17
Too good. Just too captivating, horrifying, grosteque. Like a roller coaster thriller, except many times better.
Few stories capture the imaginations and are as brilliantly constructed as this one. There are many great Poe stories, but this one in particular in my opinion, is the most brilliantV 1 Comment
The creepiest of all the Poe stories I've read.
Favorite! This and the the fall of the house of user are his best works... besides, of course, his narrative.
This is the scaryest story I have red because of the two black cats
Annabel lee is a beautiful work about the love of two people so strong that even the angels are jealous of them. It isn't creepy but it's beautiful and powerful. It's not only my favorite work by Poe, but also my favorite work of literature in general
Is a true love at first sight kind of poemV 1 Comment
Well what can be more fearsome than the murderer being proved to be non-human!
Number 2 at least... This story was made into an Iron Maiden song. Am I right.
Overrated. Definitely not his best
I LIKE THE STORY OF THE TELL-TALE HEART ITS SCARY HOW EDGAR TRIGGER THE EMOTIONS OF THE READER.. THE BEST STORY I've EVER READ
Epic Tale of Mystery and Magic. Though debatble in some respects e.g satire, it succeeds in maintaining a darkly tragic, yet intelligently sustained atmosphere throughout its duration- perhaps Poe's, fantastic though he is, most common fault
A story of a low-class fiend taking revenge.
this was probably one of the most confusing and creepiest by poe, but I absolutely adored the storyline
Excelent poem! The meaning behind this poem is so much deeper than it seems on the top once you really begin to think about it! Please people, read this poem! - llamabaconllama37
