Crippled with self-blame and resented by her parents, she stumbles through life Told from four-year-old Laura's point of view, this story begins in in a little log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods of Wisconsin.
Laura lives in the little house with her pa, her ma, her sisters Mary and Carrie, and their trusty dog, Jack. Pioneer life is sometimes hard for the family, since they must grow or catch all their own food as they get ready for the cold winter. But it is also exciting as Laura and her family celebrate Christmas with homemade toys and treats, do the spring planting, bring in the harvest, and make their first trip into town.

Nineteenth-century readers were far more likely to know Edgar Allan Poe as "tomahawk man," the writer of trenchant, acerbic literary reviews, than for his ghoulish tales or mesmeric poems. And he went on to demonstrate this same effect in often-tempestuous stints at magazines in Philadelphia and New York.
Drawing from the nearly one thousand essays, articles, reviews, columns, and critical notices published during Poe's 14 years of writing to and sometimes missing deadline, Essays and Reviews is the most complete one-volume edition of his nonfiction work ever published.

Included in this Library of America collection are Poe's reviews and candid opinions of the leading literary figures of his day, including: Hawthorne is purity itself. We have only to object that there is insufficient diversity in these themes. Emerson, I am lost in amazement at finding in him little more than a respectful imitation of Carlyle.
Cooper owes much of his reputation as a novelist to his early occupation of the field? The volume includes more than pages documenting what Poe biographer Kenneth Silverman has called "arguably the longest, strangest, and most-publicized personal war in American literary history.
White aptly selected his review of William Ellery Channing for inclusion in their Subtreasury of American Humor "His book contains about sixty-three things, which he calls poems, and which he no doubt seriously supposes so to be. They are full of all kinds of mistakes, of which the most important is that of their having been printed at all.
Even as he excoriates Channing, Poe parses the strengths and defects of the works of Alfred Tennyson and Thomas Carlyle, among others, and in the process vividly illuminates what makes a poem effective. The volume also features all his major writings on the theory of poetry, the art of fiction, and the duties of a critic: Eliot and Hart Crane. Read more Read less.

Digger's Domain Amazon Reviewer was so helpful with his or her previous reviews and listing of contents for volumes 1 through 4, but he did not get to volume 5, it seems, so here is the listing of the contents of this Poe work: In this final volume of the works of Poe we are at the conclusion of all his literary writings. Needless to say the man to me was a enigma and not surprisingly that there is an under current of a melancholy which accompanies quite a deal of the work throughout the 5 volumes.
Not always macabre in nature but some bits of humor shining though. UN-appreciated in his life, even after death his obituary notice in the New York Times by Griswold is not flattering. But Griswold, we remember Poe but who are you?
I found it interesting that their was a dedication to a published work of his poems as follows One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Some great short stories and interesting essays mixed in with some pieces that were difficult to understand. My main beef was that the essays about poetry left out practically all the passages from the poems that Poe was discussing. However, there's a separate volume I finished after reading this one that has all of Poe's poems, plus his critical essays about poetry.
That volume included the same essays as this one, but with the poetic passages he cites intact. However, there were some problems with that volume too, where the bottoms of some of the pages were cut off. But anyway, both the ebooks were free, so I guess I shouldn't complain. I had downloaded them along with the first four volumes in the collection for free when Amazon was helping promote the movie "The Raven" a few years ago. One person found this helpful.
Who doesn't love Edgar Allan Poe! I don't like to write too much in book reviews because I feel that in order to adequately write a review, I would have to give away information that would be key to plot. I don't like to be the person to give away spoilers. Therefore my book reviews are always very short and only say a few things in order to tell you, book reviews are much to subjective and I never read a book review before I read a book. I read a book based on what the book is about which I don't read a review to get.
If you want more information, buy the book and read it.
