"Tales, " by Edgar Allan Poe, is a collection of 25 stories from the literary father of the mysterious and the macabre. These individual pieces, which include "The Fall of the House of Usher, " and "Silence: A Fable, " together make up the body of both "Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque" and "Tales of the Folio Club." Taken as a whole, Poe's writing has cast its dark and exquisite shadow over many genres of literature, from the mysteries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to the science fiction of Jules Verne, but in this collection the author's ability to explore the darker corners of the readers' psyche comes to the fore. Such is the power of his storytelling that his tales retain their eerie power to delight and terrify in equal measure more than a century and a half after his death.

Joseph Farrell translates this haunting tapestry of fiction and fact, this interplay of texts and voices: the reader assembles the tale, infers the connections and is drawn into the action even as the Baron is, with the confusion of cultural and political loyalties resolving at last in the most basic loyalty: to the cause of the used, exploited and oppressed.
