A mixed bag, just like most of Poe's work. A couple are excellent, and one or two were dull enough to make it hard to finish reading. See my individual review for "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket", which comprises the majority of the volume. In volume 3 of the collected works of Poe we find his novel The Narrative of A.
In the first work the subject matter was for me quite disturbing and the novel ends abruptly. I had to research the book on the internet to find if I was missing the last of it and no, it was meant to be that way, a perfect Alfred Hitchcock ending. I still found the read entertaining and enjoyed it. As with most of Poe's work in general, the focus on the majority of additional stories are the macabre except for The Spectacles which I found rather amusing and had a moral to the story, vanity and Three Sundays in a Week.
None of the other stories really stood out as anything special. Narrative of A. Gordon Pym 2. You could tell Poe had enough of the story himself when he just abruptly ended the story by saying the last chapters were lost view spoiler [and the narrator died hide spoiler ]. Our main character was married to one woman who died and then remarried to a lady who looked completely different.
When she died, in a opium-induced h Narrative of A. When she died, in a opium-induced hysteria, the second appeared as the first. The synopsis sounds better than the story. When she was going to be confirmed, the father decided on the spot to name her after her mother, which lead to a very haunting consequence. I think? This one also had mesmerism and opium in it and things weren't too clear. Napoleon Bonaparte Froissart, with the ancestors Croissart, Voissart, and Moissart, has to change his last name to Simpson to inherit from a distant cousin.
He is vain about his appearance and at a night at the opera spies a beautiful woman, however, this beautiful woman looks very different once he can see with glasses. Pranks and comedy ensues. King Pest 2. A fight breaks out in the tavern where several barrels of ale break and flood the tavern. The sailors kidnap the two women and take them back to the ship.
An average collection; definitely surpassed by the second volume, and a little better than the first. The collection mostly strays away from Poe's gothic style, with a mixture of adventure and humour. The only two gothic pieces, Ligeia and Morella, are the best pieces in this volume; which is the case with most of his works.
It's a mixture of horror, voyage and adventure. Horror did prevail over th An average collection; definitely surpassed by the second volume, and a little better than the first. Horror did prevail over the story, but it was more similar to survival horror, than to gothic horror, that Poe definitely mastered. It was definitely ahead of its time, and did inspire a lot of famous literary pieces after it. However, its level is clearly below the best of his short stories line; it even felt as few short stories linked together rather than a full-length novel, and it probably shows why Poe decided to focus more on short stories.
The last three pieces; The Spectacles, King Pest and Three Sundays in a Week; show an appreciated humorous side of Poe, and are even a bit better than most of his science fiction works yet, they hardly rank even among the average of his other works.
