Alone

by Edgar Allan Poe
Illustrated by Edmund Dulac
Alone, by Edmund Dulac


FROM childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved I loved alone.
Then—in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life—was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Madness (Hardcover)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Edgar Allan Poe, Gris Grimly

A sweet little cat drives a man to insanity and murder….
The grim death known as the plague roams a masquerade ball dressed in red….
A dwarf seeks his final revenge on his captors….
A sister calls to her beloved twin from beyond the grave….
Prepare yourself. You are about to enter a world where you will be shocked, terrified, and, though you’ll be too scared to admit it at first, secretly thrilled. Here are four tales — The Black Cat, The Masque of the Red Death, Hop-Frog, and The Fall of the House of Usher — by the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe. The original tales have been ever so slightly dismembered — but, of course, Poe understood dismemberment very well. And he would shriek in ghoulish delight at Gris Grimly’s gruesomely delectable illustrations that adorn every page. So prepare yourself. And keep the lights on.
