Listen to our student´s voices reading Poe
These audios make part of a preparatory activity for our Book Week which will happen in October and has Edgar Allan Poe as its theme.
Edgar Allan Poe was born on January 19, 1809 in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S and died on October 7, 1849 in Baltimore, Maryland. He was an American short-story writer, poet, critic, and editor who is famous for his cultivation of mystery. His tale “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” (1841) initiated the modern detective story, and the atmosphere in his tales of horror is unrivaled in American fiction. His “The Raven” (1845) numbers among the best-known poems in the national literature.
