Since many of Poe’s works portray the darkness that consumed much of his life we feel it is a great selection to read as we approach October 31st! I would suggest this as a parent/child read as there are some dark themes. As for an age recommendation, my girls were 8 and 9 and enjoyed it very much! - Homeschool Mom
Edgar Allan Poe is a book full of poems that are both scary and exciting. Some are so scary that one time they made me have a nightmare! Some of his poems are not scary but touch your heart.
My favorite poem is “Annabel Lee”. This poem is not scary but is sad and is one of the poems that will touch your heart. The poem that made me have a nightmare is “Eldorado”. It’s about a knight who is trying to find gold and he realized a shadow was following him. You might want to read this one if you like a good scare!
I recommend this book to for ages 7 and up and you might want to read it with your mom or dad. And it is great for anyone who likes poetry! If you decide you might want to read this book, read it around Halloween!
