Narrator Jeffrey Combs brings welcome ease and humor to the customarily dark and dreary world of Edgar Allan Poe. With energy, insightful asides, and an enthusiastic live audience hanging on his every word, Combs re-creates a much-less-known Poe persona--that of the sought-after 1840s traveling lecturer. Combs recounts Poe's personal anecdotes about his mother, who was an actress, and his upbringing in Boston, and, of course, reads a few of his perennial favorite works, including "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Raven." One would love to go back in time and hear an original Poe lecture. With Combs's bright and nuanced performance we have the next best thing.
