What's in a name?

Edgar Allan Poe explores the notion of identity in the first of five stories from the incomparable author.

In a writing career that spanned barely two decades (he died in his 41st year) the American penned over 70 short stories. These he incessantly revised over the years and many became standards of the short form (like ‘The Fall Of The House of Usher’ or ‘The Pit and the Pendulum’).

But for our five fictional tales, we burrow down amongst Poe’s lesser-known, and often dark, gems.
