Synopsis
During Poe's lifetime a collection of his strange tales was published in 1839 but this did not include some highly regarded tales which were written by him later, including The Murders in the Rue Morgue and A Descent into the Maelstrom.[2] The first posthumous collection of Poe's works was compiled in 1850, and included a memoir from Rufus Wilmot Griswold but this did not confine itself to his tales of suspense and related tales. Several collections of Poe's prose and poetry followed. The precursor to Tales of Mystery and Imagination was a collection of Poe's works entitled Tales of Mystery, Imagination and Humor. This collection was modified by Padric Colum in 1908 in view of the growing reputation of Poe's taste for suspense, especially in the context of what his French critic M. Brunetiere called events "on the margin" of life.[2] This prompted Padric Colum, the Editor of the 1908 London edition, to modify this collection to "Tales of Mystery and Imagination". The original collection, in keeping with its title, deliberately excluded Poe's poems, comedies and essays. In his introduction to the 1908 edition Colum also cites as an additional reason for his selection his opinion that 'tales' as opposed to 'short stories' were so short that they tended to lack descriptions of socially important experiences. Colum hence deliberately left out two works as too lengthy
