Although best known for his short stories, Edgar Allan Poe was by nature and choice a poet. From his exquisite lyric 'To Helen' to his immortal masterpieces, 'Annabel Lee' 'The Bells' and 'The Raven' Poe stands beside the celebrated English romantic poets Shelley, Byron, and Keats, and his haunting, sensuous poetic vision profoundly influenced the Victorian giants Swinburne, Tennyson, and Rossetti. This book is carefully illustrated by the famous illustrator and cartoonist William Heath Robinson. William Heath Robinson (1872-1944) is an artist whose work, whether in his well known humorous drawings or his illustrations for Kipling, Shakespeare or children's stories, is integral to British cultural heritage. This book includes among others poems by Poe : "Alone" (1875) "Annabel Lee" (1849) "The Bells" (1849) "The City in the Sea" (1831) "The Conqueror Worm" (1843) "Dream-Land" (1844) "A Dream Within A Dream" (1850) "Eldorado" (1849) "For Annie" (1849) "The Haunted Palace" (1839) "The Raven" (1845) "The Sleeper" (1831) "To The River" (1829) "Spirits of the Dead" (1829) "A Valentine" (1850) "The Valley of Unrest" (1845) and many more poems.

This is a moving and important memoir of a district officer in Northern Rhodesia, from his arrival in the territory in 1944 and through the momentous period leading to Zambian independence. It includes a spell as Kenneth Kaunda's 'gaoler' during which a personal friendship grew up and flourished, and ends with an appointment to the President's Office in post-independence Zambia. It is the story of British colonial administration-the 'daily round' of a district officer's life-the nationalist struggle and the formative period of an independent African state and, most importantly, one of close and enduring friendship.
