Ligeia is a short story written by Edgar Allan Poe and first published in 1838. Ligeia is widely considered to be one of the top 100 greatest books of all time. This great novel will surely attract a whole new generation of readers. For many, Ligeia is required reading for various courses and curriculum's. And for others who simply enjoy reading timeless pieces of classic literature, this gem by Edgar Allan Poe is highly recommended.

Ligeia by Edgar Allan Poe is disjointed. It reads like the author was on a bad trip.  The novel is very descriptive but I found it a bit disconcerting. I also kept picturing Mr. Rochester’s crazy first wife in the attic.
