Man. This was a struggle. The last several hundred pages (400) were just hard. I think at one point I was ready to call for a DNF, but since this is on my horror list read I wanted to finish it. Now I just feel stabby. So Poe did write some great works (The Tell-Tale Heart, The Fall of the House of ...

This is probably pretty essential stuff. He isn't the most consistent ever. There are lots of duds in here (well, not duds, but duds in comparison to the best stories here...it's hard to say that any one story is terrible or totally uninteresting).
