Summary
Presents a selection of Poe's tales and poems with in-depth marginal notes elucidating his sources, obscure words and passages, and literary, biographical, and historical allusions. Edgar Allan Poe is perhaps America s most famous writer. Yet he remains misunderstood, his works easily confused with the legend of a troubled genius. In this annotated edition of tales and poems, Kevin J. Hayes debunks the Poe myth, enables a larger appreciation of Poe s career and varied achievements, and investigates his weird afterlives."
