Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much remains uncertain about the life of Edgar Allan Poe, the mysterious author of one of the best-known American poems, 'The Raven', the Gothic romance The Fall of the House of Usher, and the first detective fiction, The Murders in the Rue Morgue. This 2008 book provides a balanced overview of Poe's career and writings, resisting the tendency of many scholars to sensationalise the more enigmatic aspects of his life. Benjamin F. Fisher outlines Poe's experiments with a wide range of literary forms and genres, and shows how his fiction evolved from Gothic fantasy to plausible, sophisticated psychological fiction. Fisher makes fruitful connections within this diverse body of work, and offers analyses of the major works. The critical afterlife of Poe's work is charted, and the book includes a guide to further reading, making this a handy starting-point for students and readers new to Poe.

Book News Annotation:

For undergraduate or advance high school students, Fisher (English, U. of Mississippi) provides an overview of American writer Poe (1809-49). After a brief account of his life, he looks at the various dimensions of the context in which he wrote, among them slavery, urban, and existentialist-modernist. Then he examines the poetry, short stories, novels, and criticism. A final chapter considers the reception of his work. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
