This compendium offers a unique look at Poe's critical genius, in direct comparison to his *literary* genius. If you've ever read Poe's "Philosophy on Composition", you have an idea of his powerful and indelible technique. Ambroise Valéry, the imminent French philosopher, was quoted as saying, “Poe is the only impeccable writer. He was never mistaken.” This collection of Poe's work is excellent at illustrating his flawless side through extensive (and undoubtedly painstaking) organization of his critiques. This book is a nonfiction representation of Poe, which is a side of him that is tragically missed by many casual readers of his literature. Due to a lack of duality when examining Poe, some of his sheer brilliance is dulled by the pervasive morbidity he proliferated through his work. In Poe: Essays and Reviews, here is ample opportunity to witness his witty, caustic, and intensely logical side.
