The Oxford Handbook of Edgar Allan Poe

Edited by J. Gerald Kennedy and Scott Peeples

Oxford Handbooks

  • Throws new light on Poe's integral involvement in antebellum print culture and his ultimate impact on subsequent literature, art, and film.
  • Featuring 45 articles by leading scholars in the field, this new collection of essays on Poe possesses an unprecedented breadth of scope.
  • This Handbook projects a diversity of critical positions, capturing deeply human aspects of Poe's experience, such as his fascination with "perverseness" and his surprisingly modern conception of the universe, the mind, and the body.
