About the book:

Edgar Allan Poes works, with their gothic and often obsessive themes, have had a significant influence on American literature.

In this Norton Critical Edition, G. R. Thompson has fully introduced, annotated, and edited each text.

Backgrounds and Contexts includes fifty-seven carefully chosen documents that illuminate Poes prolific but short career, among them reviews, prefaces, and correspondence by Poe as well as thematic pieces dealing with Transcendentalism and alternative romanticism, sciences of the mind, sensation fiction, and the South and slavery.

Fourteen judiciously selected critical essays address Poes poetry, fiction, politics, and psychology. Contributors include Floyd Stovall, Robert C. McLean, Richard Wilbur, James W. Gargano, Joseph J. Moldenhauer, Paul John Eakin, Grace Farrell, Liahna Klenman Babener, Barton Levi St. Armand, Joseph N. Riddel, J. Gerald Kennedy, John Carlos Rowe, Terence Whalen, and John T. Irwin.

A Selected Bibliography is also included.
