This collection demonstrates how Poes experience of early nineteenth-century American life fueled his iconoclasm and shaped his literary legacy. Rather than provide critical explications of his writings, each essay explores one aspect of Poes immediate environment, using pertinent writings verse, fiction, reviews, and essays to suit. Examining his geographical, social, and literary contexts, as well as those created by the publishing industry and advances in science and technology, the essays paint an unprecedented portrait of Poes life and times.

Written for a wide audience, the collection will offer scholars and students of American literature, historians, and general readers new insight into Poes rich and complex work.
