  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: We are dedicating this issue to Richard Wilbur who, when given the opportunity to write an introduction to any poet's work for the Laurel Poetry Series, chose Poe. Here is what Wilbur had to say about this choice when I interviewed him fifteen years ago:There were various other poets I could have chosen to edit, but I did feel that, in the case of Poe, I had had a kind of personal experience of him, and I felt—it's hard to put this without seeming to brag—but I felt that I had had a special experience of him and seen into him to a degree that the critics I had encountered had not done. I'm really not in favor of the kind of critical pride that makes one claim to be the elected interpreter of somebody—but the way ... Read More

  • An Undergraduate Interviews Richard Wilbur (April 1959)
    • Abstract: In 1959 Richard Wilbur paid a visit to the campus of Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia, while I was a senior undergraduate at the time. Before his reading, he kindly agreed to sit with me for an interview. It was taped on April 13 and has not been published before now. The interview captures Wilbur when he was at a midpoint in his career and was beginning to receive the recognition that his poetry richly deserved. Just a few years earlier he had won both the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and the National Book Award for his volume Things of This World (1956). He had also contributed lyrics to the Leonard Bernstein stage musical Candide, although it had not succeeded on its first time out in 1956. Later ... Read More

  • Poe and the Art of Painting: Tales to Be Seen—the First Spanish
           Illustrated Edition
    • Abstract: Critics have long acknowledged Poe's mastery of the art of painting with words, a recognition that began during his lifetime. In 1839, when Philadelphia publishers Lea and Blanchard published Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, the journalist John Frost asserted the following: "As a writer of fiction, Mr. Poe passes 'from grave to gay, from lively to severe,' with an ease and buoyancy not less remarkable than the unfailing vigor of his style and prodigious extent of his resources for illustration and embellishment."1 In fact, Poe—probably more than any other writer of his time—was immensely aware of the impact of illustrations and of the relationship between the art of writing and the art of painting.2 One of his ...

  • M. Manet Declines to Illustrate the Invisible
    • Abstract: D. G. Rossetti's disgusted reaction to the set of lithographs that Édouard Manet prepared to accompany Stéphane Mallarmé's 1875 translation of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" (1845) may be understood in terms of a difference of principle: that between the fidelity, sympathy, and effort of self-subordination required of an illustrator (Rossetti) and the impatience with decorum, the indifference to incongruities of a literary order, and the license given to a fundamentally alien way of seeing that Manet's artistic response to the poem reveals. When the merely abusive parts of Rossetti's denunciation are removed (e.g., "a French idiot"),1 the gravamen of his objection can be found in the double-edged charge of lunacy ... Read More

  • The Color of Amontillado: The Influence of Blackface Minstrelsy in "The
           Cask of Amontillado"
    • Abstract: A great deal of scrutiny has been devoted to the background and historical context of "The Cask of Amontillado," Edgar Allan Poe's well-known tale of the dish best served cold. Some of the major studies include examining the difference in wealth between Montresor and Fortunato as one of the reasons for the animosity between the two;1 using "specific details of plot, character, and imagery" to relate the tale to popular culture;2 and linking the story to the "War of the Literati," Poe's very public feud with Hiram Fuller and Thomas Dunn English, which played out in the press through a series of traded insults and attacks on each other's character.3 This conflict was raging while Poe was writing "The Cask of ...

  • The Science of Psychopathy and Poe's "The Man of the Crowd"
    • Abstract: "Psychopathy" was not a term used in 1840 when Edgar Allan Poe published his short story "The Man of the Crowd" in Atkinson's Casket and Burton's Gentleman's Magazine.1 The term describes a person who lacks empathy and the capacity to feel remorse and regret; a person who engages in risky, reckless, and manipulative behavior, and acts with deceit to better themselves regardless of the consequences inflicted on others. Because psychopathy did not exist in Poe's time as a term, disorder, or diagnosis, it risks anachronistic application. The psychological phenomenon is not altogether new, however; its conceptual ancestor is found in nineteenth-century theories on "moral insanity": the idea that dangerous and violent ... Read More

  • Poe's Unity of Effect Called into Question: Revisiting Cortázar's
           Translation of "The Tell-Tale Heart"
    • Abstract: In the Hispanic literary world, the translations of Edgar Allan Poe's work by Argentine writer Julio Cortázar (1914–1984) in the mid-1950s still rank among the most respected. In the ensuing decades, the literary prestige of Cortázar as a novelist and short story writer helped to secure the reputation of his Poe translations, which soon came to be regarded as canonical texts. The publication of Translated Poe,1 a comprehensive study of the translations and interpretations of Poe's oeuvre across cultures, prompted Poe reviewers to reexamine the Spanish translations of his fiction and poetry. The editors, Emron Esplin and Margarida Vale de Gato, acknowledged that Julio Cortázar's versions "remain the most well-known ... Read More

  • If Bird or Devil: Meta-Plagiarism in "The Raven"
    • Abstract: Poe's last five years were both the most successful and the most bewildering of his career. By 1845 he had been adopted as the champion and mouthpiece of a nationalist literary movement called Young America. As Meredith McGill has explained, his appointment to this role resulted largely from a single effusive essay about Poe written by James Russell Lowell and published in both Graham's and the New York Evening Mirror.1 Lowell's essay declares Poe "the most discriminating, philosophical, and fearless critic upon imaginative works who has written in America,"2 and the Young Americans—Everett Duyckinck, Cornelius Matthews, and Charles Briggs among them—apparently saw little enough reason to disagree (McGill, 272–73). ...

  • A New Poe Letter—to Nicholas Biddle
    • Abstract: A previously unrecorded Poe letter has been located in the Nicholas Biddle Papers in the Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress. The letter to Biddle, dated June 7, 1836, was among the several Poe sent out to prospective contributors to the Southern Literary Messenger on or near this date, requesting contributions—"any spare scrap in your port-folio"—for "a number of the Journal consisting altogether of articles from distinguished Americans whose names may give weight and character to the work." Other known recipients of this request include Robert M. Bird (Letter 65), James Fenimore Cooper (Letter 66), Fitz-Greene Halleck (Letter 67), Washington Irving (Letter 67a), John Pendleton Kennedy (Letter 68) ... Read More

  • Poe's Doings of Gotham: A Note on Charles Sealsfield
    • Abstract: When Poe moved to New York in April 1844 in order to start a new life with his wife and his mother-in-law, he came with only four and a half dollars, and he had to borrow three dollars in order to survive in this big city. Fortunately, his financial situation soon grew better, at first because of the publication of "The Balloon-Hoax" but soon afterward on account of his collaboration with the Columbia Spy, a journal published in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. He had agreed to write a weekly contribution. He wrote seven in all; the sketches, primarily chronicling current events in New York between May 17 and June 25, 1844, were later published as Doings of Gotham: Poe's Contributions to the Columbia Spy, collected by ...

  • Poe: Stories and Poems by Gareth Hinds (review)
    • Abstract: Edgar Allan Poe's work has been a perennial favorite for adaptation, ranging from literary reimaginings to feature films and even inspiring the television series The Following (2013–15), in which a detective tracks down a murderer inspired by Poe and his writing. Poe allusions abound in popular culture, from The Simpsons to South Park, as the author remains a cultural touchstone for the mysterious and macabre. Graphic novels have also proven a fruitful medium for adapting Poe, with the combination of text and image creating new opportunities for envisioning and imagining Poe's work. Some of these graphic novels adapt a single story, like Matthew K. Manning and Jim Jimenz's The Fall of the House of Usher, which is ... Read More

  • Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven: A Graphic Novel by Duncan Long (review)
    • Abstract: For his graphic novel version of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven," Duncan Long chose to illustrate Poe's most famous poem in black and white rather than color—a good choice. One Amazon reviewer, for instance, calls the graphic novel "moody, artistic and provocative." The cover of the book (which is also available as a Kindle edition for $2.99) features a raven sitting on a tree branch against the backdrop of a mist-obscured moon, and the very first page of the work features a lonely house in silhouette against the gray and white moon—appropriate accompaniment for the opening words of the poem: "Once upon a midnight dreary …" (1). Dead trees surround the house, contributing to the dreariness of the scene, and ... Read More

  • Poe in Cyberspace: A Twentieth Birthday Party
    • Abstract: In the spring of 1998 an item awkwardly titled "Electronic Poe News, #1" appeared in the PSA Newsletter. It quickly became "Poe in Cyberspace" in what is now the Edgar Allan Poe Review. Today, in the spring of 2018, we can celebrate its twentieth anniversary by considering some memorable moments of Poe's cyber past, present, and future.From our vantage point of today, the internet of 1998 seems almost unrecognizable. One-third of the U.S. population still used telephone dial-ups to get on the internet, and while some users benefited from a high-frequency DSL line, others once plugged their telephone handset directly into a three-hundred-baud modem to get an acoustical connection. On the early internet, it often was ... Read More

  • Poe Studies Association Updates
    • Abstract: By the time this note appears, I will have become the immediate past president of the PSA. I need, therefore, to thank the members of the executive committee for working with me over the past two years. During this time, we redesigned, updated, and moved the PSA website; created the new J. Lasley Dameron Award for the best Poe bibliography or edited collection; shored up the Patrick F. Quinn Award fund; and continued to sponsor panels at MLA and ALA. During 2018 the PSA will support the Edgar Allan Poe Spanish Association's first conference and cosponsor the Poe and Hawthorne conference in Kyoto. The next international Poe conference will take place in Boston in 2021, and I hope to be involved in planning this ... Read More

  • Abstracts for the Poe Panels at the American Literature Association
           Conference
    • Abstract: One of the most interesting topics that comes up when teaching Poe in Brazil is his influence on Machado de Assis's works, especially his translation of "The Raven" published in 1883 in the newspaper Gazeta de Notícias. In this translation, Machado intentionally imitated Baudelaire's mistakes in "Le Corbeau" as a way to criticize European intermediation in Brazil at that time. Three years after publishing the translation, Machado emulated Poe in a short story titled "Só!" ("Alone!"). Included in its first paragraph is a quote from Poe's "The Man of the Crowd."Recently translated into English by Greicy Pinto Bellin and Ana Lessa-Schmidt, "Alone!" shows us the ways Machado emulated Poe in his search for literary ...

  • Richard Wilbur
    • Abstract: We mourn the loss of Richard Wilbur, poet, gentle man, and Poe scholar. "Wilbur died on October 14, 2017, in Belmont, M.A., with his family by his side, according to friend and fellow poet, Dana Gioia" (Houston Chronicle, Associated Press). He is survived by his children Christopher, Ellen, Nathan, and Aaron, as well as three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.A World War II veteran, Richard Wilbur, or Dick, as he was called by friends and neighbors, was trained as a cryptographer by the U.S. Army, and according to his short bio at Modern American Poetry, "Youthful engagements with leftist causes caught the attention of federal investigators … and he was demoted to a front-line infantry position where he saw ...
