Summary The contributors to this volume share the conviction that Poe is central to current work on American culture - and that strictly theoretical approaches to Poe have become increasingly irrelevant. Their essays offer new insights into the complex and unavoidable relations between traditionally literary issues and the broader aspects of a democratic mass culture.
