5 out of 5 stars This book is essential for any serious study of poe., November 16, 1998

By navymichael@hotmail.com (Washington D.C.)

I highly recommend this book! It is Poe in his own words. This book is a brilliant answer to many off-the-wall interpretations of his theories and life. This book is essential to any serious study of Poe, and certainly for any journalist or writer who wants to read a master at work! Poe was not just a fiction writer. He was the first artist as critic in America's history. This book will allow you to see Poe as a man.
