Inhaltsangabe: Few authors can claim Edgar Allan Poe's influence on literary and popular culture. During his short and turbulent life, he invented the modern detective story and horror genres with such immortal works as "The Raven", "The Tell-Tale Heart", and "The Pit and the Pendulum". Best known for the haunting melody of his poetry and prose, Poe also wrote numerous critical articles and reviews, essays and magazine articles on a variety of subjects. Drawing from a broad range of sources, such as personal correspondence and reviews, this comprehensive reference covers all of Poe's major works and most minor works. As well as information on Poe's personal life, the entries include synopses of his works, and descriptions of his characters.
From Booklist: More than 3,400 entries chart the life and work of an author whose "Murders in the Rue Morgue" (1841) is often described as the first detective story. Entries are arranged alphabetically and cover works (including essays and reviews as well as poems and tales) and characters. Entries for works contain publishing and dramatization history, a list of characters, and a synopsis of the plot. There is also coverage of people, places, and publications that played a role in Poe's life or helped shape his literary development. The biographical entries treat family, friends, and associates, as well as writers such as Charles Baudelaire, who translated Poe into French, and Washington Irving, considered to have been an influence despite the fact that Poe did not care for his style. Coverage extends into the twentieth century with entries ( Corman, Roger; Price, Vincent) related to film and musical adaptations.
Terms in boldface type serve as cross-references. Following the entries are four appendixes: a chronology of Poe's life, a chronology of his works, a list of Poe research collections, and a bibliography.
This is the latest addition to Facts On File's Literary A to Z series, which offers a wealth of information in volumes that are handsomely designed and easy to use. Recommended for public and academic libraries and for high-school libraries where Poe is part of the curriculum. RBB
