Describes the personal and professional life of the master of the horror behind "The Raven," "The Tell-Tale Heart," and other classic works, including a discussion of his rocky relationship with his wealthy adoptive father and his time spent working as an editor and reviewer.
Today the name Edgar Allan Poe invokes a tragic genius whose mastery of horror seems inexorably tied to his tormented life. But in his own time, Poe was above all a craftsman--an editor and reviewer desperately trying to earn a living by transmuting the wild ephemera of early Victorianism into innovations in science fiction, horror, and detective literature. Indeed, the crime thriller would not exist without Poe's sleuth Dupin, the deductive genius of "Murders in the Rue Morgue" and "The Purloined Letter."
With brilliant scholarship and storytelling verve, Paul Collins delves into Poe's life and his professional world, from his stormy relationship with his rich adoptive father and interest in cryptograms to hits such as "The Raven" and flops like "Eureka, " his late-career crank literature outing. "Edgar Allan""Poe "is an informative and supremely entertaining account of one of the most singular talents in American letters.
