Bachinger, Katrina 1995 0-7734-1272-7 204 pages This is the first systematic analysis of the seventeen tales of Poe's The Tales of the Folio Club. Before he wrote them, Poe had already established a reputation as a poet, and Lord Byron had influenced him more than any other writer. This close reading demonstrates how the Tales appear to be biographies of Byron in disguises, or even in a sense Byronic autobiographies, because their narrators and heroes often exhibit Byron's idiosyncratic mannerisms. The Tales prove to be seamless continuations of Poe's poetry, and major intertexts of Byron's life and works.
Tipper, Karen Sasha Anthony 2016 1-4955-0518-9 64 pages Examines the parallel lives, beliefs, and artistic principles of Charles Baudelaire and Edgar Allan Poe, with an analysis of representative verse of Poe from the viewpoint of Baudelaire as he undertook the task of artistic comparison. There is no denying, however, that both men did indeed possess superior analytical minds, extensive knowledge, and an extraordinary vocabulary, and in describing Poe Baudelaire could have been describing himself.
Bachinger, Katrina 1987 0-7734-0552-6 140 pages Contends that Poe's use of Byron as antagonist was an example of the fragmentation of character -- using reflections of Byron as seen by himself, by Poe, by his adulators and defamers -- for literary effect. Besides "William Wilson," also discusses "The Fall of the House of Usher," "Metzengerstein," and others.
Scholnick, Robert 2018 1-4955-0695-9 140 pages Dr. Scholnick argues that Poe recognized that 'science" was not a unitary endeavor. Like Shelley, who was influenced by Erasmus Darwin and Hawthorne among others, Poe understood that science was inherently political, and he wrote critically of the famous Bridgewater Treatises, which were commissioned in Britain in the 1830s to demonstrate God's continuing providence. The radical tradition enabled Poe to separate himself from the dominant assumptions of natural theology of his time about such matters as Special Creation and the Fixity of Species.
Spedaliere, Jody 2017 1-4955-0527-8 124 pages This work demonstrates how Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson utilized postmodern literary devices in constructing their poetry and why, therefore, they should be considered the first postmodern poets. It demonstrates how Poe and Dickinson are not merely influences on postmodern poets, but they should be considered postmoderns based on their use and implementation of postmodern literary devices.
Gonzalez-Moreno, Fernando 2017 1-4955-0569-3 312 pages One of main aims of Poe's narrative and poetry is to create powerful and suggesting pictures in the mind of the reader.
