“Although born in Boston, Poe has long been considered a genteel Southern writer whose works display a fascination with foreign countries and fantastical places. However, he spent the majority of his literary career working in the northeastern publishing centers of Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City. Is Poe a literary ‘nowhere man,’ an all-American writer, or a prophet of world literature? This collection of insightful essays is a critical mystery tour to the center of Poe’s wonderful planet.” (Takayuki Tatsumi, Professor of English, Keio University, Japan, and author of Young Americans in Literature: The Post-Romantic Turn in the Age of Poe, Hawthorne and Melville (2018) and Full Metal Apache: Transactions between Cyberpunk Japan and Avant-Pop America (2006)) ※Palgrave Macmillan本書サイトより転載
