Edgar Allan Poe was an oddity: his life, literature, and legacy are all, well, odd. In Poe-Land, J. W. Ocker explores the physical aspects of Poe s legacy across the East Coast and beyond, touring Poe s homes, examining artifacts from his life locks of his hair, pieces of his coffin, original manuscripts, his boyhood bed and visiting the many memorials dedicated to him. Along the way, Ocker meets people from a range of backgrounds and professions actors, museum managers, collectors, historians who have dedicated some part of their lives to Poe and his legacy. Poe-Land is a unique travelogue of the afterlife of the poet who invented detective fiction, advanced the emerging genre of science fiction, and elevated the horror genre with a mastery over the macabre that is arguably still unrivaled today."

Edgar a Poe - Eureka Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Eureka: A Prose Poem [To the few who love me and whom I love - to those who feel rather than to those who think - to the dreamers and those who put faith in dreams as in the only realities - I offer this Book of Truths, not in its character of Truth-Teller, but for the Beauty that abounds in its Truth; constituting it true. To these I present the composition as an Art-Product alone: - let us say as a Romance; or, if I be not urging too lofty a claim, as a Poem. What I here propound is true: - therefore it cannot die: - or if by any means it be now trodden down so that It die, it will "rise again to the Life Everlasting." Nevertheless it is as a Poem only that I wish this work to be judged after I am dead.] It is with humility really unassumed - it is with a sentiment even of awe - that I pen the opening sentence of this work: for of all conceivable subjects I approach the reader with the most solemn - the most comprehensive - the most difficult - the most august.

Facts in the Case of E. A. Poe Valancourt Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'The book is a bravura performance, exhibiting the virtuosity that has lit up all Sinclair's work.' - C.P. Snow, Financial Times 'This is a rich and satisfying hybrid work - part fiction and part biography. Its hold on the reader stems, at least in part, from its use of one of the most successful of literary formulae: the quest. It was this structure which gave A.J.A. Symons's The Quest for Corvo such hypnotic appeal.... Mr Sinclair's insights, credited to Pons, are those of a distinguished novelist. He intuitively perceives the relationship between Poe's life and work, anatomising it in witty and sometimes brilliant prose.' - Paul Ableman, Spectator 'Clever, macabre, spellbinding, The Facts in the Case of E. A. Poe is Andrew Sinclair's brilliant combination of biography and fiction, taken to the limits of the united genre.... [T]he result is a strangely disturbing and powerfully revealing piece of literature, one Poe himself - if sober - might have genuinely approved.' - Houston Post '[E]xtremely clever and enjoyable, and one that Poe might himself have appreciated. Mr. Sinclair's dovetailing of Poe's life and Pons's reflections is so smoothly done, and his narrative touch so delicate, that those who know nothing of Poe's sad story are likely to be held as firmly as those familiar with it.... The ghost of Poe can have inspired few more entertaining or ingenious books.' - Julian Symons, New York Times 'Sinclair is one of our most intelligent novelists, and The Facts in the Case of E. A. Poe is a book full of wit, thought and perception - an ingeniousness of composition which the author of "The Raven" might have himself approved.' - The Scotsman 'The book (bionovel? autofictography? madnessscript?) turns out to be a thoroughly absorbing read. The use of an eccentric fictional biographer like Pons gives the "real" biographer, Sinclair, the freedom to indulge in amusingly wild flights of speculative fancy which he would no doubt have suppressed in a more conventional work.' - The Listener Ernest Albert Pons is a Holocaust survivor with an unusual coping mechanism: he lives in the delusion that he is, in fact, Edgar Allan Poe. His psychiatrist Dupin (chosen because he shares a name with Poe's fictional detective) has a radical idea for treatment: Pons must see for himself that he is not Poe by retracing the poet's steps and writing an analysis of his life. As Pons pursues Poe from his childhood and university years in Virginia to his adult life in New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, we gradually learn the secrets of both men's pasts. But when Pons begins to suspect Dupin may be engineering an elaborate scheme to kill him, is it just another part of his delusion, or is Dupin plotting a macabre twist worthy of Poe? A wholly unique book that manages to blend seamlessly a page-turning mystery with an important work of Poe criticism and biography, The Facts in the Case of E. A. Poe (1979) was widely acclaimed on its initial publication and returns to print in this new edition, which includes a new introduction by Andrew Sinclair.

Sailing the Good Ship Albion on the Way to Arcady. Is Peter Doherty a Romantic Poet? GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, Humboldt-University of Berlin, language: English, abstract: Peter Doherty is a poet of today whose form of expression is music. Devoting himself to being a "popstar [as well as] performance poet" (Doherty, Books of Albion 9), he is subject to extensive media coverage as a celebrity (cf. 262), on the one hand meticulously vituperated by the tabloid press for his junkie rocker lifestyle (cf. 141; Hannaford 158), on the other hand glorified as "a folk hero" (168), a "legend" (B Libertines 0:09:12) who "has come to epitomise British rock 'n' roll [...] as both pariah and idol" (Hannaford 3), "a true romantic with a God-given gift for melody and verse" (Pomphrey qtd. in 258) and even further as "the last of the Rock Romantics" (5).§§Peter Doherty certainly shares poetic doctrines with English Romantic poetry. Nonetheless, his public presentation and depiction as a Romantic, be it by himself or by the media, must also be taken into account. It is neither without significance nor reason that he is declared a Romantic on account of his philosophy (cf. Hannaford 229), lifestyle (cf. 231) and "self-destruction" (Anonymous Fan qtd. in 330), just as his own frequent referencing and citing of the Romantic poets (cf. From Albion to Shangri-La 178), the placement of these in relation to Doherty by others (cf. B Libertines 0:08:46-0:09:19) and overall his depiction as well as self-depiction in interviews, books and in his published diaries. The question that therefore evidently arises is: Subjected to a lyric analysis, can Peter Doherty be termed a Romantic poet?§§Bearing in mind Pattison's words that "rock has endowed the conventions of Romanticism with popular life" (38) and Hannaford's that Doherty has "revived the notion of the rockstar as intellectual and as romantic troubadour" (227), this bachelor paper will aim to answer this question by firstly providing a definition of English Romantic poetry and a justification as to why popular rock music can be considered heir to Romantic poetry, then by examining the depiction and perception of Doherty as a Romantic public persona and distinguishing this from his poetic doctrines that resemble those of the Romantic poet, Albion and Arcady. These two themes will be examined and put into literary context, whereupon the second part of this paper will comprise the lyric analysis of four of Doherty's songs with regard to the literary attributes that define Romantic poetry. Finally, a conclusion of all that has been found will close the paper, delivering an answer to the stated question.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Cologne (Englisches Seminar II), course: American Mysteries - Detective Fiction in the U.S., 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Only the one, who looks for wisdom, but does not declare to be the one who has already found it can call himself a wise man. Especially in our present world this quote from Seneca, who lived at the beginning of the first century, is more and more proven to be true. Most of all the field of religion is affected by these words. Long time the church declared to know the absolute and unmistakable truth of our world. But today our science-stamped knowledge more and more disproves many dogmas spread by the church. Yet, religion is not the only field where this quote can be employed. Also in our daily activities and lives, people who overestimate their knowledge and capabilities normally never reach their aims. This does not always has to do with arrogance. Sometimes people simply think that what they know and do has to be right or perfect because it is what the mass would think or do. But in most cases it is better to think before acting, to be different from the mass, especially to think different to achieve things, the mass would not be able to achieve. No quote would be more appropriate for Edgar Allen Poe s story The Purloined Letter, than that from Seneca.. Only the Detective Dupin, who is looking for the truth is able to find it, because he does not underestimate the gifts of his enemy. He does not think of himself to be a wise man but he thinks himself to be clever. And this is a gift which is sometimes more important than being wise. Poe constructs his hard-boiled detective story round just one very crucial object a letter. A letter that influences the people possessing it, using it. This document can be regarded as the main actor in the story. For this reason this paper s aim is to analyse the role of the letter as it is only a sheet of paper, and at the same time more than just a sheet of paper. Its influence an significance in regard to text structure, construction of characters and course of the story will be examined. All this will be looked at with a constant connection to the philosophical and psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Derrida and Jacques Lacan. Especially Lacan s interpretations will be discussed, as he was occupied with Poe s story in his Seminar on The Purloined Letter . The final summary shall bundle the gained information to a logical minimum and draw some conclusions from it.

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3 (A), Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (American Studies), course: Edgar Allan Poe, 21 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: small print , abstract: The Masque of the Red Death first appeared in May 1842 in Graham s Magazine. It is generally grouped together with three other of Poe s stories, namely King Pest , which first appeared in the Southern Literary Messenger in September 1835, The Cask of Amontillado , published in Godey s Magazine and Lady s Book 33 in 1846, and Hop-Frog , published in The Flag of Our Union in 1849. Since all these stories take place dur-ing the carnival season, they are called The Masquerades . §In her book The Life and Works of Edgar Allan Poe. A Psycho-Analytic Interpretation , Marie Bonaparte takes a Freudian approach to Poe s stories, Sigmund Freud himself wrote the preface, and claims that all the above tales are connected to Poe s father com-plex [Bonaparte; 507]. In her interpretation of The Masque of the Red Death , the figure of the Red Death is an incorporation of the father who returns to punish the son.§This is just one reading of the story. Much has been published about The Masque of the Red Death , one of Poe s most read tales. Scholars have tried to find its roots, like Burton R. Pollin, who assumes that Poe used his own Shadow A Parable as a source for The Masque of the Red Death . Others attempted to compare the story of Prince Prospero and his followers to other great works of art, for example Christopher Brown, who saw parallels between The Masque of the Red Death and Henry James s The Portrait of a Lady. A lot of research has also been done on the narrator of the tale I will only elabo-rate on the most plausible theories on who it is that is telling this tale. Equally important, The Masque of the Red Death is said to contain one of the most exact definitions of the grotesque in the literary sense.§Finally, as almost all of Poe s tales, The Masque of the Red Death , too, contains an in-credible amount of symbolism. Everything from the significance of blood over the impor-tance of the number seven in mysticism to the meaning of colors can be traced in this tale, which must also be read as an allegory and a memento mori.

Baltimore, 1849. The body of Edgar Allan Poe has been buried in an unmarked grave. The conclusion that Poe was a second-rate writer who died a drunkard is accepted by all. But none of this deters Quentin Clark, an ardent admirer who risks his own career and reputation in a passionate crusade to salvage Poe's. Clark discovers that Poe's last days are riddled with vital unanswered questions. But just when Poe's death looks destined to remain a mystery, Quentin seeks out the one person who can solve this strange case: the real-life model for Poe's brilliant fictional detective character, C. Auguste Dupin. Having successfully recruited the man he believes to have inspired Poe's Dupin, Clarke is confronted by another claiming to be the true model. The two master detectives each seek to prove he is the real 'Dupin' by solving the mystery of Poe's death. Clark finds himself enmeshed in sinister machinations involving international political agents, a female assassin, the corrupt Baltimore slave trade and the lost secrets of Poe's final hours. With his own future hanging in the balance, he must turn master investigator himself to unchain his now imperilled fate from that of Poe.

Estonian literature in its written form is little more than a century old. As Estonia was part of the Russian Empire, then of the Soviet Union, it is something of a miracle that the powerful presence of the Baltic Germans, the periods of Russification, and other more subtle forms of cultural pressure, have not eradicated Estonian as a serious literary language. One of the central figures to credit for this was Friedebert Tuglas. The nine stories, and the essay, featured here were written during the World War One, or in the first years of Estonian independence in the early 1920s. They reflect the troubled spirit of the times, but exhibit the influence of a wide selection of writers, ranging from O. Wilde and M. Gorky, to F. Nietzsche and Edgar Allan Poe. The subject matter of Tuglas' stories represented here ranges from a starving prisoner, via a luckless pharmacist's hallucinations from childhood, a wandering soldier who encounters weird spirits, to a young man sitting in a park, accosted by a devilish lunatic who wants to introduce a new brand of devil worship to the world.
