"Six More Analogues and Resources for Poe"

This listing of analogues and resources for Poe supplements Dameron's previous studies appearing in The University of Mississippi Studies in English, n.s., 9 (1991): 157-66; and n.s., 11-12 (1993-95): 460-64. Here Dameron concentrates his attention (as in earlier studies) on journals--including magazines, newspapers, annuals, and gift-books--of Poe's day. Poe's use of current popular themes in his own work bespeaks, to a degree, his methods and traits as a literary artist. Included is one analogue and/or resource each for the following: "The Bells," "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," "Ulalume--A Ballad," and "William Wilson"; and two for "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar."
