Poe Studies



    Poe Studies: History, Theory, Interpretation provides a forum for dialogue about Edgar Allan Poe's life and writings, and about the cultural and material contexts that shaped the production and reception of his work. The editors wish to define "Poe studies" broadly—to include articles that engage the period in which Poe wrote, writers with whom he was affiliated or whom he inspired, theoretical and philosophical issues raised by his work, and artistic movements associated with him, such as gothicism, detective fiction, symbolism, and metafiction. The journal invites submissions of original articles and notes, welcomes work grounded in a wide range of theoretical and critical perspectives, and encourages inquiries proposing submissions and projects. Feel free to email the editors, Jana L. Argersinger and Leland Person, with comments or queries; or call us at 509-335-8234.

    Poe Studies: History, Theory, Interpretation is now published by Johns Hopkins University Press.
