Edgar Allan Poe is the most famous American writer of the nineteenth century, and yet one of the least understood. Known mainly for this horror stories, he was also a gifted satirist, literary critic, and poet. This course will cover a wide selection of this work in a variety of genres and will engage with the many theoretical issues that Poe seems to raise about literature, aesthetics, and cultural politics. By the latter I refer to the lively recent debates over Poe's treatment of female characters, race, slavery, and capitalism. This course is an advanced seminar aimed at 3rd year BA and MA students.


Texts will be distributed in class.
