    F+W Media 2007; US$ 14.95

    The genius and orphan son of itinerant actors, Poe led a tragic life and suffered greatly?as much at his own hands as those of Fate. Yet tragedy never stopped him from writing: poems, short stories, literary journalism, and even creating a new genre, the detective story?a contribution so great that the most prestigious writing award for crime fiction,... more...

  • The Tell-Tale Artby Christine A. Jackson

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2011; US$ 40.00

    Greed and guilt, near-indecipherable codes, murder plots born of madness--these motifs drive the best modern mysteries, but they are rooted in the early nineteenth century and the carefully constructed fiction of Edgar Allan Poe.

    LSU Press 2012; US$ 24.95

    Never in its long history has the South provided an entirely comfortable home for the intellectual.

  • Resisting Historyby Barbara Ladd

    LSU Press 2007; US$ 17.95

    In a major reinterpretation, Resisting History reveals that women, as subjects of writing and as writing subjects themselves, played a far more important role in shaping the landscape of modernism than has been previously acknowledged. Here Barbara Ladd offers powerful new readings of three southern writers who reimagined authorship between World War... more...

  • Inhabiting Contemporary Southern and Appalachian Literatureby Casey Clabough

    University Press of Florida 2012; US$ 74.95

    The idea of place--any place--remains one of our most basic yet slippery concepts.

Casey Clabough?s thorough examination of the importance of place in southern literature examines the works... more...

  • A Survey of Multicultural San Francisco Bay Literature, 1955-1979by Brian Flota

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2009; US$ 159.95
