“Poe manages to send the mind spinning off in strange vagaries of thought, to touch as no other writer does the deep-lying apprehensions of his readers even while appealing to a coldly rational element in them. . . . Certainly the volume of writing on Poe justifies a separate publication for the study of the man, his works, his career, his place in his times, and his reputation.” G. Richard Thompson (adapted from his article “The Poe Case: Scholarship and ‘strategy’,” Poe Newsletter, vol. I, no. 1, April 1968, p. 2.)
