‘Edgar Allan Poe: Terror of the Soul’ On View at The Morgan Library

1459211_10152077816191183_2052034360_nThe Morgan Library has organized an exhibit called “Edgar Allan Poe: Terror of the Soul.” The organizers collected almost one hundred items for this display. Visitors will see manuscripts, letters, and literary criticism articles.

In addition to Poe’s own works, this exhibit also explores Poe’s role as an inspiration to other writers including Charles Dickens, Stéphane Mallarmé, and Vladimir Nabokov. A closing date has been set for January 26, 2014. Follow this link to download free eBooks by Poe.

Here’s more about the exhibit: “On view will be such works as Annabel Lee and The Bells in Poe’s own hand; one of the earliest printings of The Raven; the first printing of The Cask of Amontillado; and an unprecedented three copies of Tamerlane, Poe’s earliest published work and one of the rarest books in American literature. Lesser-known writings, including A Reviewer Reviewed—Poe’s never-before-exhibited critique of his own work, written under a pseudonym—and the author’s annotated copy of his last published book, Eureka, provide a more complete picture of this complex writer.”
