Editorial Reviews


"The ideas presented in Romancing the Shadow...stand as important additions to the field of Poe studies."--American Studies International

"With nine varied essays, Romancing the Shadow addresses provocatively the vexed topic of Poe and race. With attention to both text and context, the authors of these essays elaborate a range of responses to the subject matter, ably demonstrating the validity of Toni Morrison's view that 'no early American writer is more important to the concept of American Africanism than Poe.'"--Richard Kopley, Pennsylvania State University, DuBois

"The essays included in this volume treat this subject with a variety of historical and theoretical approaches, and no two essays reach the same conclusion. It is a fascinating exercise in professional, critical dialogue, and readers of the volume will learn much. What they will learn will not just concern Poe. The essays in Romancing the Shadow raise provocative questions for American literary studies more generally, questions that go to the heart of our previous and present practice."--Dana Nelson, University of Kentucky
