Summary Kevin Hayes reappraises Edgar Allan Poe's work in the context of nineteenth-century print culture. Beginning with Poe's early exposure to the printed word, and ending with the ambitious magazine and book projects of his final years, this study is part biography, part literary history and part history of the book.
