Book Description: Nan A. Talese, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 180 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. Gothic, mysterious, theatrical, fatally flawed, and dazzling, the life of Edgar Allan Poe, one of America s greatest and most versatile writers, is the ideal subject for Peter Ackroyd. Poe wrote lyrical poetry and macabre psychological melodramas; invented the first fictional detective; and produced pioneering works of science fiction and fantasy. His innovative style, images, and themes had a tremendous impact on European romanticism, symbolism, and surrealism, and continue to influence writers today. In this essential addition to his canon of acclaimed biographies, Peter Ackroyd explores Poe s literary accomplishments and legacy against the background of his erratic, dramatic, and sometimes sordid life. Ackroyd chronicles Poe s difficult childhood, his bumpy academic and military careers, and his complex relationships with women, including his marriage to his thirteen-year-old cousin. He describes Poe s much-written-about problems with gambling and alcohol with sympathy and insight, showing their connections to Poe s childhood and the trials, as well as the triumphs, of his adult life. Ackroyd s thoughtful, perceptive examinations of some of Poe s most famous works shed new light on these classics and on the troubled and brilliant genius who created them.
