The latest volume in the definitive edition of Poe's nonfictional writings presents a fully annotated record of his contributions between March, 1835 and January, 1837 (and later), to Thomas Willis White's Richmond, Virginia journal "The Southern Literary Messenger", a publication which Poe's efforts helped bring to prominence in both the South and the North.The folio-sized book establishes, for the first time, the canon of Poe's writings in this period, correcting many previous errors, particularly those deriving from the Harrison edition of 1902. It sheds new light on the sources of Poe's fiction, and demonstrates him to have been an earnest, sincere, and intelligent spokesman for a liberated and independent corps of critics concerned both with the emerging literature of America and the rest of the world.
