From Out That Shadow: the Life and Legacy of Edgar Allan Poe

Celebrating the bicentennial of Edgar Allan Poe, “From Out That Shadow” was created out of a partnership between the Mary and David Harrison Institute of American History, Literature, and Culture and the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia, and the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin. Poet, literary critic, visionary, inventor of the detective story, and master of the macabre, Poe is recognized as one of the most influential and widely read American authors of the nineteenth century, and his work continues to fascinate schoolchildren and scholars alike.
