In Poe and the Printed Word Kevin Hayes reappraises the work of Edgar Allan Poe in the context of nineteenth-century print culture. Hayes examines how publishing opportunities of the time shaped Poe's development as a writer and explores the different methods of publication he employed as a showcase for his verse, criticism and fiction. 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.
