Current Poe Bibliography

This checklist supplements Professor Richard P. Benton’s checklist of Poe criticism and scholarship appearing in Poe Studies, 4 (1971), 38-45. This listing was compiled by a Committee composed of J. Lasley Dameron, Chairman, Memphis State University; John E. Reilly, College of the Holy Cross; Thomas C. Carlson, Memphis State University; and Judy Osowski, University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee. This Committee, appointed during a meeting of a proposed Poe studies association held at the MLA convention in December 1972, will attempt to publish an annual checklist of Poe criticism in Poe Studies, and will be pleased to receive offprints from any source. Send offprints to J. Lasley Dameron, Department of English, Memphis State University, Memphis, Tennessee 38152.

The Committee wishes to thank the Mississippi Quarterly in granting permission to include listings from its annual bibliography of criticism on Southern literature. In some instances, moreover, annotations from various bibliographical sources like PMLA and American Literature are utilized. Reprints of earlier studies are listed, but are not annotated unless additional bibliographical information is required.
