Editorial Announcements

The Poe Studies Association Newsletter is published independently of this journal. For information concerning membership in the association, which includes subscription to its Newsletter, write Joseph M.

For aid in editorial evaluations during the past two years, Poe Studies wishes to thank, in addition to the members of the board, the following individuals: Watson G. Branch, John W. Ehrstine, Roger Forclaz, David H. Hirsch, Virginia Hyde, David K. Jackson, Stanton J. Linden, Franz Link, Kent Ljungquist, John C. Miller, Barton Levi St. Armand, Erich W. Sippel, Donald B. Stauffer, and Frank Towne.

The “Poe in Europe” column in this issue’s review section continues a feature of the journal begun in 1969 by Claude Richard. Patrick F. Quinn’s present survey represents an extension of his on-going interpretation of modern French critical responses to Poe in such; works as The French Face of Edgar Poe (Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press, 1957) and Poe and France: The Last Twenty Years (Baltimore: Edgar Allan Poe Society, 1970). Roger Forclaz will survey recent German scholarship and criticism on Poe for this column in the December 1978 issue of Poe Studies.

Beginning with this number, Poe Studies adopts an abbreviated style of documentation for frequently cited texts of Poe’s writings. Citations are keyed as follows:

Works — Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe; vol. I, Poems; vol. II, Tales and Sketches 1831-1842; vol. III, Tales and Sketches 1843-1849, ed. T. O. Mabbott (Cambridge, Mass.: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1969-1978).

Complete Works — The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe, ed. James A. Harrison (New York: Thomas Y. Crowell, 1902; or rpt., New York: AMS Press, 1965).

Poems — The Poems of Edgar Allan Poe, ed. Floyd Stovall (Charlottesville: University Press of Virginia, 1965).

Letters — The Letters of Edgar Allan Poe, ed. John Ward Ostrom (rev. ed., New York: Gordian Press, 1966).

When reference to a standard text is appropriate, contributors should use the above editions. For the poems, please cite either the Virginia Poems or the first volume of the Harvard Works, and for the tales and sketches, the appropriate volume of the latter edition. For “Hans Pfaal,” “The Journal of Julius Rodman,” The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, and the other prose writings, Harrison’s Complete Works remains the standard text until superseded by forthcoming volumes of the Harvard Works now being edited by Burton R. Pollin.
