About the Author

Kevin J. Hayes is Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Central Oklahoma. William Giraldi is the author of the novels Busy Monsters and Hold the Dark.


The Annotated Poe is a stupendous hit. The annotations-presented in the form of marginalia and printed, delightfully, in red-provided by Hayes are perfectly, uncannily pitched to appeal both to readers who've never read a word of Edgar Allan Poe and readers who know his works backwards and forwards... It's a bravura performance, lavish with illustrations. -- Steve Donoghue * Open Letters Monthly *
A lushly illustrated volume that elucidates some of Poe's best-loved works. -- Jan Gardner * Boston Globe *
Poe startles and enchants, but he springs traps for the unwary. There is no better guide through Poe's magic house of mirrors than Kevin Hayes, who brings a wealth of expertise to his annotations. This handsomely produced edition is a treasure-house for Poe novices and initiates alike. -- Nicholas Frankel, Virginia Commonwealth University
Recommended...for anyone who has an interest in Poe's life and work. -- Morris Hounion * Library Journal *
By giving Poe the scholarly attention he deserves, Harvard University Press's beautifully designed new edition The Annotated Poe combats the demeaning cliches. Novelist and critic William Giraldi's foreword elegantly places Poe within his historical, biographical, and critical context. Editor Kevin J. Hayes picked a savvy selection of tales and poems and provides richly detailed and deeply insightful notes that consistently add complexity and depth to the texts. The beautiful illustrations from all manner of media amplify some of the more ethereal of Poe's imaginative creations. This new edition invites readers to take a fresh look at Poe and his far-ranging artistic legacy. -- Matt Hanson * Arts Fuse *
