Über diesen Titel:

Rezension: Not since Louis Renza's important revisionary study, Edgar Allan Poe, Wallace Stevens, and the Poetics of American Privacy (2002), has there been a book devoted to Poe (in whole or in part) and his place in the institution of American Literature like Robert T. Tally Jr.' s Poe and the Subversion of American Literature: Satire, Fantasy, Critique. And Tally's book, solely on Poe, has the advantage of being able to demonstrate for the entire career how Poe systematically subverts the exceptionalist myth of America's manifest destiny via his fiction, criticism, and poetry. No other study has achieved such a depth and scope of critical demonstration with respect to Poe, going back even further, perhaps, for decades. It is very likely to shake up American Studies, as well as rightly to put Poe and his all-encompassing irony once again at the symbolic heart of modern literature. One of the best books I have read in a long time. Daniel T. O'Hara, Professor of English and Humanities, College of Liberal Arts, Temple University, USA Theoretically rich and empirically compelling, Tally's study makes a knock-down case for Poe the Descendentalist: anti-American unmaker of epistemologies, cities, democracies, missions, selves, narratives. Reading across a wide range of literary genres, Tally conjures up a subterranean Poe, nomadic Poe, oceanic Poe, Deleuzian Poe, streetwalking Poe, slyly calling the poete maudit back from his premature burial to erupt in an afterlife of perverse joyous mockery. This study forever makes the stately apparatus of American Studies fall back into the worldly maelstrom of Poe's uncanny figurations. Rob Wilson, Professor of Literature, Creative Writing, and Cultural Studies, University of California at Santa Cruz, USA Poe and the Subversion of American Literature makes an important contribution to both classic and ongoing conversations about what might constitute a national literature in the United States. Robert Tally explores what is "anti-American" in Poe's opposition to conventional notions of national self-formation. In Poe's spirit of prankishness, Tally provocatively argues in this fascinating and accessible book, we see satire and mockery as the best elements of an American literary tradition. Hester Blum, Associate Professor of English, Penn State University, USA Robert Tally's brilliant new book on Poe restores him to his prominent place in the development of American literature and honors his transgressive achievement. Tally is not just an astute critic but also a wonderful, finely honed writer, and his book will be required reading for Poe scholars and fans alike. David Greven, Associate Professor of English Department of English University of South Carolina, USA Tally (Texas State Univ.) follows up his Kurt Vonnegut and the American Novel with a tightly argued treatment of Edgar Allan Poe as a subversive counter voice to the traditional American story of progress, expansion, and upwardly moving achievement. Most earlier discussion of Poe as a satirist focused on his fiction; Tally includes Poe's poetry, essays, and reviews. An Americanist at heart, Tally contrasts Poe's voice with the voices of Melville, Emerson, and Thoreau. The result is a brilliant rethinking of Poe's work that will influence study of mid-19th century American literature for some time. Primarily of interest to specialists, but ambitious undergraduates could handle it. The bibliography and index are thorough. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. -- M. J. Emery, Cottey College CHOICE Robert T. Tally challenges conventional ideas about Poe. Especially the notion that he is essentially a Gothic writer. Poe and the Subversion of American Literature is full of fresh insights. The merits of Tally's ideas are clear...the claim that satirical fantasy is a useful term for describing a considerable portion of Poe's literary output is food for thought and will surely inspire additional studies of Poe. -- Travis Montgomery, Fort Hays State University. The Edgar Allen Poe Review Tally reveals an Edgar Allan Poe who critiques this tradition in favor of an alternative iconography. He eschews the Poe of Gothic gloom in favor of the Poe who mockingly laughs at America's rhetoric of ascent, affirming how Poe is a nomad in a nation of settlers, a satirist refusing the expectations of literary genres, and a documenter of the urban, rather than a respecter of any purported errand into the wilderness.
