Edgar Allan Poe: Terror of the Soul
October 4, 2013 – January 6, 2014
The Morgan Library & Museum
225 Madison Ave. (Madison/36)
Manhattan, NY 10016
Poe left his footprints all over NYC, from Poe Cottage in the Bronx to the Berg Collection of English and American Literature at the New York Public Library, one of the most important collections of the author's materials in the US. In this exhibit, inspired by the preface to Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, the Morgan explores Poe's poetry, fiction, and literary criticism, including his influence on later writers.
Exhibit highlights include: one of the earliest printings of The Raven; the first printing of The Cask of Amontillado; and three copies of Tamerlane, Poe's earliest published work and one of the rarest books in American literature.
