Join us for a lecture, “The Raven and the Tomahawk: Poe, Poetry, and the Rise of Popular Criticism,” delivered by UA Associate Professor Paul Hurh, whose new book, American Terror: The Feeling of Thinking in Edwards, Poe, and Melville (Stanford University Press, 2015), explores literary aesthetics, philosophy, and intellectual history.
Edgar Allan Poe was a poet, author, critic, innovator. Known best as a master of the mysterious and macabre, he has become an American literary icon, and his work continues to captivate and inspire readers, writers, and performers of all ages and walks of life.
Presented in partnership with The Big Read Tucson, a program of the National Endowment of the Arts.
The Big Read Connects Tucson is a community celebration and exploration of Edgar Allan Poe and his work. Join us from September 2015 through May 2016 for a host of exciting and diverse events, programs and activities designed to bring Poe to life for all.
