Beyond speculation, analysis and evaluation of different hypotheses, this collection of essays is an attempt to provide innovative and multidisciplinary perspectives from the current point of view of our newly born 21st century about Edgar Allan Poe's life and works, keeping also in mind the memory of his recent bicentennial celebration (1809-1849).
Among the contributions, different fields of arts such as cinema, literature and science turn this work into an interdisciplinary debate in which the authors disclose and introduce old and new topics, clarify concepts and positions, and above all, testify the huge impact and indelible influence that Poe has permanently exerted on literature, arts and culture worldwide.
The contributions differ according to their diverse approaches, some of them presenting empirical studies, others analyzing Poe's writings not only from a linguistic, sociological or literary point of view, but also showing their close relationship with film, musicology, style and rhetoric.
Mas alla de la especulacion, el analisis y la evaluacion de diversas hipotesis, este volumen de ensayos constituye un esfuerzo por presentar, desde la actualidad de nuestro recien estrenado siglo XXI, puntos de vista novedosos y multidisciplinares sobre la vida y la obra de Edgar Allan Poe, sin olvidar la reciente celebracion de su bicentenario (1809-1849).
Los diferentes campos de estudio de las artes como el cine o la literatura, o tambien la ciencia, convierten este trabajo en un debate interdisciplinar en el que los autores desvelan antiguos temas e introducen nuevas cuestiones, clarifican conceptos y posiciones y, por encima de todo, ofrecen un vivo testimonio sobre el enorme impacto y la huella indeleble que Poe ha dejado en las literaturas, las artes y la cultura alrededor del mundo.
Los ensayos difieren segun sus distintos acercamientos, algunos de ellos presentando estudios empiricos, otros analizando las obras de Poe no solo desde puntos de vista linguisticos, sociologicos o literarios, sino tambien demostrando sus mas intimas relaciones con el cine, la musicologia, la estilistica y la retorica.
