Abstract

First delivered as a paper at the Poe conference in Philadelphia in 2009, this extended version reveals how Poe's mesmeric tale can help us rethink trauma theory before Freud. Poe's strategic use of archival materials concerning an 18th-century insurrection in India provides compelling insight into the transmission of affect in the construction of global histories. --author-supplied description
