At the upcoming ALA Conference in Boston (May 25-28, 2017), one of the Poe Studies Association’s panels will focus on Poe in the light of anthologies. Earning a living as a professional writer for newspapers and magazines, Poe was constantly occupied with publishing enterprises, and he had his own ideas about anthologizing others (the monumental The Living Writers of America) as well as himself (Tales of the Folio Club, Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, The Raven and Other Poems). Poe was obsessed with displaying both unity and diversity in his body of work, and that literary corpus was both dismantled and reconstructed during his lifetime and afterwards by several influential editors. According to Alan C.

Amidst growing population and urban redevelopment, eighteenth-century cartographers turned to maps to structure the changing size and shape of cities. For example, topographical maps provided readers with details that visually enclosed and contained the increasing sprawl of a rebuilding London. Textual surveys, by such cartographers as William Stow, used narrative prose to expand the topographical view in order to show “where every Street, Lane, Court, Alley…or any other Place…is situated.” These maps and surveys flooded the market in the 1740s, the decade which also witnessed the intensifying growth of the novel.

La crítica literaria se ha ocupado extensamente de diversas representaciones de fenómenos como la violencia, la guerra, las dictaduras, la represión, las revoluciones y el exilio en la literatura latinoamericana, pero se ha dejado de lado el estudio de una de las reacciones humanas que más estrecha conexión tiene con estos fenómenos: el miedo. De forma directa o indirecta, el miedo ha estado presente como tema constante en las obras literarias de diversos géneros, épocas, filiaciones estéticas, compromisos ideológicos y agendas políticas, dentro de un espacio como el de Latinoamérica, tan convulso como diverso política y socialmente.
