Zimmerman breaks new ground in Poe studies by providing a catalogue of three hundred figures of speech and thought in the authors oeuvre, including his tales, personal correspondence, literary criticism, book reviews, and marginalia. This incisive catalogue of literary and rhetorical terms, presented in alphabetical order and amply illustrated with examples - in addition to close examinations of some of Poes most important tales - overwhelmingly demonstrates Poes rhetorical and linguistic dexterity, putting a nearly two-hundred-year-old critical debate to rest by showing Poe to be a conscientious craftsman of the highest order.
