Summary The nature of Poe's influence in France and the reasons for the symbolic role he has played abroad have aroused critical curiosity in America for a number of years, but the documents that reveal the motives involved in Poe's reception have been largely unavailable. Alexander traces the continuation and modifications of Poe's reputation through the era of Symbolism.
