商品の説明

内容紹介

Coffee with Poe, award-winning finalist (historical biography category) of the USA Book News "Best Book Awards," is a historical novel detailing Edgar Allan Poe s life. The book is filled with actual letters to his three fiancees, his literary contemporaries (Longfellow, Irving, and Hawthorne), and his bitter enemies. The characters are brought to life by interactive dialogue that may have taken place given what history teaches us. Read about the life of America's most haunting and mysterious author today and see Edgar Allan Poe brought to life like never before! To give us a historical fiction look at Edgar Allan Poe is great. The start where we are at his mom's funeral gives a little insight into why he may write the way he does. It is very interesting the ideas the author has put into the story about Poe. I like the idea of detailing the life of Edgar Allan Poe into a historical fiction novel. . . . A great idea to give us some insight into why Poe may be the way he is.

It must be difficult to fictionalize America's greatest (and arguably most famous) poet. Avid fans with romantic notions of the past will cry revisionist at the slightest perceived inaccuracy of character, and inevitably the work will be combed for both historic imprecision and grammatical error.

Did I notice these flaws? Of course. The author occasionally confuses pronouns, and there are several syntactical mistakes. But the book is fascinating and engaging. Barger has a gift for storytelling, and he brought Poe to life in a way that captured the tragic elements in both his life and character. True to Poe's motto, Barger has cultivated a work of literature from the little oatmeal of correspondence that remains.
5つ星のうち 4.0 The closet thing you will get to an Edgar A. Poe autobiography. 2014/12/29

While I have been a Poe fan for many years, I only know the basics about his life. Coffee with Poe was an enjoyable way to learn more about Poe without having to hit the stuffy history books. I found myself fact-checking the author, Andrew Barger, when details popped up that I found hard to believe. I found most of the events portrayed in the book to be accurate or at least based on established theories. Obviously there are many parts of the poet's life that remain a mystery, including his death. Barger does a good job of incorporating some more respected theories into the story.

A few of Poe's letters and poetry are interspersed through the text. The added context of the when and why he was writing these letters made these additions more enjoyable than they would be on their own. After reading Coffee with Poe I'm not sure if I would have liked Poe had I known him in person. In multiple letters to John Allan he both rails against him and then begs him for money, which is ironic and a bit childish. The author downplays Poe's drinking, perhaps how Poe would have done in real life but does discuss Poe's low tolerance of alcohol. Poe's financial struggles, his romantic relationships, and the quarrels with his many detractors were also well illustrated in this work.

Why I didn't give it five stars
There were some typos and editing oversights, especially towards the end of the book. Some of the dialogue, especially in the first few chapters, was not realistic and even a bit cringe-worthy at times. I almost didn't make it past the first few chapters due to this, but I am glad I did as the book picked up once it got to Poe's adult life. There were a few anachronisms, for instance a character ordering a Caesar salad while out to lunch with Poe. I don't think these were a thing at that time?! However these flaws are forgivable in the overall scheme of this book. A large amount of research obviously went into this work and these are just minor quibbles. I would recommend this to any fan of Edgar Allan Poe who wants to know more about the tragic but fascinating life of this author.

I have read many good biographies all of which were written by historians or related scholars and generally written for that same audience. Generally, biographies and histories are not written with the average member of the reading public in mind and that's a terrible shame. Maybe if these authors altered their perspective a bit then maybe more people would have a better sense of history. Now I've read "Coffee With Poe" and it is unlike any biography I have ever read. It was actually entertaining as well as being informative. While this book is technically historical fiction I suspect the history is fairly accurate. Because of a few very minor but glaring historical errors I can't fully endorse the author's historical accuracy but I do believe as regards Poe he was true to his subject. What made this so good was that it was written more as an autobiography. Poe himself is the narrator of his story which, of course, makes this a work of fiction along with obviously invented dialogues with the major characters in Poe's life. I have to admit not know anymore about Poe than I learned in high school and after reading this book I am inspired to learn more. Can an author ask for a better endorsement?

5つ星のうち 4.0 Excellent Read! 2013/10/22

I came across this book accidentally searching Poe on the web. But I am so glad I found it!

Overall, the work is impressive. I appreciate the obvious care the author took in getting his facts right and I appreciate his portrayals of many of the characters.

Poe especially is portrayed in a sympathetic light. Although I disagree with the author's decision regarding the Poe-Osgood "affair" I was mostly pleased with how the issues of Poe's "alcoholism" and other faults were handled.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Enjoyable book about Edgar Allen Poe 2014/8/5

We met the author, Andrew Bargar, on a plane from Atlanta to Sarasota, Florida. I had always had an interest in Edgar Allen Poe, and this book helped me to better understand EAP's life and times. The author used letters from EAP's lifetime to frame the story. Very readable and informative for anyone who is interested in American authors from that time period.
