Deciphering Poe expands the contextual framework of Poe's work and explores the subversive nature of his art: its use of codes, secret writing, and ratiocination. The essays offer fresh perspectives Poe's debt to baroque tradition, his response to Catholicism, his tribute to philosophical idea of sublimity, his complex response to racial issues, and his controversial afterlife reception.
Alexandra Urakova works as a senior researcher at the Gorky Institute of World Literature of the Russian Academy of Sciences and she is associate professor at the Russian State University for the Humanities, Russia, Moscow. She is the author of The Poetics of the Body in the Short Fiction of Edgar Allan Poe (2009, in Russian).
