Helen McKenna-Uff, friend of Hoffman and a Park Ranger at Philadelphia's Poe Historical Site, will be presenting Daniel's groundbreaking work and his relationship to Poe lovers via his friendship with and advocacy of the Poe House.
Daniel Hoffman wrote the groundbreaking book : Poe, Poe, Poe, Poe, Poe, Poe, Poe.
He discusses it more in this interview with Paula Merantz Cohen, of Drexel University.
From LSU site: “This is thrilling criticism, done with a wizardly gusto. The swoops and swirls of the antic style by no means vitiate the wonderful grasp Hoffman demonstrates upon these almost ungraspable poems.”—John Updike “A very exciting reading of Poe, truly serious and liberated from many traditional critical and scholarly solemnities. . . . A rather nutty and completely necessary book.”—John Hollander, New York Times Book Review “The most refreshing and original volume of literary study to appear for a long time. . . . It will set a new style in literary criticism.”—R.W.B. Lewis, The American Scholar “The vitality of tone, the pressure of insight and the compassionate truth-telling are astonishing.”—Richard Howard - See more at: http://lsupress.org/books/detail/poe-poe-poe-poe-poe-poe-poe/#sthash.K1qlZ3Z9.dpuf
