Richard Kopley: Discovering Poe

Richard Kopley, Distinguished Professor of English at Penn State DuBois, presents a concentrated and original view of the timeless works of Edgar Allan Poe. Poe is considered the inventor of the modern detective story. And like Poe's fictional detective Dupin, Richard Kopley's tireless and focused investigations have uncovered innovative discoveries about Poe the writer, and Poe the man. Author of the book "Edgar Allan Poe and the Dupin Mysteries", Kopley's understanding of Poe is the result of years of diligent research and analysis. And his work reveals a new layer of discoveries about Poe's sources of inspiration and his creative process.
