 Many of Poe's most fascinating works were hoaxes, attempts to present a fictional premise as fact. This lecture will discuss the ways in which Poe's writings continually engaged with the problem of real and the unreal and explain what Poe has to teach us still in our own age of "reality"-TV. One of the world's best-known experts on Poe, Michigan State University Professor Stephen Rachman will be our guest speaker. Register - Crossroads.
