Each year, the Poe Studies Association’s J. Lasley Dameron Award honours an outstanding essay collection or bibliography in the field of Edgar Allan Poe studies. For 2020, I am pleased to report that the award went to the essay collection:

Emron Esplin and Margarida Vale do Gato (eds.), Anthologizing Poe: Editions, Translations and (Trans)National Canons, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania: Lehigh University Presss / Lanham, Maryland: Rowman & Littlefield, 2020,– details at:


This volume includes my chapter:

‘Popular Poe Anthologies in the United Kingdom and France’ (pp. 277-292)

(see my blog entry from 26 August 2020 at: https://rollason.wordpress.com/2020/08/26/anthologizing-edgar-allan-poe-new-essay-collection/)

I am delighted at this award, as I am sure the editors and fellow collaborators are too!
