Edgar Allan Poe published his first volume of poetry with the pseudonym "A Bostonian." By the end of his life, he had dismissed the city of his birth as “Frogpondia” and its authors as chasing after transcendental fads. This session welcomes proposals that consider Poe’s relationship to and portrayals of Boston, as well as authors of the city.
