Professor and Mellon Chair in History of Art, Science, and Folk Practice at the Warburg Institute, John Tresch is the author of The Reason for the Darkness of the Night Edgar Allan Poe and the Forging of American Science. This book peels back the curtains on Poe’s life as someone whose life has been surrounded and formed by his passion and fascination for the sciences. A debunker and sometimes fraudster himself, science was always Poe’s first mistress.
