Poe's and race
In the following two scholarly articles, the authors discuss their views on whether Edgar Allan Poe was racist...or not.
Lee argues that Poe was a racist in his article "Absolute Poe: His System of Transcendental Racism". Kennedy and Weissberg argue that Poe was not racist in their article "Romancing the Shadow: Poe and Race". Provide an example from each article that the author gives to support his argument.
Based on the two articles above:
1) Summarize Lee's article
2) Summarize Kennedy and Weissberg's article
3) Critique the articles: Is Lee's argument correct? Kennedy's argument correct? What's wrong with their viewpoints? (in your opinion)
4) Using supporting evidence, prove why either Lee or Kennedy was correct in their argument.
