Présentation de l'éditeur

It is with humility really unassumed—it is with a sentiment even of awe—that I pen the opening sentence of this work: for of all conceivable subjects I approach the reader with the most solemn—the most comprehensive—the most difficult—the most august. What terms shall I find sufficiently simple in their sublimity—sufficiently sublime in their simplicity—for the mere enunciation of my theme? --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Poe métaphysicien 29 janvier 2014
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Ecrit en 1848, Euréka est un OVNI dans la mesure où ce que Poe conçoit comme un « poème » s’avère être un essai relatif à la création de l’univers physique et spirituel. Ce n’est pas un hasard si Poe est souvent cité comme un précurseur de l’astrophysique moderne dans la mesure où sa vision du cosmos est proche de la théorie du Big Bang. Les poètes, les mystiques et les chercheurs ont, sans le savoir, un objectif commun. Leurs démarches sont semblables à celui d’un détective à la recherche d’indices permettant d’élucider un crime, et ceci n’est pas sans rappeler certains de ses contes, ou du célèbre « L’écriture de Dieu » de Borges »
Si on n’est pas vraiment intéressé par le sujet, il faut s’accrocher dès les premiers pages, au risque d’être rapidement désorienté tant Poe cite des théories scientifiques peu connues, de Comte, Nichol, Mädler, Lord Rosse et autres. Il vaut mieux le lire dans cette version originale que dans sa traduction française par Baudelaire, qui comporte quelques contresens.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well-Researched Edition of Eureka by Stuart and Susan Levine 6 août 2009
Par Patrick Moore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The rest of the reviews on this page are about Poe's Eureka, a brilliant piece of literature that threatens to solve the riddle of life, the universe, and everything.

I just want readers to see that this is not another ordinary reprint of Eureka, which has lost copyright and so is freely available on the internet, along with all of Poe's work. Why buy a $20 book when you can get it for free? I'll tell you why.

This book edited by Stuart and Susan Levine goes by Poe's proposed edits that were not published. Each page has 51 pages of footnotes after the text, explanations of what Poe was saying in relation to the understanding of his day, referring to his tremendous store of ancient and current books he had read in latin, greek, french, italian, german, spanish, and english. This edition is for someone who really wants to understand where Poe was coming from when he wrote Eureka.

Be careful buying the used copies on this page, as most or all of them (and all the rest of the reviews on this page so far) are not the edition of Eureka edited by Stuart and Susan Levine. I usually buy used, but this time I bought new.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Poe's Pinnacle Work on the Creation of the Universe 30 septembre 2003
Par Brett J. Millan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Written in 1848, Eureka, one of Edgar Allan Poe's last works, propounds his theory of the creation of the material and spiritual universe. In his preface, Poe says "...it is as a Poem only that I wish this work to be judged after I am dead." However, a reader would find it hard to consider Eureka a poem of any sort when the author spends three-quarters of the work expounding, through philosophical proof, a scientific belief in an essay format. Poe's belief is that "Gravity exists on account of Matter's having been radiated, at its origin, atomically, into a limited sphere of Space, from one, individual, unconditional, irrelative, and absolute Particle Proper, by the sole process in which it was possible to satisfy, at the same time, the two conditions, radiation and equable distribution throughout the sphere-that is to say, by a force varying in direct proportion with the squares of the distances between the radiated atoms, respectively, and the Particular centre of Radiation."
As a scientific or philosophical discourse on astronomy, Eureka is a work ahead of its time. Poe went step by step using undeniable comparisons, similar to a geometric proof, to conclude with the aforementioned statement. He begins by proposing his theme that "In the Original Unity of the First Thing lies the Secondary Cause of All Things, with the Germ of their Inevitable Annihilation." He means that through the only Ultimate Principle-the Volition of God, the Universe was created. Within this creation there is an inherited yearning to return to the Original Unity. Poe further explains his theory which is extremely similar to the Big Bang Theory. During creation, the Will of God produced a reaction within a finite space, causing the Original Unity to separate and disperse (or radiate). After the force of creation, "Gravity", an equal but opposite force began to exert itself. This force, proven through Newtonian experimentation, is now contracting the universe back into the "One" or "Original Unity." That is how Poe explains the existence of Gravity along with the dispersion of galaxies, stars, planets, and moons.
But as a literary piece, most readers would drop the book within the first ten pages. Poe's diatribe succeeds in alienating the modern reader through his references to seemingly unknown astronomers and physicists from the 18th and 19th centuries such as Laplace, Comte, Dr. Nichol, Mädler, Lord Rosse, and many others. The usual motifs found in his short stories and poems are missing within the pages of Eureka. What is retained is his compounded clause sentence structure and his sense of self-worth. In many instances, Poe describes scientists' discoveries as being correct, but driven by instinct instead of reason, unlike his own. Interestingly, throughout his essay, he uses the words Divine and God very often. It leads one to believe that since this is written at the end of his life, that maybe he has begun to fear what is to come. Yet this uncharacteristic Poe disappears in the last page in which he states that "Man will at length attain that awfully triumphant epoch when he shall recognize his existence as that of Jehovah." Here Poe, the short story writer, returns as the curtain falls, letting us all know that there is no God but the Unity of ourselves, which of course includes himself.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Interesting----Poe wrote this???! 8 septembre 2005
Par Chris Reich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Ok, I was shocked to see a science book written by Edgar Allan Poe. He himself calls it a poem...ok, Poe, poem.

I'm into astronomy so I thought, why not? Well, here's the thing. It strikes me as a serious work---a sort of explanation of how the Universe was seen in 1848. I found the reading to be a grind from time to time. I wondered why I was reading "outdated" science. I wondered why I was reading Poe's outdated science. Sometimes I was bored with it.

Then again...sometimes I was really gripped by the thoughts and the expressions...man, this guy can write. And I was continually amazed at his knowledge...not only just for the time. And then I felt a connection. A connection I felt for those who've grappled with the same issues in the past but with less information than we have today. I'm learning too and am part of that chain of learning...hard to explain. The ideas, some even wrong ideas, are stimulating. THe thoughts stimulate.

In short, yes, I'm glad I read it. I'm glad I bought a hard copy to add to my library. And something will pull me back to it for reference from time to time----I know that already!

This shows the real Edgar Allan Poe trying to make sense of a loss by searching for the most plausible human answer.
