MARKETING management, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, LEADERSHIP, TOURISM marketing, and BRANDING (Marketing)
An American icon, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is famed for his fiendish tales of fear and trembling, and premature burial. He is less well known as a businessperson, let alone a marketing thought leader. Poe, though, was not only an entrepreneurially inclined self-promoter of genius, but he practised prescient marketing principles that are pertinent to present circumstances. In a world where dark tourism, dead celebrities and disinterred brands loom large, Poe's principal principles - perversity, poetry, plagiary, plasticity - are prior portents of marketing precepts. Written in an appropriately literary style, this paper shows that dead men do foretell tales. Of markets dreary. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

GREEK literature, TRANSITIVITY (Grammar), and METAPHOR
Abstract Growing interest in Edgar Allan Poe's international connections raises the question of Poe's presence in Greek literature. This essay intervenes in discussions regarding Poe's reception in Greece through a comparison of Poe's work with a number of short stories by Nikolaos Episkopopoulos (Νικόλαος Επισκοπόπουλος, 1874–1944). It focuses on Poe's "Berenice" (1835), "Morella" (1835), "Ligeia" (1838), "The Fall of the House of Usher" (1839), together with Episkopopoulos's "Ut Dièse Mineur" (C Sharp Minor, 1893) and "Maura" (Μαύρα) (1893), exploring the way both writers portray female characters. This comparative analysis of Poe's and Episkopopoulos's fictional works notes the influence of Poe on Episkopopoulos while at the same time emphasizing Episkopopoulos's artistry in modulating Poe's techniques for new purposes. While Episkopopoulos was inspired by Poe's doomed heroines, he portrayed female characters who take on an agency that makes them even more terrifying. Applying Michael Alexander Kirkwood Halliday's transitivity framework, the paper reveals how the grammar of Episkopopoulos's prose posits the male narrator as the passive party in the male female relationship.

Computer programming, Computer software, Charts, diagrams, etc., Signs & symbols, Symbolism, Analogy, Theory of knowledge, and Reasoning
The author argues for the application of philosophy, literary textual analysis and analogy analysis to the designing of computer software. The article uses Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" and Ernest Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea" as examples. The author constructs charts that link the symbols of the various works of literature to "object-orientated terminology." The author argues that by attempting to determine what specific parts of software code symbolizes, greater understanding of the purpose of computer software may be ascertained.
