"Bold, direct, and devoted to the growth of American literature," Neal was an early appreciator, Kopley argues, of both Hawthorne and Poe, and both authors clearly saw him as a force to be reckoned with: Poe dedicated to him "Tamerlane," and Hawthorne, perhaps less enthusiastically, and likely more ambivalently, in "The Hall of Fantasy" refers to Neal's "rampant muse [who] belches wildfire."
