Life and career

“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Busto_de_Edgar_Allan_Poe.jpg” \o

This bust of Edgar Allan Poe is found at the HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Virginia” \o “University of
Virginia” University of Virginia where, having lost his tuition due to
gambling, he dropped out in 1827.

Early life

Poe was born Edgar Poe to a HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scots-Irish” \o “Scots-Irish” Scots-Irish
family in HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston%2C_Massachusetts” \o “Boston,
Massachusetts” Boston, Massachusetts , on HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_19” \o “January 19” January 19 ,
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1809” \o “1809” 1809 . He was
the second child of actress HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eliza_Poe” \o “Eliza Poe” Elizabeth
Arnold Hopkins Poe and actor David Poe, Jr. Edgar Poe had an elder
brother, William Henry Leonard Poe, and a younger sister, Rosalie Poe.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-hervey” \o “” [4]
His father abandoned their family in 1810, HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-father” \o “” [5] and his
mother died a year later from HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuberculosis” \o “Tuberculosis”
consumption . Poe was then taken into the home of John Allan, a
successful Scottish merchant in HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richmond%2C_Virginia” \o “Richmond,
Virginia” Richmond, Virginia , who dealt in a variety of goods
including tobacco, cloth, wheat, tombstones, and HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery” \o “Slavery” slaves . HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-2” \o “” [6] The Allans
served as a foster family but never formally adopted Poe, HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-3” \o “” [7] though they
gave him the name “Edgar Allan Poe”. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-Meyers9” \o “” [8]

The Allan family had young Edgar baptized in the HYPERLINK
merica” \o “Episcopal Church in the United States of America” Episcopal
Church in 1812. John Allan alternately spoiled and aggressively
disciplined his foster son. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/”
\l “_note-Meyers9” \o “” [8] The family, including Edgar and Allan’s
wife, Frances Valentine Allan, sailed to England in 1815. Edgar attended
the Grammar School in HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irvine%2C_North_Ayrshire” \o “Irvine,
North Ayrshire” Irvine , Scotland (where John Allan was born) for a
short period in 1815, before rejoining the family in London in 1816. He
studied at a boarding school in HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chelsea%2C_London” \o “Chelsea, London”
Chelsea until summer 1817. He was subsequently entered at Reverend John
Bransby’s Manor House School at HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoke_Newington” \o “Stoke Newington”
Stoke Newington , then a suburb four miles (6 km) north of London.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-4” \o “” [9]

Poe moved back with the Allans to Richmond, Virginia in 1820. In 1825,
John Allan’s friend and business benefactor William Galt, said to be the
wealthiest man in Richmond, died and left Allan several acres of real
estate. The inheritance was estimated at $750,000. By summer 1825, Allan
celebrated his expansive wealth by purchasing a two-story brick home
named Moldavia. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-5”
\o “” [10] Poe may have become engaged to HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Elmira_Royster” \o “Sarah Elmira
Royster” Sarah Elmira Royster before he registered at the one-year old
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_of_Virginia” \o
“University of Virginia” University of Virginia in February 1826 to
study languages. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-6”
\o “” [11] The University, in its infancy, was established on the
ideals of its founder, HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Jefferson” \o “Thomas Jefferson”
Thomas Jefferson . It had strict rules against gambling, horses, guns,
tobacco and alcohol, but these rules were generally ignored. Jefferson
had enacted a system of student self-government, allowing students to
choose their own studies, make their own arrangements for boarding, and
report all wrongdoing to the faculty. The unique system was still in
chaos, and there was a high drop-out rate. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-7” \o “” [12] During his
time there, Poe lost touch with Royster and also became estranged from
his foster father over gambling debts. Poe claimed that Allan had not
given him sufficient money to register for classes, purchase texts, and
procure and furnish a dormitory. Allan did send additional money and
clothes, but Poe’s debts increased. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-8” \o “” [13] Poe gave up on
the University after a year, and, not feeling welcome in Richmond,
especially when he learned that his sweetheart Royster had married
Alexander Shelton, he traveled to Boston in April 1827, sustaining
himself with odd jobs as a clerk and newspaper writer. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-9” \o “” [14] At some point
he started using the HYPERLINK

Military career

Unable to support himself, on HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_27” \o “May 27” May 27 , HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1827” \o “1827” 1827 , Poe enlisted in
the HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Army” \o
“United States Army” United States Army as a private. Using the name
“Edgar A. Perry”, he claimed he was 22 years old even though he was 18.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-11” \o “” [16] He
first served at HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Independence_%28Massachusetts%29” \o
“Fort Independence (Massachusetts)” Fort Independence in HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Harbor” \o “Boston Harbor” Boston
Harbor for five dollars a month. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-12” \o “” [17] That same
year, he released his first book, a 40-page collection of poetry,
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamerlane_and_Other_Poems” \o
“Tamerlane and Other Poems” Tamerlane and Other Poems , attributed with
the byline “by a Bostonian”. Only 50 copies were printed, and the book
received virtually no attention. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-13” \o “” [18] Poe’s
regiment was posted to HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Moultrie_National_Monument” \o “Fort
Moultrie National Monument” Fort Moultrie in HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charleston%2C_South_Carolina” \o

“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/November_8” \o “November 8” November 8 ,
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1827” \o “1827” 1827 . Poe was
promoted to “artificer”, an enlisted tradesman who prepared shells for
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artillery” \o “Artillery”
artillery , and had his monthly pay doubled. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-14” \o “” [19] After serving
for two years and attaining the rank of Sergeant Major for Artillery
(the highest rank a noncommissioned officer can achieve), Poe sought to
end his five-year enlistment early. He revealed his real name and his
circumstances to his HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commanding_officer” \o “Commanding
officer” commanding officer , Lieutenant Howard, who would only allow
Poe to be HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_discharge”
\o “Military discharge” discharged if he reconciled with John Allan.
Howard wrote a letter to Allan, who was unsympathetic. Several months
passed and pleas to Allan were ignored; Allan may not have written to
Poe even to make him aware of his foster mother’s illness. Frances Allan
died on HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/February_28” \o
“February 28” February 28 , HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1829” \o “1829” 1829 , and Poe visited
the day after her burial. Perhaps softened by his wife’s death, John
Allan agreed to support Poe’s attempt to be discharged in order to
receive an appointment to the HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Military_Academy” \o “United
States Military Academy” United States Military Academy at West Point.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-15” \o “” [20]

Poe finally was discharged on HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_15” \o “April 15” April 15 ,
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1829” \o “1829” 1829 after
securing a replacement to finish his enlisted term for him. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-16” \o “” [21] Before
entering West Point, Poe moved back to Baltimore for a time, to stay
with his widowed aunt Maria Clemm, her daughter, HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_Eliza_Clemm_Poe” \o “Virginia
Eliza Clemm Poe” Virginia Eliza Clemm (Poe’s first cousin), his
brother Henry, and his invalid grandmother Elizabeth Cairnes Poe.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-17” \o “” [22]
Meanwhile, Poe published his second book, Al Aaraaf Tamerlane and Minor
Poems, in Baltimore in 1829.

Poe traveled to West Point and matriculated as a cadet on HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_1” \o “July 1” July 1 , HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1830” \o “1830” 1830 . HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-18” \o “” [23] In October
1830, John Allan married his second wife, Louisa Patterson. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-19” \o “” [24] The marriage,
and bitter quarrels with Poe over the children born to Allan out of
affairs, led to the foster father finally disowning Poe. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-20” \o “” [25] Poe decided
to leave West Point by purposely getting HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Court-martial” \o “Court-martial”
court-martialed . On HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/February_8” \o “February 8” February 8 ,
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1831” \o “1831” 1831 , he was
tried for gross neglect of duty and disobedience of orders for refusing
to attend formations, classes, or church. Poe tactically pled not guilty
to induce dismissal, knowing he would be found guilty. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-21” \o “” [26]

He left for New York in February 1831, and released a third volume of
poems, simply titled Poems. The book was financed with help from his
fellow cadets at West Point, many of whom donated 75 cents to the cause,
raising a total of $170. They may have been expecting verses similar to
the satirical ones Poe had been writing about commanding officers.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-22” \o “” [27]
Printed by Elam Bliss of New York, it was labeled as “Second Edition”
and included a page saying, “To the U.S. Corps of Cadets this volume is
respectfully dedicated.” The book once again reprinted the long poems
“Tamerlane” and “Al Aaraaf” but also six previously unpublished poems
including early versions of ” HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_Helen” \o “To Helen” To Helen “, ”
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poems_by_Edgar_Allan_Poe” \l

“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-23” \o “” [28] He returned
to Baltimore, to his aunt, brother and cousin, in March 1831. Henry, who
had been in ill health in part due to problems with alcoholism, died on

Publishing career

After his brother’s death, Poe began more earnest attempts to start his
career as a writer. He chose a difficult time in American publishing to
do so. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-25” \o “”
[30] He was the first American to try to live by writing alone
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-Meyers138” \o “”
[2] HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-Quinn305” \o
“” [31] and was hampered by the lack of an international HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright” \o “Copyright” copyright law.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-26” \o “” [32]
Publishers often pirated copies of British works rather than paying for
new work by Americans. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l
“_note-Quinn305” \o “” [31] The industry was also particularly hurt by
the HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panic_of_1837” \o “Panic
of 1837” Panic of 1837 , HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l
“_note-27” \o “” [33] Despite a booming growth in American periodicals
around this time period, fueled in part by new technology, many did not
last beyond a few issues HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l
“_note-28” \o “” [34] and publishers often refused to pay their
writers or paid them much later than they promised. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-29” \o “” [35] As Poe began
his literary career, he would soon be forced to constantly make
humiliating pleas for money and other assistance for the rest of his
life. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-30” \o “”

HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:VirginiaPoe.jpg” \o

Poe married his 13-year old cousin HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_Eliza_Clemm_Poe” \o “Virginia
Eliza Clemm Poe” Virginia Clemm . Her early death may have inspired
some of his writing.

After his early attempts at poetry, Poe had turned his attention to
prose . He placed a few stories with a HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philadelphia” \o “Philadelphia”
Philadelphia publication and began work on his only drama, Politian.
The Saturday Visitor, a Baltimore paper, awarded Poe a prize in October
1833 for his short story ” HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS._Found_in_a_Bottle” \o “MS. Found in a
Bottle” MS. Found in a Bottle “. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-31” \o “” [37] The story
brought him to the attention of HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_P._Kennedy” \o “John P. Kennedy”
John P. Kennedy , a Baltimorian of considerable means. He helped Poe
place some of his stories, and also introduced him to Thomas W. White,
editor of the HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Literary_Messenger” \o “Southern
Literary Messenger” Southern Literary Messenger in HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richmond%2C_Virginia” \o “Richmond,
Virginia” Richmond . Poe became assistant editor of the periodical in
August 1835. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-32” \o
“” [38] Within a few weeks, he was discharged after being found drunk
repeatedly. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-33” \o
“” [39] Returning to Baltimore, Poe secretly married Virginia, his
cousin, on HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_22” \o
“September 22” September 22 , HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1835” \o “1835” 1835 . She was 13 at the
time, though she is listed on the marriage certificate as being 21.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-34” \o “” [40]
Reinstated by White after promising good behavior, Poe went back to
Richmond with Virginia and her mother. He remained at the Messenger
until January 1837. During this period, its circulation increased from
700 to 3500. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l
“_note-hervey” \o “” [4] He published several poems, book reviews,
criticism, and stories in the paper. On HYPERLINK

“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1836” \o “1836” 1836 , he had a second
marriage in Richmond with Virginia Clemm, this time in public.

Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym was published and widely reviewed in
1838. In the summer of 1839, Poe became assistant editor of HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burton%27s_Gentleman%27s_Magazine” \o
“Burton’s Gentleman’s Magazine” Burton’s Gentleman’s Magazine . He
published a large number of articles, stories, and reviews, enhancing
the reputation as a trenchant critic that he had established at the
Southern Literary Messenger. Also in 1839, the collection HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tales_of_the_Grotesque_and_Arabesque” \o
“Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque” Tales of the Grotesque and
Arabesque was published in two volumes, though he made little money off
of it and it received mixed reviews. HYPERLINK

[45] The journal would never be produced before Poe’s death.

One evening in January 1842, Virginia showed the first signs of
consumption, now known as HYPERLINK

breaking a blood vessel in her throat. HYPERLINK

partially recovered. Poe began to drink more heavily under the stress of
Virginia’s illness. He left Graham’s and attempted to find a new
position, for a time angling for a government post. He returned to New
York, where he worked briefly at the Evening Mirror before becoming

Poe spent the last few years of his life in a small cottage in the
Bronx, New York.

The Broadway Journal failed in 1846. HYPERLINK

explain how he came to be in his dire condition, and, oddly, was wearing
clothes that were not his own. Poe is said to have repeatedly called out
the name “Reynolds” on the night before his death, though it is unclear
to whom he was referring. Some sources say Poe’s final words were “Lord
help my poor soul.” HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l

Griswold’s “Memoir”

The day Edgar Allan Poe was buried, a long obituary appeared in the
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Tribune” \o “New York
Tribune” New York Tribune signed “Ludwig”. It was soon published
throughout the country. The piece began, “Edgar Allan Poe is dead. He
died in Baltimore the day before yesterday. This announcement will
startle many, but few will be grieved by it.” HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-50” \o “” [59] “Ludwig” was
soon identified as HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rufus_Wilmot_Griswold” \o “Rufus Wilmot
Griswold” Rufus Wilmot Griswold , a minor editor and anthologist who
had borne a grudge against Poe since 1842. Griswold somehow became
executor of Poe’s literary estate and attempted to destroy his enemy’s
reputation after his death. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/”
\l “_note-Hoffman14” \o “” [60]

Rufus Griswold wrote a biographical “Memoir” of Poe, which he included
in an 1850 volume of the collected works. Griswold depicted Poe as a
depraved, drunk, drug-addled madman and included forged letters as
evidence. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l
“_note-Hoffman14” \o “” [60] Griswold’s book was denounced by those
who knew Poe well, HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l
“_note-51” \o “” [61] but it became a popularly accepted one. This was
due in part because it was the only full biography available and was
widely reprinted, and in part because readers thrilled at the thought of
reading works by an “evil” man. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-52” \o “” [62] Letters that
Griswold presented as proof of this depiction of Poe were later revealed

Literary theory

In his essay ” HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Poetic_Principle” \o “The Poetic
Principle” The Poetic Principle “, Poe argued that there is no such
thing as a long poem, since the ultimate purpose of art is HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aesthetic” \o “Aesthetic” aesthetic ;
that is, its purpose is the effect it has on its audience, and this
effect can only be maintained for a brief period of time (the time it
takes to read a lyric poem, watch a drama performed, or view a
painting). He argued that an HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epic_poetry” \o “Epic poetry” epic , if
it has any value at all, must be a series of smaller pieces, each geared
towards a single effect or sentiment, which “elevates the soul”. He also
disagreed with HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Didacticism” \o
“Didacticism” didacticism in poetry, a sentiment often extended to his
fiction. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-54” \o “”
[64] In his criticism, Poe said that meaning in literature should be an
undercurrent just beneath the surface, and that works whose meanings are
too obvious cease to be art. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/”
\l “_note-55” \o “” [65] HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l

Poe’s essay ” HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Philosophy_of_Composition” \o “The
Philosophy of Composition” The Philosophy of Composition “, an overview
of his method in writing “The Raven”, is one of his most complete
discussions of his literary theory. In it, Poe claimed he worked with
extreme precision and care, believing that in writing every sentiment
and idea must be carefully conceived and calculated. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-56” \o “” [66] Such work
should focus around a specific single effect. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-57” \o “” [67] It has been
questioned, however, if Poe really followed the system he described.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T._S._Eliot” \o “T. S. Eliot”
T. S. Eliot said: “It is difficult for us to read that essay without
reflecting that if Poe plotted out his poem with such calculation, he
might have taken a little more pains over it: the result hardly does
credit to the method.” HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l
“_note-58” \o “” [68] Biographer Joseph Wood Krutch described the
essay as “a rather highly ingenious exercise in the art of
rationalization than literary criticism”. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-59” \o “” [69]

In his own fiction, Poe often included elements of popular HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudoscience” \o “Pseudoscience”
pseudosciences such as HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrenology” \o “Phrenology” phrenology

physiognomy . HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-61”

its physical signs, the effects of decomposition, concerns of
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Premature_burial” \o “Premature
burial” premature burial , the reanimation of the dead, and mourning.
HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-62” \o “” [72]
Though known as a masterful practitioner of HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_fiction” \o “Gothic fiction”
Gothic fiction , Poe did not invent the genre; he was following a
long-standing popular tradition. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-63” \o “” [73]

Much of Poe’s work has been read as HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory” \o “Allegory” allegorical ,
though he himself disliked allegory: “In defence of allegory, (however,
or for whatever object, employed,) there is scarcely one respectable
word to be said. Its best appeals are made to the fancy — that is to
say, to our sense of adaptation, not of matters proper, but of matters
improper for the purpose, of the real with the unreal; having never more
of intelligible connection than has something with nothing, never half
so much of effective affinity as has the substance for the shadow.”

Like many famous artists, Poe’s works have spawned innumerable
imitators. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-71” \o
“” [81] One interesting trend among imitators of Poe, however, has
been claims by HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clairvoyance”
\o “Clairvoyance” clairvoyants or HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychics” \o “Psychics” psychics to be
“channeling” poems from Poe’s spirit beyond the grave. One of the most
notable of these was Lizzie Doten, who in 1863 published Poems from the
Inner Life, in which she claimed to have “received” new compositions by
Poe’s spirit. The compositions were re-workings of famous Poe poems such
as ” HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bells” \o “The Bells”

“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-72” \o “” [82]

Even so, Poe has not received only praise. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Butler_Yeats” \o “William Butler

considered it to be his career masterpiece. HYPERLINK

\o “The Gold-Bug” The Gold-Bug ” incorporating ciphers as part of the
story. HYPERLINK “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-80” \o “”
[92] Poe’s success in cryptography relied not so much on his knowledge
of that field (his method was limited to the simple substitution
cryptogram), as on his knowledge of the magazine and newspaper culture.
His keen analytical abilities, which were so evident in his detective
stories, allowed him to see that the general public was largely ignorant
of the methods by which a simple substitution cryptogram can be solved,
and he used this to his advantage. HYPERLINK
“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” \l “_note-Silverman152” \o “” [91] The
sensation Poe created with his cryptography stunt played a major role in
popularizing cryptograms in newspapers and magazines. HYPERLINK

Adding to the mystery surrounding Poe’s death, an unknown visitor
affectionately referred to as the “Poe Toaster” has paid homage to Poe’s
grave every year since 1949. As the tradition has been carried on for
over 50 years, it is likely that the “Poe Toaster” is actually several
individuals; however, the tribute is always the same. Every January 19,
in the early hours of the morning, the man makes a toast of HYPERLINK

cognac to Poe’s original grave marker and leaves three roses. Members
