Notes:

Although this table of contents is a reasonable facsimile of that given in the original printing, changes have been necessarily made for the sake of XHTML/CSS, and for online viewing. Among other minor changes, there are no bullets in the original table of contents.

The following note appears at the beginning of the section called “Poems Written in Youth,”:

* Private reasons — some of which have reference to the sin of plagiarism, and others to the date of Tennyson’s first poems — have induced me, after some hesitation, to re-publish these, the crude compositions of my earliest boyhood. They are printed verbatim — without alteration from the original edition — the date of which is too remote to be judiciously acknowledged.

E. A. P.

Here, Poe is not being entirely honest as he has made several modifications to the text of the poems. The main texs for these poems are taken from Al Aaraaf, Tamerlane and Minor Poems, 1829.
