NOTE BY POE.

PREFIXED TO “POEMS OF YOUTHIN THE EDITION OF 1845.

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.
