An Index of Authors in “Autography”


Authors in “Autography”

This list includes all of the authors treated in Poe’s “Autography” series, comprised of the following installments:

  • “Autography” (Southern Literary Messenger, February and August 1836)
  • “A Chapter on Autography” (Graham’s Magazine, November and December 1841)
  • “An Appendix of Autographs” (Graham’s Magazine, January 1842)


The authors are listed alphabetically by last name.




Many of these names, although unfamiliar to modern readers, would have been recognized by Poe’s contemporaries from contributions to various periodicals of the day. A good number of these authors are documented in the extremely useful Dictionary of Literary Biography, and are so noted with a comment of DLB.
