Notes:

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.
