By providing text for these essays, we hope to raise the level of scholarship available on the internet, especially in regard to Edgar Allan Poe. It should be noted that many of the older articles are full of inaccuracies have been selected for historical value. Views expressed in these articles reflect the research and opinions of the authors.


Anyone is free to use information from this site for any legitimate purpose without charge as long as sources are properly noted. (Links to this site are welcome, and education or artistic uses are encouraged. Wholesale lifting of our text or images, however, is not permitted — nor is the  unacknowledged use of this material for student papers or commercial endeavors.) Schools may print and distribute any number of copies of these materials for use in class without special permission.


Although substantially complete, various parts of this site are still under construction, and new material is constantly being added. Providing comprehensive and reliable information takes time, so please bear with us. (Proofreading pages, particularly historical items, requires considerable effort, and is likely to be a perpetual task.) We are currently in the process of giving the site a bit of a facelift, as noted at the end of our main menu.
