  Edgar Allan Poe - Books and Biography
Poe suffered from bouts of depression and madness, and he attempted suicide in 1848.
Poe's work and his theory of "pure poetry" was early recognized especially in France, where he inspired Jules Verne, Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867), Paul Valéry (1871-1945) and Stéphane Mallarmé (1842-1898).
In his supernatural fiction Poe usually dealt with paranoia rooted in personal psychology, physical or mental enfeeblement, obsessions, the damnation of death, feverish fantasies, the cosmos as source of horror and inspiration, without bothering himself with such supernatural beings as ghosts, werewolves, vampires, and so on.

Poe next took up residence in Baltimore with his widowed aunt, Maria Clemm, and her daughter, Virginia, and turned to fiction as a way to support himself.
Poe, his aunt, and Virginia moved to Richmond in 1835, and he became editor of the Southern Literary Messenger and married Virginia, who was not yet 14 years old.
Poe published fiction, notably his most horrifying tale, Berenice in the Messenger, but most of his contributions were serious, analytical, and critical reviews that earned him respect as a critic.

 The Edgar Allan Poe Crypto Challenge
Poe claimed that he did not have the time to work out their solution, but published them in Graham's for his readers to decipher.
Another clue was taken from Tyler's correspondence to Poe in which he discussed the difficulty of deciphering text that was written backwards ("eht", rather than "the"), and spaces and punctuation are omitted.

 Today in History: January 19
Before the year was out, Poe had accumulated a debt of $2,000, maintaining the lifestyle of a Virginia gentleman of substance, and had exhausted the patience of his foster father.
Poe called the new genre the "tale of ratiocination." The first story of this type, Murders in the Rue Morgue, featured an apparently inexplicable crime and a step-by-step analysis by the rational Frenchman Dupin, as narrated by his admiring and baffled sidekick.
This theme seems to have arisen from Poe's grief over the early loss of his mother, followed by the deaths of his friend's mother, when he was fifteen years old, and of his foster mother, when he was twenty.

 Biography
While the enormous popularity of Edgar Allan Poe's famous short stories and poems continues to highlight his creative brilliance, Poe's renown as the master of horror, the father of the detective story, and the voice of "The Raven" is something of a mixed blessing.
Today, Poe is known, read, and appreciated on the basis of a comparatively narrow body of work, roughly a dozen tales and half as many poems.
Poe was not averse to the commercial sensationalism either: he wrote several "hoaxes" as news and later capitalized on his personal notoriety for bookings on the lecture/recital circuit.

 perl.com: A Beginner's Introduction to POE
POE is a framework for building Perl programs that lends itself naturally to tasks which involve reacting to external data, such as network communications or user interfaces.
Programs written in POE are completely non-linear; you set up a bunch of small subroutines and define how they all call each other, and POE will automatically switch between them while it's handling your program's input and output.
POE's kernel is much like an operating system's kernel: it keeps track of all your processes and data behind the scenes, and schedules when each piece of your code gets to run.

 The Literary Gothic | Edgar Allan Poe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Or at least a disclaimer: no, Poe was not a drug addict, nor was he a drunk, although there's some evidence he had a problem with alcohol: not that he regularly over-indulged, but rather a medical condition, quite possibly some kind of enzyme disorder, which made even small amounts of alcohol highly problematic for him.
Not that Poe didn't want to marry her so much as he was unable to marry her, if what many scholars say about Poe and women is true.
Thus it is that Poe ended up marrying his thirteen-year-old cousin, the aptly named Virginia (and this at a time when marrying one's cousin was a reasonably legitimate thing to do); she was already ill, thus conveniently rendering consummation of the marriage unlikely if not impossible.

 Edgar Allan Poe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Poe associated the aesthetic aspect of art with pure ideality claiming that the mood or sentiment created by a work of art elevates the soul, and is thus a spiritual experience.
Poe himself was critical of democracy and capitalism (in his story "Mellonta Tauta," Poe proclaims that "democracy is a very admirable form of government—for dogs" [7]), and the tragic poverty and misery of Poe's biography seemed, to Baudelaire, to be the ultimate example of how the bourgeoisie destroys genius and originality.
Along with Mary Shelley, Poe is regarded as the foremost proponent of the Gothic strain in literary Romanticism.

 The Austin Chronicle Books: In Person: Mark Z. Danielewski and Poe: at Borders South Monday, Nov. 13
They clutch their newest Poe CD (Haunted) and absorb homeroom orders from the Borders manager ("Those who have brought Poe's CD must take the inner sleeve of the CD out of the jacket for Poe to sign, those who have bought the CD at Borders may present the CD jacket to be signed.").
Poe, a lanky young blond woman wearing fl and a yellow rain slicker, sits on a table with her brother.
This is, for obvious reasons, an enormously attractive message to Poe's audience, but for me, an older guy, listening to Danielewski reading his prose as if it were poetry (always the sign that something has gone majorly wrong), it was too, too sad.

In fact, Hoffman's honesty about the writings of Poe was this Poe devotee's first view of the author from a perspective other than absolute worship.
Too many Poe books play on the reputation Poe had as a genius who lost a high number of woman he loved to TB, and drank himself to death.
Hoffman definitely cannot be accused of is hating "poor Eddie Poe" - except when to hate means to criticize (good-humoredly) verses like "Where the good and the bad and the worst and the best / Have gone to their eternal rest"...
