Item description for Edgar Allan Poe: Poems and Poetics (American Poets Project) by Richard Wilbur, Alyssa Ruderman, Nick Podehl, Kate Rudd, Shannen Dee Williams & Cara Lanza Hurley...

Overview
Explores the philosophical and symbolic significance of Poe's most mature works, complementing the collection with a selection of essays on the writer's poetic goals.

Publishers Description
Poe thought of himself as fundamentally a poet, even though he felt that economic pressures had prevented him from devoting himself fully to what "under happier circumstances, would have been the field of my choice." In his poems can be found the most distilled expression of that quest for supernal realities that he took as his aesthetic credo. Richard Wilbur has collected here the whole canon of Poe's mature poetry, along with a selection of prose writings that illuminate his poetic goals.

More About Richard Wilbur, Alyssa Ruderman, Nick Podehl, Kate Rudd, Shannen Dee Williams & Cara Lanza Hurley


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston in 1809, but was orphaned in 1811 and went to live with a foster family in Virginia. The relationship was conflicted, and the Allans withdrew their financial support after Poe had completed only one semester at the University of Virginia. He enlisted in the Army, then enrolled briefly in West Point, meanwhile publishing three volumes of poetry: Tamerlane (1827), Al Aaraaf (1829), and Poems (1831). From 1831 to 1835, he lived in Baltimore with his aunt, where despite his increasing literary success, he began a lifelong struggle with poverty and addiction to alcohol. In May 1836, he married his first cousin, Virginia Clemm, a child of thirteen. In April 1844, he moved his family to New York, and in January of the following year, his literary fortunes turned when his poem "The Raven" appeared in the New York Evening News. Overnight, he became the most talked-about man of letters in America. Early in 1847 his wife died of tuberculosis and he sank further into alcoholism. On October 3, 1849 he was found wandering the streets of Baltimore, delirious, and died four days later from an unknown cause.

Edgar Allan Poe lived in Boston. Edgar Allan Poe was born in 1809 and died in 1849.
