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.

In his short, troubled life Edgar Allan Poe originated the mystery story, brought new psychological depth to the tale of horror, and made inimitable contributions to Romantic poetry and literary criticism. Born in Boston in 1809 to itinerant actors, Poe was orphaned as an infant and sent to live with a Richmond merchant, John Allan. Allan sent him to the University of Virginia in 1826, but Poe withdrew because of gambling debts. In 1830, with his first book of poems already published, he entered West Point but was dishonorably discharged the next year. In 1835 Poe was chosen editor of the Southern Literary Messenger. Poe was already established as an author when, in 1845, the publication of "The Raven" made him famous. He began to lecture, engaged in a celebrated feud with Longfellow, and became sole proprietor of his own magazine, Broadway Journal. But in 1846 the magazine went bankrupt, and in 1847, after years of suffering, Poe's wife died of consumption. His ill health and drinking worsened. In October 1849 he was found semiconscious outside a polling place in Baltimore; a few days later he died without regaining consciousness.
Ignored for the most part by his countrymen, he was idolized by the French Symbolists, who thought of him as the first modern poet and helped to win him the recognition that is now his.

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