"Hello! I am a sophomore English teacher at a small high school in Ohio. Every year for our poetry section, I spend about 2 weeks just in Edgar Allan Poe's works. I actually have my students all go to this site on their devices to read daily. The clickable words that show you a brief definition and how all of his pieces I would like to read are in one, easy to navigate place.<br><br>So, thank you on behalf of my sophomore classes every year for the past 4-5 years!

"I have only read two of Poe's poems, but he is one of my favorite authors already. The poems that I have read are Alone and A tell-tale heart, and they are both truly incredible poems. I loved tell-tale heart best because my English class did a mock trial where we tried the narrator for insanity and that was really fun to do."

REPLY from Robert Giordano:
The mock trial sounds like a really fun idea!

Natalie Porter

from Nebraska, Definitely Planet Earth.

"Edgar Allen Poe's "Alone" is one of my favorite poems in existence. I feel like though it had a certain solemnity to it, the poem is the kind of poem that you can relate to. My favorite story of his, however, was "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." I feel like if he hadn't passed away, our late poet would have gone on further, and written much more for the world to enjoy."

REPLY from Robert Giordano:
I agree with you on both of your choices! Did you know "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." was the first real detective story where the main character solves crimes when the police can't? Poe's detective inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to write Sherlock Holmes, almost 50 years later!

His haunting prose and darkly poetic verses continue to captivate readers, inviting us to delve into the depths of the human experience. Poe's legacy as a writer endures through the timeless appeal of his stories and poems, solidifying his place as an essential figure in the literary world."

"I find myself frequenting this site often, so I felt that I'd finally fill this in. I enjoy reading Poe's stories in my free time (often during boring classes - why can't we study his work in English?) so thank you for setting this website up. My favourite story would be Ligeia. I adore his love stories, but I feel as if they all end with the love interest dying - but, in Ligeia, she comes back to life, in such a strange way. I am always debating with myself whether she came back to life or if it was an opium-induced hallucination. Anyway it brings me hope. I have almost run out of characters so"

Yes, Romanticism was at its peak from approximately 1800 to 1850. Poe died in 1849. I made a timeline listing events in Poe's life and other important people during those years.

"I have always been a fan of Edgar Allan Poe's poetry, but I only found out recently that, not only did he write short stories, but he wrote so many, and they were so ingenious, that he became known as the father of the modern short story! I just read the Angel of the Odd (which really made me laugh) and the Cask of Amontillado, and I can't wait to read even more!"

Angel of the Odd is so much fun! Many people have no idea Poe wrote some comedy along with the horror.

"Even though you were weird with your cousin, an alcoholic, and a somewhat spoiled baby who wasted his money when he was older. I still think you're a pretty cool dude."

REPLY from Robert Giordano:
Poe may have had some trouble with alcohol, but he was in no way "a somewhat spoiled baby". Its true he was adopted by Mr. Allan, a wealthy merchant, and was sent to boarding school in England. But how would you like to be sent to a school in another country at 6 years old, and not return home until you were 11? You didn't have your own room at boarding school. You shared quarters with other students and there was no hot water. It was like living in a military barracks.

I like how it contains pretty much everything you would want to know about Edgar Allan Poe so you don't have to search the internet endlessly for answers. <br>If I had to choose a favorite poem of Poe's, I'd say it was "Alone," mainly because "Alone," is really revealing about how Poe felt about himself.

REPLY from Robert Giordano:
Alone is one of my favorites as well. The feeling from that poem, when I first read it in middle school, is one of reasons I built this site.

REPLY from Robert Giordano:
Poe read a LOT. I think he read everything he could get his hands on. But his ideas were also very original. People at the time were not writing horror stories. Poe invented the first detective character that solved crimes by investigation and deduction. He created entirely new genres of fiction.

"To be someone who, even beyond the grave, reaches people is to be someone who has done well in time.<br>Edgar's poems hold such meaning and weight, and in that people everywhere find a sense of being. In the prose he wrote, people found meaning. And the meaning may not be the intended one, but it was the one that needed to be heard. The meaning that was needed. <br>The man himself was just as much of a mystery as his work, even in the way his life occurred. He went through highs and lows throughout his life. Because of that, he created meaning.<br>Unique is the sense when one finds the words one needs."

"Marlow played chess; Holmes was obvious... But Poe claimed that any writing (the raven) could be arrived at by deduction (ratiocination his word). The essay stating this a joke/sarcasm? I believe it. Numerous examples of screenplays only pulling together after twenty or more rewrites (sixth sense etc)- way ahead of his time."

REPLY from Robert Giordano:
Yes, I've read that essay and I'm not sure I agree with what Poe is saying. But then again, Poe was an expert cryptographer and maybe there's a hidden message in that essay?

How is it that from beauty I have derived a type of unloveliness? --from the covenant of peace a simile of sorrow?

It's a style. Some call it "goth", short for "gothic". But for me, it's not about a label. It's about seeing the duality in nature- the beauty in darkness. You can see this dualism everywhere- it's there in Beauty and the Beast, a fairy take written by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in 1740, almost 70 years before Poe was born.
