Edgar Allen Poe Digital Collection

PoeRavenThe University of Texas has an excellent program online called The Edgar Allen Poe Digital Collection.  They’ve got digital copies of Poe manuscripts, letters, early editions, books that he owned, newspaper clippings, and photos.  This image shows an edition of collected poems owned by Poe in which can be seen his handwritten notes and corrections for the publisher.  Look at how pissed off he was about the word ‘Raven’ consistently appearing with a lowercase ‘r.’

Halloween is coming.  What better way to prepare than by reading some Poe?
