About this Item

Neuware - Source: Wikipedia. Pages: 29. Chapters: The Raven, Poems by Edgar Allan Poe, Al Aaraaf, Tamerlane and Other Poems, Ulalume, Annabel Lee, The Bells, The Conqueror Worm, The City in the Sea, Lenore, The Haunted Palace, Eldorado, To Helen, Eulalie, A Dream Within a Dream, Nesace, Sonnet to Science. Excerpt: This article lists all known poems by American author and critic Edgar Allan Poe (January 19, 1809 October 7, 1849), listed alphabetically with the date of their authorship in parentheses. An unpublished 9-line poem written circa 1829 for Poe's cousin Elizabeth Rebecca Herring (the acrostic is her first name, spelled out by the first letter of each line). It was never published in Poe's lifetime. James H. Whitty discovered the poem and included it in his 1911 anthology of Poe's works under the title 'From an Album.' It was also published in Thomas Ollive Mabbott's definitive Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe in 1969 as 'An Acrostic.' The poem mentions 'Endymion,' possibly referring to an 1818 poem by John Keats with that name. The 'L. E. L.' in the third line may be Letitia Elizabeth Landon, an English poet known for signing her work with those initials. 'Zantippe' in line four is actually Xanthippe, wife of Socrates. The spelling of the name was changed to fit the acrostic. This poem is based on stories from the Qur'an, and tells of the afterlife in the place called Al Aaraaf. Poe included it as the major poem in his 1829 collection Al Aaraaf, Tamerlane, and Minor Poems. 'Alone' is a 22-line poem, originally written in 1829 and left untitled and unpublished during his lifetime. The original manuscript was signed 'E. A. Poe' and dated March 17, 1829. In February of that year, Poe's foster mother Francis Allan had died. In September 1875, the poem, which had been in the possession of a family in Baltimore, was published with its title in Scribner's Monthly. The editor, E. L. Didier, also reproduced a facsimile of the manuscript, though he admitted he added the date himself. The poem is now often included in anthologies. 'Alone' is often interpreted as autobiographical, expressing the author's feelings of isolation and inner torment. Poet Daniel Hoffman believed 'Alone' was evidence that 'Poe really was a haunted man.' The poem, however, is an introspective about P 44 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9781155482361
