Literary theory

.Poe's writing reflects his literary theories, which he presented in his criticism and also in essays such as "The Poetic Principle".[91] He disliked didacticism[92] and allegory,[93] though he believed that meaning in literature should be an undercurrent just beneath the surface.^ Literary and artistic theory In his essay "The Poetic Principle", Poe would argue that there is no such thing as a long poem, since the ultimate purpose of art is aesthetic, that is, its purpose is the effect it has on its audience, and this effect can only be maintained for a brief period of time (the time it takes to read a lyric poem, or watch a drama performed, or view a painting, etc.

It has been questioned, however, if he really followed this system. T. S. Eliot said: "It is difficult for us to read that essay without reflecting that if Poe plotted out his poem with such calculation, he might have taken a little more pains over it: the result hardly does credit to the method."[96] Biographer Joseph Wood Krutch described the essay as "a rather highly ingenious exercise in the art of rationalization".[97]

Poe Toaster

.Adding to the mystery surrounding Poe's death, an unknown visitor affectionately referred to as the "Poe Toaster" has paid homage to Poe's grave every year since 1949. As the tradition has been carried on for more than 50 years, it is likely that the "Poe Toaster" is actually several individuals, though the tribute is always the same.^ She recalled the matter more readily, because she had seen the letters some years previously in Richmond, where Poe's wife had shown them to her family.

^ And this is made even more impressive by the fact that this drama, arguably the greatest play ever written, was written almost 300 years before Poe was born.

^ Even more than a century on, reading Poe still feels like walking a razor’s edge between grim amusement and irrevocable madness.

Porpora said the claim that the tradition began in 1949 was a hoax in order to raise money and enhance the profile of the church. .His story has not been confirmed,[132] and some details he has given to the press have been pointed out as factually inaccurate.^ The house has some incredible architectural details - from the top of the two-story turret with its conical roof to the leaded and stained glass windows throughout.

  • Helen, thy beauty is to me
    Like those Nicean barks of yore,
    That gently, o'er a perfumed sea,
    The weary, wayworn wanderer bore
    To his own native shore.
    On desperate seas long wont to roam,
    Thy hyacinth hair, thy classic face,
    Thy Naiad airs have brought me home
    To the glory that was Greece
    And the grandeur that was Rome.

The Poetic Principle (1850)

Published 1850-08-31
.
  • A poem deserves its title only inasmuch as it excites, by elevating the soul.
  • I hold that a long poem does not exist.^ And that the rumors have existed so long and so continuous, could have resulted, it appeared to me, only from the circumstance of the buried treasure still remaining entombed.

    ^ And that the rumors have existed so long and so continuously could have resulted, it appeared to me, only from the circumstance of the buried treasure still remaining entombed.
    • E. A. Poe,THE GOLD-BUG 25 September 2009 0:51 UTC xroads.virginia.edu [Source type: Original source]

    I maintain that the phrase, "a long poem," is simply a flat contradiction in terms.
    .I need scarcely observe that a poem deserves its title only inasmuch as it excites, by elevating the soul.^ This poem explores a man and his soul, whom are both tortured by an overwhelming agony suffered in this life, but it also explores the need for a cure.
    • Edgar Allan Poe 6 February 2010 12:012 UTC www.corrupt.org [Source type: Original source]

    The value of the poem is in the ratio of this elevating excitement. .But all excitements are, through a psychal necessity, transient.
    That degree of excitement which would entitle a poem to be so called at all, cannot be sustained throughout a composition of any great length.
  • There neither exists nor can exist any work more thoroughly dignified — more supremely noble than this very poem — this poem per se — this poem which is a poem and nothing more — this poem written solely for the poem's sake.
  • I would define, in brief, the Poetry of words as the Rhythmical Creation of Beauty.^ But there is ever more to it than just this.

Edgar Allan Poe
by Tom McInnes
A star-eyed captive, in a lonely tower,
Look'd o'er a lake outspread in sullen gloom
Illumin'd with infrequent lily bloom.
.There wayward Zephyrs sounded hour by hour
Upon a harp whose Eolian power
Beguil'd him, as he paced his haunted room,
To songs ne'er heard before - voicing a doom
That from the very Heavens seemed to lour.
^ As the bell sounded the hour, there came a knocking at the street door.

He sang the songs of Death till Death, his theme,
Engulf'd him in that Night of Mystery
Wherein so often he had peer'd to see
The trail of vanish'd Love - the Elysian gleam
Upleading to a starry destiny -
Twinlking from the very gates of Dream.
^ Biographers and critics often suggest Poe's frequent theme of the "death of a beautiful woman" stems from the repeated loss of women throughout his life, including his wife.

Early life

Edgar Allan Poe was born on January 19, 1809 to two touring & vaudeville actors, David Poe Jr. and Elizabeth Arnold Hopkins. David left the family under unknown circumstances while Poe was still an infant. When Poe was two his mother died from consumption, leaving Edgar an orphan. The wealthy John Allan took Edgar into his home in Richmond, Virginia. In 1815, the Allan family moved to England where Poe went to an English private school. After five years, the family moved back to Richmond, Virginia.

After moving back to Virginia, Poe registered at the University of Virginia in 1826. While there, he lost a lot of money because of gambling, and he went into debt. John Allan became angry at the debt, and cut off all contact with Poe. In 1827, he published his first work, a collection of poetry named Tamerlane and Other Poems. Poe did not have his name published in the book and it was listed only "by a Bostonian".

Military life

Poe enlisted in the army. He used the name Edgar A. Perry and lied about his age. He was successful as a soldier and quickly became a sergeant. While in the army his foster-mother Frances Allan died. Poe decided to attempt to rebuild his relationship with John Allan. Poe soon left the army and enrolled at West Point in New York state to study how to become an officer.

Poe did not enjoy his time at West Point and got very bored during the time he spent in the army so decided to get himself expelled in March 1831. At this point, John Allan disowned him. Poe was well-liked by other cadets who contributed money to pay for Poe to publish a book of his poems called Al Aaraaf, Tamerlane, and Minor Poems. He soon moved to Baltimore, Maryland.

Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York

In Baltimore, Poe lived with his aunt, Maria Poe Clemm. She was the sister of Edgar's real father. Clemm also had a daughter named Virginia Clemm. Virginia also admired Poe very much. In 1836, when Virginia was thirteen, she married Poe.

Poe was writing a lot by this time. He sold his first short story in 1832. His writing did not earn very much money. He also worked as an editor for various magazines over the years, become very well-known for his literary criticism. Poe also was drinking off and on during these years.

In 1842, while Poe was living with Clemm and Virginia in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Virginia became sick with tuberculosis. The family moved to the New York City area in 1843 before settling in The Bronx. On January 29, 1845, Poe published his most famous poem, "The Raven", making him very popular. Virginia died a couple years later on January 30, 1847.

Death

Poe's death is very mysterious. On September 27 1849, Poe left Richmond after a short visit. It is unknown what happened to him until October 3, when he was discovered in a tavern in Baltimore. He was taken to Washington College Hospital. While in the hospital he became delirious and started seeing hallucinations. He died on October 7 1849, in the hospital. Though it is not known what was his cause of death, there are several possible theories, including congestion of the brain, alcohol withdrawal, tuberculosis, and rabies.

Poe was buried in the grounds of the Westminster Church and Burying Ground after a small funeral with only a few people. On May 17, 1875, Poe was reburied at the front of the churchyard after a city-wide campaign to raise money to build a large monument. He is buried there alongside his wife Virginia, and Virginia's mother Maria Clemm.
