Today is the 164th anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's death.

Maybe just the right time to have a look at this pioneer of American Romanticism once again.

I have added the Literary Criticism (The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe, vols. 8-13, ed. by James A. Harrison, Thomas Y. Crowell & Company 1902, including the editorial matter), the Letters (The Letters of Edgar Allan Poe, 2nd edition, 2 vols., ed. by J. W. Ostrom, The Gordian Press 1966), and the missing Miscellanea (from the first publications). I have also included the original 160 autographs for “Autography” and “A Chapter on Autography.”

Expect proofed versions of the tales and A. Gordon Pym soon.

Only slightly later than announced, here they are:

I have replaced the tales and novels with the critical texts from www.eapoe.org (Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe, Vol. 2 & 3: Tales and Sketches, ed. by Thomas Ollive Mabbott, Cambridge & London, 1978; The Collected Writings of Edgar Allan Poe, Vol. 1: The Imaginary Voyages, ed. by Burton R. Pollin, New York, 1994) and proofed them against scans of their copy-texts. I have tried to make sure they follow the critical editions by also checking Mabbott’s and Pollin’s emendations. About 470 mistakes in the eapoe.org-digitisation were corrected. Please let me know if you find any mistakes.

There are, in the critical editions, about 200 deviations from the copy-texts which are not recorded in the list of variants, half of which I would call mistakes (the rest may be silent emendations). All of them are hidden in the code and appear if you delete “display: none; ” in the stylesheet specifications for the <ins> element. (If you do the same for the <del> element, you will get the page numbers for the tales, the novels, the criticism, and the letters.)

There isn’t much left of the original Raven Edition (sorry, P’weeze), but I think the critical texts would be preferred by most people.

This is just a brief thanks for collecting and collating Poe's works in one place. Though there are numerous multi-volume editions (Raven, Stone & Kimball, Croker/John Murray, etc.), and an 80 MB (yet incomplete) Archive.org epub of the 1938 Random House edition, you've produced a useful compilation that is easy to read and reference in almost any device.
