Dear Sheryl,

Here are brief answers to both of your questions:

a) Poe's Education:

1) [aged 6-11] Irvine Grammar School (Irvine, Scotland) and Manor House School, (Stoke Newington, England) . 2) English and Classical School (Richmond, Virginia). 3) [aged 17] University of Virginia. Poe was soon forced to leave University, after incurring heavy debts which his foster father, a Mr John Allan, refused to pay. 4) Poe also went on to join the army, under the pseudonym of Edgar Perry.

b) Poe's wife, and incidentally his cousin, was called Virginia (maiden name Clemm).

Hope this helps you out:

Yours sincerely,

Pragmatic Poe
