It appears you have your poets crossed. While I'm sure someone in history may have, at some point, referenced this quotation to Poe (most likely Rufus W. Griswold), the quote was most often applied to that wonderful poet and English scoundrel, George Gordon Noel Byron, commonly referred to as Lord Byron (1788-1824)author of "She Walks in Beauty"
