In most instances, it is not my intent to mislead or provide incorrect responses to questions posted to this forum. Be that as it may, anytime questions arise regarding Edgar Allan Poe's life or his work, there is a margin for error or differing opinions and interpretations of known factual data. I have read and studued Poe's life and work for more than forty years but that doesn't make my answers correct, only better informed than the average enthusiast.

I have sent a response via e-mail. I hope you find it useful. But I will guarantee you only one undeniable truth. The answers I give are those that best suit my logic, my knowledge and my understanding of Mr. Poe and his genius. You may use the information or discard it, as you wish.
