What do Edgar Allen Poe and Emerson's Jingle Man have to do with each other?

-- Anonymous, April 18, 2001



Ralph Waldo Emerson, leader of the Transcendentalist movement of the period, in 1859, referred to Poe as the "Jingle Man". Beyond this, I doubt Emerson, or Poe for that matter, sought to have much of anything to do with the other.
