www.eapoe.org is an excellent site. poecentral.com, poedcoder.com and quality links are also very good for articles. At the first web site, Poe's own essays on style and poetry are a must though sometimes honored in the breach rather than the observance. The primacy of an emotion supported by a unity of plot, sound, imagery etc. is better explained by Baudelaire in his poem "Correspondences" which theory derives from Poe's own words. Musicality, Poe's favorite themes seem very unique, but as you see by reading a range of his total opus(www.eapoe.org) it includes humor, science in essays, fiction, a novel and a variety of poems. The two Poe's(the rationalist, the mystic)also is a bit deceiving, though best wedded in his invention of the detective story.
