Try www.eapoe.org for biographical resources as well as good pithy sections on important problems. The special mix that made Poe perhaps the greatest American poet, but for certain the most unique might be important. Also some unexpected(thanks to the popular legend of Poe as a mystic dope fiend) facts are his wealth of writings other than horror, his humor, his athleticism, his love of cats and gardening, his keen interest in science and promoting a genuine American literary culture.
