Try www.eapoe.org for material and bibliography. Poe is not the the legend wrapped around him then or now. Soemnthing of the precocious genius, the arrested adolescence(solely from his being an orphan and estranged from his foster family?), captivated in his artistic vision from childhood, proud, genteel, witty, energetic, athletic, sure of his genius but defensive of his workks and position, outraged at personal slights and offenses against literature, imaginative, interested in new science and puzzles, mysteries, intrigued by scary, misty and suggestive landscapes, alcoholic,etc.
