Does anyone know of any sites I can find information about Edgar Allan Poe's drug and alchohol addiction leading to his death and the influences it had on his work?

He was definately an alcoholic, however, to say he was a drug addict is argueable. He did not drink for pleasure, but rather to "erase" his painful memories and less than satisfactory life he had. In his writings, he portrayed many characters as drunk. ie: "The Cask of Amontillado" , "The Angel of the Odd" , "The Man of the Crowd" , "The Narrative of Arthur Gordan Pym", "Hop-Frog", etc...
