When was "Spirits of the Dead" written? Why did Poe write it?

-- Anonymous, May 03, 2003


Visiting in a churchyard cemetery and communing with the sprits of the departed through memory. An early poem reworked over the years 1827-1839.

Perhaps a message to his lost love Elmira Royster that one cannot quite forget the person(Poe)one has wronged.
