Answers has details plus a good bibliography and links to other sources. knowingpoe/ is a new interactive site that is very good. There is an A&E Biography episode on Poe perhaps available in vidoe from your library.

Aside from the interest in his life's tragedies perhaps few artists have had their art so extremely focussed and so transformed by their experiences as did Poe, even though he removed biography for magic suggestivity and dreamy symbolism.
