Where can I get a copy of "Anatomy of a Composition" by EAP

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I would like to find a short piece written by Poe called "Anatomy of a Composition". It is a short explanation of how he planned and wrote "The Raven". I had used it as a source for a paper I wrote back in the '60's. I cannot remember which book I found it in and have not been able to find it again.

Dear Mr. Taylor,

Sounds like "The Philosophy of Composition." It's at: http://www.eapoe.org/works/essays/philcomp.htm

Good luck w/whatever you're working on, & enjoy.
