Failed more than once to get a government sinecure to free himself to write. Most of his jobs after his brief stint in the military would be literary. www.eapoe.org andother sites would have the various magazines he worked at or edited. Once when very strapped after the failure of his one novel in 1838 he studied lithography(under Peter Duval) and worked in a printer's shop with the Englishman James pedder. The chemicals made Poe very sick.
