“If it is any point requiring reflection,” observed Dupin, as he forbore to enkindle the wick, “we shall examine it to better purpose in the dark.”
“That is another of your odd notions,” said the Prefect, who had a fashion of calling every thing “odd” that was beyond his comprehension, and thus lived amid an absolute legion of “oddities”.
-Edgar Allan Poe, The Purloined Letter (1845)

Another October marks the anniversary of Poe’s death – one nice way to celebrate his life and works is to explore the E.A. Poe Society of Baltimore’s interesting and comprehensive website. Or, if you prefer, take a look at the original manuscript of his famous last poem, ‘Annabel Lee’, courtesy of Columbia University.
