September 15, 2012 — You guys already know about my fascination with Edgar Allan Poe sites and my obsession with visiting them—the monuments erected to him and his work, the artifacts and buildings preserved from his life, the places where he lived and wrote. If you don’t, there’s a list of links at the bottom of this page that’ll bring you up to speed. Well, as a result of The New York Grimpendium, I'm a few sites closer to having to create a special Poe section here on OTIS….or to writing a book about it.
Wait. I just realized really want to write that book.
Relevantly, I’m giving a lecture on Poe sites on October 2 at the Tracy Memorial Library in New London, New Hampshire. It’ll be called, The Hallowed Haunts of Edgar Allan Poe.
Wait. That’d be a good book title.
|Edgar Allan Poe Park in the Bronx, which maintains|
a transplanted house that Poe lived in and where his wife
Virginia died, as well as a new museum dedicated to him.
|The museum design is inspired by the |
image of a raven's wing.
|Hall of Fame for Great Americans at Bronx Community |
College, where Poe is rightfully enshrined.
|The reconstructed facade in Greenwich|
Village of a building where Poe lived.
