Thomas Beale Treasure...Reviews and Links To Poe's Poems
Back ] Home ] Next ]

    Las Vegas to the Grand CanyonThis selection of Poe's poems contains at least one example of every surviving poem of which he is certain or nearly certain to be the author. Variants, noted parenthetically beside the name of the poem, refer to those given in the edition of Poe's poems edited by Thomas Ollive Mabbott (The Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe - Volume I: Poems, Cambridge: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 1969). Mabbott's is the definitive edition of Poe's poems, including notes on all textual variants from manuscripts and texts published up to the edition edited by Griswold in 1850. For punctuation variants, refer to the very fine collection of Poe's poems by Floyd Stovall (The Poems of Edgar Allan Poe, Charlottesville: The University Press of Virginia, 1965). In general, Mabbott assigns each variant a one-letter code of "A" through "Z." It should be noted, however, that Mabbott never assigns a text "I" or "O." To a few variants, Mabbott assigns a 2-character value, with a letter and a number, such as "J2." Where we have added our own items to the list of variants, we have adopted a 2-character value comprised of letters only, such as "CB." A number of recognized reprints and translations from Poe's lifetime have been included on the list to reflect public reaction to a tale. This list is not necessarily exhaustive as there were many unauthorized reprints. (Mabbott does not list reprints, so these have been culled from a variety of other sources, especially the Bibliography (1943) by Heartman and Canny.) Generally, the text for reprints is not given here as these can hardly add to our documentation of Poe's intentions or our understanding of its meaning.

    Within these selections, all original punctuation, abbreviations and spellings have been retained. Where these spellings differ greatly from modern spellings, the most current form is noted in brackets immediately following the word. A number of obvious variants, such as "colour" for "color," reflect conventions to which we no longer adhere, but which were considered acceptable during Poe's lifetime and are left to stand without additional commentary. For manuscript material, including Poe's own corrections to printed sources, text contained within angle brackets "<...>" shows annotations made by Poe himself for the main text given. Reversed double-angle brackets ">>...<<" show text that Poe has canceled by striking or scratching out. Text contained within square brackets "[...]" is not part of the original. This text is intended as notes or corrections of typographical errors. In the original printings, some text occasionally appears within square brackets "[...]." In such cases, these have been changed to standard parentheses to avoid confusion. (Note: Over the next several months, we will be changing our stated policy concerning square brackets to retain Poe's usage and distinguish our own editorial notes by enclosing these in double-square brackets "[[...]]".)

    At the end of each selection, beyond the "End of Text" tag, is a code, such as "[S:1]". This code is intended as an internal marker for keeping track of verification of the text.  In general, a value of "[S:0]" or the total absence of the code notes that the text has been entered, but not yet verified. Anyone who has ever tried to proofread a large volume of text will appreciate the inherent difficulties.

The Collections and Books:

    During his lifetime, Poe published four collections of his poetry. A posthumous collection, edited by Rufus Wilmot Griswold, incorporates some additional manuscript changes, although Griswold did not have access to a few other important corrections and is therefore less than definitive. These collections are listed chronologically.  Within each of these, there is a list of poems which links to the appropriate text of text.
  • "Wilmer" manuscript collection  (about 1828, several poems in manuscript)
  • Poems   (1831, Poe's third published collection of poetry, POEMS)
  • "Richmond Examiner" manuscript collection  (late 1849, several poems for which the contents are recorded but the manuscript apparently lost)


The Poems:

    These items are arranged alphabetically by the name of the poem. Within each name, the items are listed chronologically. A few poems were published by Poe under more than one name, or under a name assigned by later editors. These poems are listed under the name most commonly used.
