Excerpt from The Complete Poems of Edgar Allan Poe: Collected, Edited, and Arranged With Memoir, d104ual Notes and Bibliography

With this new and authoritative text of Poe's poems, there is presented in the Memoir a new, and I hope, faithful life of the poet. It is the fruit of researches extending over a period of thirty years which began in Baltimore, Maryland, when I was associated with the late Edward Spencer, who edited the poe-snodgrass let ters. The finding of the F. W. Thomas Recollections of E. A. Poe was a most fortunate discovery. With the other important facts connected with Poe's history which have been obtained, they have made it possible to present a comprehensive story of the poet's career with much new light upon certain disputed points.
