There are 3 comments on Connecting Edgar Allan Poe to His Birthplace, Boston

  1. It’s impossible to ever have a winner in this Great Poe Debate, because the truth is that no one place can lay any real claim to him or his legacy. He was one of those odd figures that “belonged” nowhere…and thus, you might say, now belongs everywhere.

  2. Ahh the winged speller of cloudy days and melancholic brew. It is the other-side of blackness, a surreal that opposes fantasy and at the same time lay not tentative claims to reality. It is the mudane cheerlessness that speaks volumes, the resonnance of echos, that touch the reader’s heart and crepuscular imaginings. Heaven or demon, rest of your soul!
