The Edgar Allan Poe Digital Collection

poeA quick note: The Harry Ransom Center, a humanities research library and museum at The University of Texas at Austin, is commemorating the 2009 bicentennial of Edgar Allan Poe, American poet, critic and inventor of the detective story, with the exhibition “From Out That Shadow: The Life and Legacy of Edgar Allan Poe.” To mark the occasion, the Center’s web site has launched The Edgar Allan Poe Digital Collection, and it nicely features Poe’s manuscripts, his letters and documents, photographs and even cryptographs that Poe liked to solve. (You can try to solve them too.) Have a look, and then feel free to download readings of Poe’s work in our collection of  Free Audio Books.
