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.
