A Poe Webliography: Edgar Allan Poe on the Internet

By on September 20, 2011

 

Heyward Ehrlich
A Poe Webliography:
Edgar Allan Poe on the Internet

A critical guide to electronic resources for Poe research on the World Wide Web and CD-ROM, including electronic texts, HTML-encoded texts, hypertexts, secondary works, commentaries, and indexes. First published in Poe Studies/Dark Romanticism, 30 (1997), 1-26. (Links last checked 23 June 2010.)

For more than a decade the list has retained the item numbers of the original article in Poe Studies. However, no further updating is possible, and thus a completely new 2nd. edition of Poesites is in progress. It will contain library databases, online references, text archives, research and teaching, Web directories, search engines, and Web 2.0 features.

    What’s New: Established specialist Poe sites such as the Poe Society of Baltimore and the House of Usher have been joined by newer sites such as PoeStories and Knowing Poe. Although many older general archives have diasappeared (such as Internet Wiretap and the Virginia Tech Eris collection), Project Gutenberg and Wikipedia remain very useful general sites. Research library resources such as Project Muse, JStor, and the MLA Bibliography are better places to start a proect than a Web search engine, although Google, Google Books, and Google Scholar remain indispensible tools (now challenged by Yahoo in partnership with Microsoft Bing). A great many sites with duplicate texts have vanished, but newer ones keep springing up. Similarly, amateur sites of Poe enthusiasts seem less prevalent than hitherto, while new sites in the interactive, multi-media mood of Web 2.0 are springing up everywhere with Poe images, videos, blogs, and even Poe-theme merchandise.

    Many of the links dating back to 1990s have not survived to the end of the first decade of the new century. They are retained here for archival use only, the expired links marked “No longer available” when it is clear they are not the subject of transient server errors. A general overhaul of this site began in July 2009.

    A. General Starting Sites:


    Use these sites to start your survey of Poe materials online.

     

       

    1. The Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore:
      http://www.eapoe.org (New address.) 

      Now the most intellectually ambitious and the most critically significant of all Poe web sites. Must-see browsing for all serious students of Poe. Continually updated on multiple levels, this site contains serious discussions of Poe bibliography, the state of Poe’s poetry in e-text form, and a dozen other significant issues. Don’t miss the sections on Poe Topics and Poe Works, part of a larger project to put the version history of everything Poe wrote and as many actual texts as possible online. The text posted of “The Journal of Julius Rodman” is one of many electronic firsts at this site. For details see Edited Texts, below.

    2. Peter Forrest’s Fall of the House of Usher:
      http://www.houseofusher.net/ [New address] 

      Deservedly the most widely used Poe site on the Internet. Although nominally a “fan site,” well balanced, regularly updated, wide reaching, and deep in resources. For guidance, look at the library page (http://www.houseofusher.net/library.html with its huge collection of information concerning Poe, including artwork, audio, bibliographies, biographies, books, complete works, crticisms, cryptography, encyclopedias, essays, historical sites, multimedia, references, RSS, search, societies, timeline, translations, video, works. and more!

    3. Poe Decoder:
      http://www.poedecoder.com/Qrisse/ 

      Features comments and intepretations by Christoffer Nilson (“Qrisse’) and others to “decode” Poe, and to provide ample Poe trivia and useful links to other Poe sites. One feature is Martha Womack’s Precisely Poe, which offers to answer questions about Poe.

    4. Internet Public Library: Literary Criticism: Poe:
      href=”http://www.ipl.org/div/litcrit/bin/litcrit.out.pl?au=poe-10″  

      Selected collections of critical, biographical, and other discussions of Poe. A few more IPL criticism links: Poe Essays | Poe Poems | Poe Tales [New addresses.]

    5. Gothic Net:
      http://www.gothic.net/poe
      Interesting resources and a site search if you can wait out the graphics.
    6. Authors of Supernatural Horror:
      (http://www.creative.net/~alang/lit/horror/poe.sht [No longer available]>
    7. “http://www.nadn.navy.mil/EnglishDept/poeperplex/thepoepe.htm”>The Poe Perplex: [No longer available.]

    8. Stefan Gmoser:
      http://bau2.uibk.ac.at/sg/poe/ [No longer available.]
       

      Good starting site with texts from UM-St. Louis, formatted with HTML encoding and searchable with a grep-based engine. Some longer files, such the Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym and the composite entitled “Criticism” are also available as separate chapters or articles.

      (gopher://gopher.umsl.edu:70/11/library/stacks/books/poe [No longer available]
       

      About 120 Poe files via Gopher. Based on a Walnut Creek CD-ROM briefly available in 1992. This group of Poe e-texts, similar in content to the former Virginia Tech gopher site (discontinued in 1998) was for a time also available with HTML encoding and grep search capability at the site of Stefan Gmoser (http://bau2.uibk.ac.at/sg/poe [No longer available].

      as lepoe10.txt and usher10.txt have been removed.
      Project Gutenberg now offers the complete five-volume “Raven” edition of Poe. Click on search and select as author “Poe” at the address above. (For some reason only 85 the approximately 120 Poe works at this site were reported in a test of this search.)

      C: HTML- and SGML-Encoded Text Projects:


      HTML and SGML encoding in these e-texts includes pagination, special handling of foreign accents and unusual characters, notes on printed sources, and detailed formatting information. Many of the texts in this group have been repaginated according the 1902 Harrison edition, but the texts themselves have not been verified as Harrison’s. At Virginia, Michigan [No longer available.], and Oxford [No longer available], the Poe e-texts are integrated into corpora of some 600 works of Modern English literature, all of which may be investigated in a single search. Two of the sophisticated search engines to be found at these sites are PAT, designed for the Oxford English Dictionary to deal with historical variants in spelling, and Glimpse, a string search utility similar to UNIX grep. (For a census of Poe texts at these sites, see Table I.) [Obsolete]

    25. University of Virginia: Electronic Text Center (ETC): Modern English Collection:
      http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/modeng/modengP.browse.html 

      Scroll down under the letter P. Contains links to 30 Poe items at the Modern English Collection of the Electronic Text Center of the University of Virginia, including 29 texts from the Wiretap bulletin board or Oxford Text Archive (see above) and an upload of “Annabel Lee.” The texts are stored locally as SGML but are converted to HTML upon request via the Web. A few of these texts have been repaginated according to the Harrison edition.Local search index: Public Access Modern English Collection:

    26. University of Michigan: Humanities Text Initiative (HTI):
      http://www.hti.umich.edu/english/pd-modeng/bibl.html [No longer available.] 

      Scroll down to twenty-seven Poe items available in both HTML and SGML format in the Public Domain Modern English Text Collection of the Humanities Text Initiative at the University of Michigan. Search for “Poe, Edgar Allan.” Many of these tales and sketches have been paginated according to the Harrison edition . The Michigan HTI Poe collection is generally similar in content to the Virginia ETC collection, but lacks “The Fall of the House of Usher,” “The Gold-Bug,” and “Ligeia.” The Michigan HTI permits remote access to both the HTML and SGML versions. The SGML versions require SGML parser software in addition to a Web browser.The collection may be searched at HTI Modern English, Simple Search [No longer available.]

    27. The Oxford English Dictionary Online Library:
      http://www.oed.com/corpus.html
      Requires password [No longer available]

      The OED Online Library contains 30 Poe texts, apparently the same as those at the Michigan HTI, as part of the North American Reading Program (NARP), incorporated into a general archive of literature of more than 600 works in Modern English, searchable in a single query. The two unidentified items in the Poe menu are “The Conversation of Eiros and Charmion” and “The Mystery of Marie Roget.” A similar group of Poe works from the Michigan HTI, also requiring a password, is posted to www.oed.com/jpw.html [No longer available].

    28. The Poe Society of Baltimore
      http://www.eapoe.org/ 

      The Poe Society of Baltimore contains a large (and constantly growing) number of Poe e-texts scanned from original editions and set within a bibliography of known variant editions. Each e-text cites its historical source but does not contain the original pagination. The site already contains more Poe e-texts than any other and continues to grow in size and scope.The overall index of primary materials is subdivided divided into poems, tales, essays and sketches, miscellanies, criticisms, and letters.

      Secondary materials include surveys of Poe editions, the Poe canon [New address], and selected Poe topics for discussion.

    29. Complete Poems (1911), ed J. H. Whitty:
      http://www.hti.umich.edu/bin/amv-idx.pl?page=bibl [No longer available.] 

      Scroll down to Poe. An electronic facsimile of Complete Poems (1911), ed. J. H. Whitty, with his introduction of 86 pages and 297 pages of editorial text comprising a “memoir, textual notes and bibliography,” from the University of Michigan HTI, American Verse Collection.This electronic Whitty edition adds five (5) poems to the fifty-one (51) poems already online elsewhere: “Impromptu to Kate Carol,” “Latin Hymn,” “Oh Tempora! Oh Mores,” “Song of Triumph,” and “Spiritual Song.”

      Note: this electronic publication lacks any warning that Whitty’s text includes nine (9) doubtful poems which Mabbott subsequently rejected: “An Enigma” (p. 146), “From an Album” (p. 141), “Gratitude” (p. 144)”, Hymn to Aristogeiton and Harmodius” (p. 158), “The Great Man” (p. 144), “The Magician” (p, 156), “The Mammoth Squash” (p. 159), “The Skeleton Hand” (p. 153), and “To Sarah” (p. 142) (Mabbott, Collected Works, 1:593 and passim).

Ulalume: A Ballad,” edited by Ian Lancashire et al.Each poem contains line-encoded notes and the publication history of the text, citing editions in Poe’s lifetime, annotations in the J. Lorimer Graham copy, and editions by Griswold (1850), Mabbott (1969), and others. For the Toronto project encoding guidelines, see (http://library.utoronto.ca/rp/tagging.html. [No longer available]) Although promised to be “part of the TACT manual to be published by the Modern Language Association,” the CD-ROM as eventually published does not include these texts.
