Poe goes online!

As you know, Poe is my dead celebrity best friend!!! Nice to know I can read it anywhere and any time I long as I have access to the interwebs of course :-)

Poe archive from UT Austin goes online: "Lori sez, 'UT Austin's Ransom Center has digitized their Edgar Allan Poe collection, and it's pretty cool. I especially like the copies of his books, with his notes in them.'

Oh, there's tons of Poe treasure here. I'm in hog heaven.

The digital collection incorporates images of all Poe manuscripts and letters at the Ransom Center with a selection of related archival materials, two books by Poe annotated by the author, sheet music based on his poems, and portraits from the Ransom Center collections. Poe's manuscripts and letters are linked to transcriptions on the website of the Poe Society of Baltimore.
