 About the Book

It is almost amusing to see how each new memoir of Poe professes to be the first to tell the real story of his life- and how each, while denouncing the obvious malice of Griswold, ends by reestablishing almost all the damaging facts which Griswold left only half-proved. If Poe fared ill at the hands of his ennemy, he has fared worse, on the whole, at those of his friends.
