Über das eBook

This meticulously edited collection contains complete nonfiction works of Edgar Allan Poe.
Poe's writing reflected his literary theories, which he presented in his criticism and also in essays such as "The Poetic Principle". He disliked didacticism and allegory, though he believed that meaning in literature should be an undercurrent just beneath the surface. Poe also had a keen interest in cryptography and autography, writing several works on the subject.
