well he was born in boston, massachusetts on jan 19, 1809. his mother died of tuberculosis and his father abandoned the family in 1810. he lived with a foster family with the surname of "allan" and that is where he get's the "allen"in his name.

he married one of his cousins. her name was virginia eliza clemm (poe) and she was only 13 years old. she also got tuberculosis and died in 1847.

umm.....he wrote lots of stuff and....

he died in 1849 on october 7th. his death was a mystery as they found him the day before on the streets delirious.


as for the 1900's i'm not sure cuz he passed away before that time.....

I caught that.

I would check Google, under American literature in the 19th century. There are probably some good literary sources listed there. If that doesn't help, try the Library of Congresss website. They would have not only historical references, but also literary ones.
