Via Open Culture, the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin has launched a website dedicated to the life and legacy of Edgar Allan Poe.
This digital archive was launched to accompany the 2009 Poe Bicentennial exhibition, “From Out That Shadow: The Life and Legacy of Edgar Allan Poe,” a joint venture of the Ransom Center and the Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia. 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.
The digital collection includes, among many others, the Poe Manuscript Works, Poe Letters and Documents, Letters to Poe, Poe editions, or Poe Newspapers.
The Harry Ransom Center also features the Gutenberg Bible and Mike Wallace digital collections.
