Through reasons that are too complicated to explain here, I came across the Edgar Allan Poe Museum's web site. The museum is located in Richmond- NOT Baltimore, though a number of historical sites related to Poe are found in John Waters' hometown.
They have a quiz on Poe knowledge. I got 5 out of 10 right. Well, perhaps there is a Robert Frost quiz. Anyway, here is one question I got wrong. It is one which I thought I would get right since I consider "The Raven" to be among my favorite poems!
The question was worded: The year Poe's infamous poem "The Raven" was published in:
It is: B- 1845.
I guessed C- 1846!
The web site for the Poe Museum is http://www.poemuseum.org
They are located at 1914 E. Main St. Richmond, Va. 23223
The Poe Museum can be reached via email at email@example.com or by calling 1-800-21E-APOE
The Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore's web site is http://www.eapoe.org
On Oct. 1st, they will be hosting a tribute to Poe at his grave which is located in Baltimore at Westminister Burying Gardens on the corner of Fayette and Greene streets.
