One of the most enigmatic names in America literature is that of Edgar Allan Poe. Born in America of Americans, the major portion of his works were written in his native country and, with the exception of an occasional phrase or two used to create effect or atmosphere, all his works were written in his native tongue. This would naturally lead one to suppose that he would be a national favorite, widely read, freely quoted, universally admired.
