Is there a name for the effect caused by trees on both sides of a road when their leaves kiss in the middle and create a canopy? My husband loves roads like that, where you drive under the trees. And until yesterday, we had a kissing canopy of eucalyptus in front of our house.

#3. Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe Printable (** for premium members only)
Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American poet and short-story author, known as a master of the macabre, but also credited with pioneering work in the detective genre and science fiction. Born in Boston, MA, Poe was orphaned at an early age. The cause of his death at age forty has never been determined, and is the subject of much speculation.
Edgar Allan Poe Museum
“The Poe Museum provides a retreat into early 19th century Richmond where Edgar Allan Poe lived and worked. The museum features Poe’s life and career by documenting his accomplishments with pictures, relics, and verse, and focusing on his many years in Richmond. “Although not all the exhibits are online, reasons for a virtual visit include a Poe biography, family tree, selected works, genealogical records from the Poe family bible (in Museum Treasures) and an interactive quiz (under Educational Resources.)
Created for middle and high school students, Knowing Poe is a multimedia educational portal for exploring the man, the writer and his works, and is my Poe pick of the week. In Poe the Person, you’ll discover what Baltimore was like at the beginning of the nineteenth century, and learn more about Poe’s mysterious death. In Poe the Writer, you’ll learn about how authors use point of view to tell a story from a character’s or narrator’s perspective. The Poe Library includes a selection of Poe’s personal letters, links to poems and short stories, and links to additional research sites.
Many Books: Edgar Allan Poe
There are many sites for downloading free classics, but I chose Many Books because of their clean interface, and the variety of their download formats. Specifically I was thrilled to see the native Kindle format, although nowadays PDFs are also Kindle compatible. This download site includes the five volumes of “Collected Words of Poe”, “The Fall of the House of Usher,” and a four volume “Masterpieces of Mystery” which is an anthology that includes Poe as well as A. Conan Doyle and Anton Chekhov.
