    In the misty mid region of Weir—
    —Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    During these fits of absolute unconsciousness I drank, God only knows how often or how much. As a matter of course, my enemies referred the insanity to the drink rather than the drink to the insanity. I had indeed, nearly abandoned all hope of a permanent cure when I found one in the death of my wife.
    —Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    I was a child and she was a child,
    In this kingdom by the sea;
    But we loved with a love which was more than love --
    I and my Annabel Lee.
    —Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1845)
