J.W.Ocker: The Hallowed Haunts of Edgar Allen Poe
Friday, 2014 - 2015 dates at 7:00 PM in the Henry Wilson Museum at the Goodwin Library
Edgar Allan Poe was an oddity. His life was odd, his literature is odd, his legacy is odd. Actually, his legacy is the oddest part about him. In Poe-Land: The Hallowed Haunts of Edgar Allan Poe, J. W. Ocker explores Poe’s strange physical legacy along the U.S. East Coast and across the ocean by touring Poe’s homes, examining artifacts from his life—locks of his hair, pieces of his coffin, original manuscripts, the bed where his wife died—and traveling to the many memorials dedicated to him.Schedule for 2014-2015 year is coming.
