    Edgar Allan Poe Exhibition Opens at the Morgan - NYTimes.com

    Edgar Allan Poe, among the unluckiest and most misunderstood of writers, is the subject of a tasteful, thoughtful exhibition that opens on Friday at the Morgan Library & Museum about 100 years too late to do his reputation much good. Among Poes misfortunes is that many of his American contemporaries found his work morbid and unreadable. In some ways, he was the Mickey Rourke or Jerry Lewis of 19th-century letters, better appreciated in France, by writers like Baudelaire and Mallarm, than he was at home.
