“Edgar Allan Poe: His Life and Writings, Part 1 (1809-1841) is an online American Literature Course where no mortal students have ever gone before. It covers the highest level of reading and writing on Poe’s life and writings from his early years in Boston, London, and Richmond, where he defines poetry as the idea of beauty and advances the literature of science fiction, to his life in Philadelphia where he writes his greatest short stories, inventing the detective story and psychological realism in world literature.

INSTRUCTOR: Paul Macek has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in both history and English. He has taught U.S. History and American Literature at the high school level for over twenty-five years. He has also worked as a proofreader and copyeditor for thirty years. Paul is the author of seven books, five on history, one on education, and one on literature.
