This is an important and stylish plaque and I wish I’d been there to see Berkoff unveil it.
There is also a bust of Poe.
You can see it being unveiled here:
When instructing people orally how to find this blog, I tell them “It’s topography with a Poe in front of it!”
So this post is overdue. Like some of the authors who have featured in these pages – Joyce is another – Poe is more famous for his prose, but is also a poet. That they are also poets makes their prose all the better.
Poe, like Joyce, is a flabbergasting genius.
