"A Poe Webliography: Edgar Allan Poe on the Internet"
This critical guide to online and CD-ROM resources on Edgar Allan Poe is an online version of a 1997 article by Rutgers University professor Heyward Ehrlich. The nine chapters and five appendices include organized links to sites providing biographical information, critical literary commentary, research guides, historical sites and museums, and more. The sites included in this impressive collection are geared toward research rather than interactive exploration.
This isn’t one of those VR art apps that ‘expands’ on the foundations; you don’t jump inside the portrait of the Mona Lisa to see what’s behind her, or explore Vincent Van Gough’s Night Cafe to find the painter himself hiding around the corner. If anything, I wished to further embody the narrator, sitting by the warmth of the fire in hopes it might thaw my icy heart. I’d love to see a more interpretative take too — there’s certainly space for something more creative — but as a straight adaptation, this works well.
