Coffee with Poe combines actual Poe letters to weave the tale of his life. The gothic writter was as much a master of letters as he was poetry or short stories. Who knew he loved so many women or that he married his 13 year-old first cousin? Poe's interaction with other literary figures of the day such as Dickens and Hawthorne is also interesting. From cradle to grave this is the tragic account of 'America's first poet' and it should not be missed.

Barger is a great craftsman and wordsmith weaving a great adventure in the life of Poe from actual documents and letters. We have letters from 3 women who loved Poe and they breathe more life into this stimulating tome.
I would recommend this to lovers of American writers and poets.
Here we see Poe made human, hauntingly so.

Coffee with Poe is the story of Poe's life and although it is a novel, seamlessly includes many actual letters from his many romances and literary figures of the time. I especially liked the chapter where Poe meets Dickens. Anyone wanting a great read or anyone with interest in Poe will be interested in this book.

HASH(0xa469a228) out of 5 stars An enjoyable read! July 24 2007
By Dark Romantic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Certainly not a new concept of combining fact and fiction, this really is an enjoyable, quick read on Edgar Allan Poe. Barger has some interesting theories on Poe's mysterious life and writes in a very engaging style that keeps you reading. I admire how clear the author is in showing what text comes from Poe's actual letters and where he has filled in the gaps with fiction. Recommended!

HASH(0xa469a1d4) out of 5 stars Still struggling through it... Dec 23 2008
By Amy C. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book sounded so intriguing when I read the summary. I appreciate the research done on Poe's life, but I feel more research could have been done on the customs and practices of the specific time period. There a quite a few historical inaccuracies sprinkled throughout the book. They are minor for the most part and not pivotal to the "plot", but they still bothered me. A few other minor details rankled me a bit. The author, in Poe's voice, refers to Virginia's metronome as a "piano timer." I hardly think Poe would not have known the proper name for the device.
I am still working my way through the book. I have, for the most part, skipped over the included letters to and from Poe. I'm not sure why most of them were included since the author summarizes them before incorporating them completely.
I am going to try to finish the book, making sure to break at regular intervals to minimize the hair-pulling. If you just want to read about Poe in his own voice, have at this one. However, if you're looking for historical fiction, skip it and read Schecter.

HASH(0xa469a198) out of 5 stars Excellent Read! Oct. 21 2013
By Kate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I came across this book accidentally searching Poe on the web. But I am so glad I found it!

Overall, the work is impressive. I appreciate the obvious care the author took in getting his facts right and I appreciate his portrayals of many of the characters.

Poe especially is portrayed in a sympathetic light. Although I disagree with the author's decision regarding the Poe-Osgood "affair" I was mostly pleased with how the issues of Poe's "alcoholism" and other faults were handled.
