Recently started reading a book of his works and I wanted to put on some music while I read. That lead me to wondering about what kind of music might have been influencing Poe and maybe some of his works? It looks like he lived mostly in the “Romantic” period of music so I guess he probably liked music from that era? I’m sure he listened to older music as well.
Searching this question on the web lead me nowhere, but I did see someone suggest that he probably at least heard the popular music of the time in Baltimore in bars and what not.
It would be killer if anyone knew about specific pieces he may have mentioned or referenced but I know that could be a stretch… maybe I could find some more answers in r/books or something too. Thanks for sharing if you know anything!
