How mysterious! I studied Poe at school but I'd never heard this rather spooky story!

Hey, hey, hey! Hasn't anyone bothered to think that the Poe Toaster could be a woman?! It is in the dark that he/she comes, so noone can be sure. If you are positive that it is a man, then you haven't given this much thought, and you are sexist!!!!

How dare you call him a drunk, would it not be more respectful if he was called an alcoholic or if that was not mentioned at all even if it is the truth. We need not remember him for his problems but what he left us in writing.

I have never heard this story of the Toaster. As a Poe fan, I am intrigued.

I wondered about the pennies too when I visited, so I did a little research. In 1875, a local school teacher was shocked by the state of Poe's grave (which was located in the back of the graveyard). So a campaigne was started, "Pennies for Poe," to raise money for a more fitting grave marker (the large marble monument located at the front of the cemetery). And so, it is traditional for people to

A wonderful tradition - and uniquely Baltimore. It's a wonder that he has never been unmasked.

My grandmother, who lives on the Eastern Shore of MD, told me about the mysterious visitor when I was a little kid. I have a vague recollection that she thought it was a woman... how interesting to learn that she's a he. Great tale of real life intrigue! Thanks for the reminder.

Great story. You have ancestors' buried there? That would made for an interesting story too!!!

Very interesting piece. It's brought back memories of eighth grade english and reading The Cask of Amontillado for the first time -scary.

He was born this weekend, not died. And in Boston. He died in October in Baltimore.

So full of Southern charm, what a lovely tradition.
If I ever move back, I'm living in the South.

I love the romance of this tradition, and the fact that the identity of the Toaster remains a mystery.

I love Alan Poe, among other victorian authors! :-) Thanks for the informative post!

By the way, I read your comment on the elegantologist's blog regarding you wanting to move back to England. I can so relate to that! I lived in London for 5 years and miss it every day. My husband (American) and I have made the decision that overall there are more opportunities for us in the USA but our
