First published in April of 1846, Poe's essay, "The Philosophy of Composition," outlines his theory of the creation of a literary work. Using his poem, "The Raven," as a model for explanation, Poe describes how literary works are, in fact, fabricated from materials consciously chosen for specific purposes and effects. The essay details both Poe's literary theories and practices while also providing an example of analytical criticism.
