Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1909), I, 197–198, cited by Grubb, “Part Two” 115. Cf. Poe’s letters to Lowell dated 30 March, 28 May and 2 July 1844, in Ostrom 246–247, 253–254, and 258 respectively. This biographical sketch was planned for the September 1844 issue, but it appeared later, in the February 1845 issue. Gerald G. Grubb mentions that at the time of Bulwer-Lytton’s planned visit to the United States in 1844, Poe compared both writers and praised Dickens as the greatest (see Grubb, “Part Two” 119–120).

We just have to look at the first years of the Sevillian writer to see how they resemble the life of Poe: whereas the American author became an orphan at three and then adopted by a young and prosperous couple from Richmond, Bécquer lost his parents when he was nine and was left to the care of his godmother. If we go on to unveil the life stories of each of them, we can see how they both tried to earn a living on their own writings after having left behind their respective adoptive families; once Poe realized that he had been tricked by his new father when this broke his promise of paying for his university studies, he quit Charlottesville to live in Baltimore with his aunt Maria Clemn.
