When I was a young child, Edgar Alan Poe was the first author to awaken in me the understanding that words and language on their own, can create images in my mind.

For Edgar Alan Poe and Mrs Bradshaw, my third grade teacher. She introduced Poe to our class, many of us for whom English was not our first language.  I am grateful to both of them for opening this world to me.
