    • That’s Edgar Allan Poe’s exploration of the universe
    • That’s his metaphysical study of the soul
    • That’s his search for unity between the poetic and the scientific
    • That’s his quest for synthesis between the material and spiritual

To help us in our efforts we have created an Indiegogo Fundraising Campaign. You can join the Indiegogo Campaign for Poe’s Eureka.

Robert Michael Oliver’s one-man show Embodying Poe: poetry-in-performance, which premiered at the 2011 Capital Fringe Festival, concluded with Poe’s mystical excursion into outer space.

If Poe’s black bird ends in a haunting madness, his Eureka: a prose poem offers a vision of hope.

Poe’s Eureka presents a greater challenge, however. It imaginative foray into cosmic splendor needs cinematography to match its wonder.
