The current text is based on User:PaulinSaudi's original unformatted cut-and-paste from an unknown source, with proofreading by me based on http://www.eapoe.org/WorkS/poems/aaraafc.htm. Poe's footnotes are copied from that same page, by me.
Here (JSTOR link) is an essay titled Some Notes on Poe's "Al Aaraaf", by William B. Cairns, published in Modern Philology 13:1 (May 1915). It's out of copyright in the United States, so if someone could find a complete copy (for example, by having a JSTOR account) and upload it, that would be much appreciated. --220.127.116.11 09:04, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
