Graham's Magazine was a Philadelphia-based periodical established by George Rex Graham. Graham hired Edgar Allan Poe as a critic and editor in February 1841. Poe complained about the content of Graham's. He disliked "the contemptible pictures, fashion-plates, music and love tales" for which the magazine was known. Graham, however, was aware of Poe's status as an author and critic. He introduced his new editor in the pages of the magazine: "Mr. POE is too well known in the literary world to require a word of commendation" .
