[2015] Lauren Victor: Edgar Allan Poe

Poe's short story “The Raven“ made him a well-known author in America instantly. There are tales of children walking behind him on the street and flapping their arms and cawing. He would, so they say, play along by turning suddenly and saying "Nevermore."At the age of 26, Poe married Virginia Clemm, his 13 year old cousin. She died 12 years later from tuberculosis, and is believed to be the influence of Poe's work (where he made the young women die).

Edgar Allan Poe is known for his short stories, such as The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven, The Angel of the Odd, and The Black Cat.Fun fact: Poe is considered "the inventor of the detective fiction genre."

Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston on January 19, 1809. Poe lived a short life of 40 years. He was an American poet, editor, literary critic, and an author. He was known for his mysterious and unusual pieces of literature, which are now in every literacy book in America.


Stanza One:"Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore- While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. "Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door- Only this, and nothing more." "

Paragraph One:During the whole of a dull, dark, and soundless day in the autumn of the year, when the clouds hung oppressively low in the heavens, I had been passing alone, on horseback, through a singularly dreary tract of country, and at a length found myself, as the shades of evening drew on, within view of the melancholy House of Usher.
