About the Author: Edgar Allan Poe

The name Poe brings to mind images of murderers and madmen, premature burials, and mysterious women who return from the dead His works have been in print since and include such literary classics as The Tell Tale Heart, The Raven, and The Fall of the House of Usher This versatile writer s oeuvre includes short stories, poetry, a novel, a textbook, a book of scientific theory, and hundreds of essays and book reviews He is widely acknowledged as the inventor of the modern detective story and an innovator in the science fiction genre, but he made his living as America s first great literary critic and theoretician Poe s reputation today rests primarily on his tales of terror as well as on his haunting lyric poetryJust as the bizarre characters in Poe s stories have captured the public imagination so too has Poe himself He is seen as a morbid, mysterious figure lurking in the shadows of moonlit cemeteries or crumbling castles This is the Poe of legend But much of what we know about Poe is wrong, the product of a biography written by one of his enemies in an attempt to defame the author s nameThe real Poe was born to traveling actors in Boston on January , Edgar was the second of three children His other brother William Henry Leonard Poe would also become a poet before his early death, and Poe s sister Rosalie Poe would grow up to teach penmanship at a Richmond girls school Within three years of Poe s birth both of his parents had died, and he was taken in by the wealthy tobacco merchant John Allan and his wife Frances Valentine Allan in Richmond, Virginia while Poe s siblings went to live with other families Mr Allan would rear Poe to be a businessman and a Virginia gentleman, but Poe had dreams of being a writer in emulation of his childhood hero the British poet Lord Byron Early poetic verses found written in a young Poe s handwriting on the backs of Allan s ledger sheets reveal how little interest Poe had in the tobacco businessForinformation, please see.

    Let s face it the only thing Edgar Allan Poe ever did that was scary was marry his 14 year old cousin.But, beyond that, Mr Poe wasn t scary He was sad.And, yes, he was an I see dead people person, but not because he was obsessed with the occult He kept seeing actual dead people around him because everyone around him kept dropping dead.Not surprisingly, his poetry is filled with a near obsession with death and talking to the dead, but, again, everyone around him was dead.But, b Let s face it the only thing Edgar Allan Poe ever did that was scary was marry his 14 year old cousin.But, beyond that, Mr Poe wasn t scary He was sad.And, yes, he was an I see dead people person, but not because he was obsessed with the occult He kept seeing actual dead people around him because everyone around him kept dropping dead.Not surprisingly, his poetry is filled with a near obsession with death and talking to the dead, but, again, everyone around him was dead.But, but, but even though it s Halloween night and you might think I d like to get all sinister here, and discuss these dark matters This re read, thirty years after my original exposure to this collection, could not have been less about death It was about love The unlikely celebration of love here and the DIVINE FEMININE ENERGY that Mr Poe promotes on every page.And, oh, baby, did Mr Poe like the ladies Some examples of what s feminine in Poe s poems Beautythe Moonall celestial bodiesthe Evening StarcitiesNightSome examples of what s masculine in Poe s poems AmbitionLove this explains so much Death In addition, his poetry pays homage to Mary Psyche Helen DianaAthenaAnd dryads, and nymphs, and naiads, oh my But, the best poems for me were the ones written in dedication to his wife and his mother in law Yes, they were also known as his cousin and aunt, but after reading two poems in particular, Annabel Lee and To My Mother, you can t help but find yourself in awe of his capacity to love.And, for any of us who have ever made a misstep in love, and suffered regret, I leave you with two of the best lines in this collection years of love have been forgotIn the hatred of a minute What an unexpected celebration of love I found here Love amidst the cobwebs, the candy bar wrappers and the corpses

    This Review Blog Twitter Instagram Where the good and the bad and the worst and the best have gone to their eternal rest This review is going to be very short as I don t have much to say and as the book is short You have to take this review with a grain of sale as honestly it is a case of me, not the book I grabbed this because it was on a sale and I read a book or 2 of poetry every year It looks like classics and this old writing is just nor for me The main problem is that I This Review Blog Twitter Instagram Where the good and the bad and the worst and the best have gone to their eternal rest This review is going to be very short as I don t have much to say and as the book is short You have to take this review with a grain of sale as honestly it is a case of me, not the book I grabbed this because it was on a sale and I read a book or 2 of poetry every year It looks like classics and this old writing is just nor for me The main problem is that I honestly did not know what I was reading The ones I understood I did enjoy like Annabel Lee and The Raven and some of them I was just reading to finish them That s why this is a very subjective review and you still can enjoy it Summary The book has a collection of many Poems, some of which I understood and enjoyed and some were too complex for me, still worth giving a chance for fans of Poetry You can getbooks from Book Depository

    When I was younger I was under the impression Poe was just a sort of madman writer who seemed fixated on creepy imagery, death, shadows, fear, etc either because he was some mad genius, had a mental disorder, or was unduly affected by his fondness for alcohol In reading his poems one gets a less distorted and shallow sense of the man he was, essentially, lonely He craved companionship and love like most humans However, it appears he felt that Fate, God, and the Universe were unspeakably cru When I was younger I was under the impression Poe was just a sort of madman writer who seemed fixated on creepy imagery, death, shadows, fear, etc either because he was some mad genius, had a mental disorder, or was unduly affected by his fondness for alcohol In reading his poems one gets a less distorted and shallow sense of the man he was, essentially, lonely He craved companionship and love like most humans However, it appears he felt that Fate, God, and the Universe were unspeakably cruel to have taken his young bride barely 14 when he married her and a cousin t boot away from him so early on this seems to have triggered a grieving and sorrow in him he did not know how to dispel other than with the numbing effects of copious booze He does not seem to have drowned himself in drink in order to create and write, but to self medicate a deep pain Poe was a very romantic man His weakness for beauty and his romantic heart were what haunted his soul He was very intimate with darkness, the moon, the blackness of his personal sense of loss, and a profound, tormenting grief This theme of love sadly lost is woven throughout a good many of the poems in this collection Even his best known poems such as The Raven are suffused with his sorrow and sense of his own life as accursed His very portrait on the front of this collection is very telling if one but covers his forehead and chin and looks at his eyes A few of the poems areupbeat and hopeful, but even in these he seems to be celebrating a joy that was much too ephemeral to allow him much genuine solace His poetry is rarely obscure and difficult to read, unlike that of some poets who just leave me shaking my head in bewilderment as to the meaning As a whole, this book is one very clear, soul rattling shriek back at life, the life of a very talented man unable to wrestle himself from his aching sorrow I recommend you read this if you think he was just a dark, trippy writer of stories about a pit and pendulum, a tell tale heart, a black cat in his poetry he reveals the sad, all too human man he was beyond the dark tales and creepy shadows his pen took us to He consoled himself with that most human of visions that his lost love one was in paradise, a paradise he was unable to even approach in his all too short life

    Perhaps the most appealing poems to be read out loud.Some I likethan others.Some I struggled to understand.Some needed my concentration and devotion to be felt.All in all, an enjoyable collection, if Poe can be ever called enjoyable.

    Probably best when read drunk and listening to Lustmord.
