Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe


January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849

Poe was my God of Fiction. I used to love the horrible and the grotesque–much more than I do now–and can recall tales of murderers, spirits, reincarnations, metempsychoses, and every shudder-producing device known to literature!

H. P. Lovecraft also visited the Poe Cottage on September 23, 1924. This time with Samuel Loveman.

    In high school, we studied Poe’s Tell-Tale Heart. It still chills me!

    I have an Illustrated treasury about Poe from Metro. It contains facsimiles of his letters, drafts, and more. One day I’ll have to reread his writings.

    On your recommendation I’m reading Edgar Allan Poe’s Vol-1… thanks for introducing me to such a fine author 🙂

    PS: Just wanted to know if it’s okay with you if I add your name in my review for this one, in the “recommended by” section…?
