Transcript of Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe By Anthony Dold Just who is Edgar Allan Poe? Just about everyone knows he's a poet, who wouldn't be able to remember his works after hearing one? Aside from being a poet though what would most think of him? A mad man perhaps, after reading of his work. The thought of murderers, madmen, premature burials, and women who mysteriously come back from the grave. Most would probably agree he is most famous for his haunting and terrirfying litterary works. Edgar was born in January 19, 1809. He was the second of three children, him his older brother William Henry Leonard Poe, and his little sister Rosalie Poe. Now just what does this man look like? See? A very 'sane' looking person wouldn't you agree? This is his poem called 'A Dream'
Perhaps a sad mood to it but a wonderful litterary piece. Rhyme Scheme: ABAB CDCD EFEF GHGH This is another one of his poems, this one being 'A Dream Within A Dream'. Another one of his poems to leave you with a strange feeling inside. Rhyme Scheme: ABBCCDDEE FFGGHHHIIJJKK Rhyme Scheme: AABBCCDDEEFFGGHHIIJJ A last quick look into his poetry,
this is 'Imitation'. Another strange literary piece right? They give you sad or a strange feeling inside. But no, if you were hoping, Mr. Poe was NOT a murderer. Edgar Allan Poe lived perhaps a sad life, filled with the death of loved ones, the disowning of him from his father, and at times having his poetry fail in sales. Poe died at the age of forty on October 7, 1849. He was found in the bar room of a public house that was being used as a polling place for an election, in Baltimore. He was taken to a hospital, far away from loved ones, surrounded by strangers. He died after days of being in a hospital bed. By the age of thirteen Poe had written enough poetry to publich a book, but his headmaster advised his father against it. John Allan and Frances Valentine Allan were what he had as parents. They took him in after both his birth parents had died three years after his birth. His siblings were moved to other families. John Allan tried to have poe become a businessman and a Virginia gentleman, but Poe had dreams of becoming a writer, emulating his childhood hero the British poet Lord Byron.
