Transcript of Edger Allen Poe

By Nolan Ford Edgar Allan Poe Family Education In 1831, Edgar Allan Poe went to New York City where he had some of his poetry published. He submitted stories to a number of magazines and they were all rejected. Poe had no friends, no job, and was in financial trouble. He sent a letter to John Allan begging for help but none came. John Allan died in 1834 and did not mention Edgar in his will.
In 1835, Edgar finally got a job as an editor of a newspaper because of a contest he won with his story, "The Manuscript Found in a Bottle". Struggling writer Edgar Allan Poe was in the U.S. Army, Fort Moultrie, South Carolina, and Fortress Monroe, Virginia threw May 26, 1827, to April 15, 1829, sergeant major honorable discharge.

Edgar Allan Poe was born January 19, 1809 and 3 years later the son of David Poe Jr. and Elizabeth Arnold Poe, both are professional actors by the time he was 3 Edgar, his older brother and his younger sisters were orphans. The father deserted the family, and the mother died. The children were each sent to different families to live. Edgar went to the Richmond, Virginia, home of John and Frances Allan, whose name Poe was to take later as his own middle name. Edgar Allan Poe went to school at Grammar School: in Irvine, Scotland in 1815 then Sloane Street, London in 1815-16 then Manor House School, Stoke Newington threw 1817-20

Following Virginia's death in January 1847, Poe was engaged to be married to Sarah Helen Whitman. This engagement was broken off at the end of 1848 by Sarah. Actually, there is reason to believe he was relieved and may have broken a promise of abstinence to initiate the breakup. (He was also writing and professed his love for Annie Richmond at the time but she was married.)

In 1849, while on a lecture tour in Richmond, Virginia, he again courted his childhood sweetheart, Elmira Royster Shelton but there is some dispute whether they ever became officially engaged. He died before they could be married. Death & Burial Poems and Stories (con.) "The Raven".
