Edgar Allan Poe
A short and convenient biography by Kaden Murray
Edgar Allan Poe was an American author and claimed to be ruthless literature reviewer that did not achieve worldwide fame until after his death. He had a very disturbing past. Most of his loved ones died of disease, and his life was plagued with disease and death.
Both parent's died when Poe was at a very young age, and he was adopted by a successful businessman, who was in the business of tobacco sales. He spent most of his childhood writing.
Edgar Allan Poe's first published writing did not become published until 1827, despite him writing throughout his entire writing.
His first book, Tamerlane and Other Poems. He was credited with just a handful of free copies of the book as pay. He later wrote more stories, often with dark and twisted plots and storylines, and the famous poem "The Raven" is arguably is most popular piece.
However Poe wrote many other stories that did not and still have not achieved the fame they arguably deserve, most of which containing brutal, dark, and mysterious storylines, a reflection of his own tragic life. I believe he used writing as an outlet to run from his past and turn his nightmares into fiction, no longer real in his mind.
