Edgar Allan Poe

Born on 19 January, 1809 in Boston, Massachusetts, Edgar Allan Poe has made a lasting impact on popular culture and his dark and macabre poems and short stories including The Black Cat, The Bells and The Raven have influenced many writers.

The son of an actor and actress, Edgar’s father abandoned his family when he was 1 year old and his mother died a year later. It is believed he is named after a character from King Lear and his writing style was very mysterious and evocative. Edgar also worked as a literary critic and before his death on 7 October, 1849 he was found in a state of disarray, calling out the name ‘Reynolds’ and wearing someone else’s clothes.
