    I Respect Him...

      Once in the 11th grade I did a report on him. Then I realised..he's not a weird'o with creepy poems. He's a man who eventually lost every woman he loved. I can't imagine everybody I possibly love, end up dying-as if I was a curse....

    Awesome

    Love Edgar Alan Poe, I must say. So morbid and twisted right up my alley. His writings remind me alot of my own, although regrettably, the novel I'm currently working on is nowhere near his twisted greatness. But yes, I love his style. I love the morbid, twisted, deliciousness...

    I Like Poe...

    For one thing, we share the same birthday. If it weren't for Poe who knows how the detective story genre might have developed? Poe is noted as the first author to have a detective story published (The Tell-Tale Heart). Also, I love his other works - the first master of the...
