    His works are wonderful!

    !! Sorry if I sound too philosophical, but I can see why everything happens for a reason when I go over Poe's biography. All the terrible things that happened to him might have seemed catastrophic, but thanks to them we can now seize the beauty in his poems and tales. That...

    There is a fatal trick to his intelligence

    Bloody Brilliant...literally

    Edgar Allen Poe is, in my mind, one of the most brilliant authors. There is just no other way to describe his work. What I admire most is his willingness to explore the dark, and psychotic part of the human psyche...in depth. There are very few things that I admire more than a...

    Never More...

    Time for my Poe fix, it's been a while but I'm going to have to read The Tell Tale Heart. That one gets my heart pumping (forgive the pun) but it's my favorite and I love how grotesquely comforting it makes me feel.

    Classic Horror

    I read The Tell-tale Heart when I was ten years old, and was an instant Poe fan. I loved his stories and how slow and dreadful they were.... how intricate his descriptions were... how creepy his settings were. I have his entire collection in my library.

    He is my favorite writer of all time.

    I have a collection of his complete works. His works are ****** up, maniacal, and incredibly dark. Most days this is the perfect description of who I am. I call this side of myself, my Inner Poe. My Inner Poe is what I am trying to get rid of or, more likely, tame.

    Why I Love The Raven

    I fell instantly in love with Poe's poems when I read The Raven. I grew up with a pet raven that my dad rescued as a baby in the early 1960s when I was a kid. My dad was always bringing home baby birds or injured animals to rescue. We named the raven Pete but called him Petie. He...
