Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on January 19, 1809. When he was a child, Edgar wrote so much poetry that by the time he was thirteen he had enough poems to fill a book. Throughout his life, he wrote poetry, short stories, mysteries, and literary reviews for magazines. Edgar is best known for his dark and scary stories and as the inventor of detective fiction, but most wanted to be remembered as the editor of a literary magazine. Some of his most famous works are “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Fall of the House of Usher,” and “The Raven.”
