Meet the Author

Author, poet, and literary critic, Edgar Allan Poe is credited with pioneering the short story genre, inventing detective fiction, and contributing to the development of science fiction. However, Poe is best known for his works of the macabre, including such infamous titles as “The Raven,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “The Murders in the Rue Morgue,” “Lenore,” and “The Fall of the House of Usher.” Part of the American Romantic Movement, Poe was one of the first writers to make his living exclusively through his writing, working for literary journals and becoming known as a literary critic. His works have been widely adapted in film. Edgar Allan Poe died of a mysterious illness in 1849 at the age of 40.

    Poetry First-Timer

    As summer's coming to an end, <br>
    I figured l'd try a poetry trend.<br>
    So l'll rhyme in my post to you,<br>
    And to all my other friends too.<br>
    I find l'm not too good at this poetry stuff,<br>
    So don't blame me if it's not up to sn<_>uff.<br>
    But l'll say it's not bad for a first sh<_>ot,<br>
    And it's the thought that counts, l've been taught.<br>
    So good luck to all the other contesters,<br>
    Whose poems are all probably best-er.<p>

    POEM #1

    The light will only shine on the other side
    For all others who bask in its rays
    Will supposedly be rewarded
    As i prowl in the shade of the tree
    The shade attacking me
    But i make no movement
    For always will the light only shine on the other side
    ~~~~~Ravenwing

    Plz read this

    Pray to God every night .
    Or just fall asleep with nothing said .
    Love the other half .
    Or just look her i the eye with no words .
    Hold my hand .
    My child i do love you .
    But it's hard to provide for you .
    Is that what you say to your baby .
    Do you tell him there is nothing left .
    That they have no home .
    Or do you make the difference .
    Fight for that baby .
    Hold you wife .
    Start over .
    Make a promise .
    Keep it .
    Buy your baby that toy .
    Pay for a nice dinner .
    Make sure everything will be okay .
    Watch you baby grow up .
    Grow old with you wife .
    Make that difference .
    Dont let you life slip .
    Hold it together .
    Love them all and do it well its your life and your family's .
