Meet the Author

Edgar Allan Poe was an American poet, short story writer,
playwright, editor, critic, essayist and one of the leaders of the
American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of the macabre
and mystery, Poe was one of the early American practitioners of the
short story and a progenitor of detective fiction and crime
fiction. He is also credited with contributing to the emergent
science fiction genre.Poe died at the age of 40. The cause of his
death is undetermined and has been attributed to alcohol, drugs,
cholera, rabies, suicide (although likely to be mistaken with his
suicide attempt in the previous year), tuberculosis, heart disease,
brain congestion and other agents.
