Famous Authors: Edgar Allan Poe

One of the most original and dominant figures in American literature during the 19th Century was Edgar Allen Poe. His stories and poems have influenced generations of American writers and scared millions of readers with his timeless Gothic tales. This PBS home video examines the truths and debunks the myths about this famous writer who was haunted by his own personal demons; it also reveals the sources of his imaginative stories. In his life Poe was a writer, editor, critic, and poet with a tragic life that was filled with melancholy, depression, and alcoholism, only to end mysteriously just prior to his fortieth birthday. ~ Forrest Spencer
