Who was edgar allen poe?
Edgar Allan Poe (born Edgar Poe on January 19, 1809 in Boston, Massachusetts) was an American writer, best known for his poetry, and short stories.
Two of his best poems are The Raven (1845) and The Bells (1849), with two of his masterful short stories being The Fall of the House of Usher (1839) and The Masque of the Red Death (1842).
His true cause of death (October 7, 1849 at the age of 40 in Baltimore, Maryland) to this day remains a mystery, though the most recent theory suggests that it was caused by a brain tumor.
A new thriller, titled The Raven, uses Poe's works as the plot's background. The film is slated for release on April 27, 2012.
