Rest in Peace…

Yesterday was the anniversary of a death of a great a man. The inventor of the short story, the madman of that created a world where non-fiction mixed with fiction. The poor tortured soul he was, and yet he gave life the tales of short horror, mystery, and gore stories throughout his 40 years of life.

EDGAR ALLAN POE

He lost his mother, his first love, his first cousin, and 3 wives to a single disease. (Let me try to sound it out here) Ter-ber-cu-low-sis, is how I think you pronounce it anyways. But his first love died of brain cancer not the other mentioned disease that claimed the rest of the women in his life. He had the happy times to but they were scarce among his time. And even though his stories were fantastic, he often made little money off of them making him usually very poor. He wrote the poems/stories called;

THE RAVEN

MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE

THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH

and many more which are still remembered today. RIP Edgar Allan Poe…
