Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
"'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door

Edgar Allan Poe, a resounding name in the field of classic literature. He pioneered the genre of gothic romanticism, drawing in an audience through his horrifying and gory tales of lore.
The Raven, Annabel Lee, The house of Usher, The pendulum, all these and several more of his works have established a legacy borne of the alluring subject of death. Poe led a life that wasnt one to be envied. Orphaned at a young age, drifting through several ill paid jobs that did no justice to his strong prowess with words. A classic case of misunderstood genius.
All his works explore the various qualities of death in ways that only seek to defy the rational mind. He might have brought about the works of detective fiction. His story, Murder at the Rue Morgue was the first detective mystery. Its subtle details inspiring a million more iconic characters of popular culture such as Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot.
His end came early in suspicious circumstances. The actual cause of his death is still debated over by various literary historians. Critics hounded his success and sought to blacken his image in society by associated words such as drunk and delirious with him. The slander against him only worked to make a wider public audience read through his works. The thrill of watching a mad mans mind at work.
Now, a huge cult figure whose popularity has gone unblemished by the tides of time, his works continue to be a part of popular literature. Anyone that dares claim themselves a proponent of the beautiful subject of horror absolutely has to familiarize themselves with the best of it.
