The Misery of Edgar Allan Poe

The face of misery can often be described as none other than Edgar Allan Poe. So often his likeness and works are related to “goth” characters on television or the everyday person who feels different from the world around them. Have you ever wondered what was so significant in Poe’s life to cause not only a great deal of mental diagnoses but some of the most beautifully sorrowful works of art ever created? We’re going to take a stroll through the misery of Edgar Allan Poe and his life. Starting when he was born all the way until his untimely and mysterious death. Join me in the year 1809 as we discuss and dissect this disturbed yet infamous man of mystery.
