I grew up a huge Edgar Allen Poe fan – I think many young boys do the same after being introduced to his writing. I started reading Poe around the 3rd grade so I was a little ahead of the school-assigned reading that was to come.
Edgar Allen Poe 1809-1849
While so many have read his classic stories (“A Tale Tale Heart”, “The Fall of the House of Usher” etc) I became a fan of his “deep cuts” so so speak – the titles that aren’t normally included with school assignments.
I recall quickly jumping from more common short stories like “The Black Cat” to more obscure ones like “The System of Dr. Tarr & Professor Feather” or “A Predicament”
I also became increasingly curious about his actual life and history – what kind of man was he? How did he move about in society?
