    Edgar Allen Poe is one of the greatest poets. He's scary, weird, and wrote some insane tales. Virtually all of Edgar Allen Poe's stories concerned themes of human perversity and involve the technique of ratiocination.

Their house is falling apart and this man has come to try to fix it, but that is n...

He was equally as talented at poetry, detective stories, and as a literary critic. Many controversies surrounded Poe in death as well ...

    D. H. Lawrence wrote an essay that extensively describes Edgar Allen Poe's writing style. Lawrence looks at Poe's work as a scientific and mechanical way of writing. The tales Poe writes are not really tales at all. The only reason they are even considered as tales is because they are a concatenation of cause and effect.
