I love Edgar Allan Poe he is by far one of the most brilliant writers of all time in my opinion. I feel that Annabel Lee was so heartfelt and so beautiful that it really drew me in as soon as I started reading it I did not want to stop. It made me love grim but insightful readings like "The Raven" which was also a remarkable poem.

About the author (1998)

Author, poet, and literary critic, Edgar Allan Poe is credited with pioneering the short story genre, inventing detective fiction, and contributing to the development of science fiction. However, Poe is best known for his works of the macabre, including such infamous titles as "The Raven," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," "Lenore," and "The Fall of the House of Usher." Part of the American Romantic Movement, Poe was one of the first writers to make his living exclusively through his writing, working for literary journals and becoming known as a literary critic. His works have been widely adapted in film. Edgar Allan Poe died of a mysterious illness in 1849 at the age of 40.
