Edgar Allan Poe
(January 19, 1809, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.— October 7, 1849, Baltimore, Maryland)
Edgar Allan Poe was an American author, poet, editor and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career. His publishing career began humbly, with an anonymous collection of poems, Tamerlane and Other Poems (1827). In January 1845 Poe published his poem, "The Raven", to instant success. His works influenced literature around the world, as well as in specialized fields, such as cosmology and cryptography. Poe and his work appear throughout popular culture in literature, music, films, and television.
