DUH!!! He got mugged!! He was soo drunk that he did't even know what happened to him!! Why do you think he had someone else's clothes on?!! It's self explanatory!!

He was so happy with his first cousin that drunk them self to death

-- Anonymous, December 04, 2000

In my opinion, he had a weak heart. After becoming an alcoholic in college, he couldn't give it up.(he wasn't an alcholic, exactly but he had a low tolerance for alcohol) I think he stopped drinking completely for a period while he visited Sarah Royster Shelton, but as soon as he left he went drinking one night. (this is my theory) He probably passed out on the street. But all they really know is that he was found on the street and died four days later in a hospital. (he wasn't found in somebody else's clothes) :-D I'm doing a biography on him too.

Pure and simple. Edgar Allan Poe died of rabies

I had to do a term paper on Poe and I found a few answers. Ones like, mugging, alcohol, depression, but then I found a sight where a man named Benitez worked on Poe's body and found he hd been biten and was diagonsed with Rabies. Within four days of the bite, with no immediate treatment, a person can die. Benitez claimed that is the true explaination. If you need the site, write me. -Liz

Actually I really do not know if any one has the answer e-mail me please I love Edgar Allen Poe, HE inspires me to write in the style I write. I believe he was a very depressed msn. Just get back to me thank you all.

Edgar Allan Poe Died from rabies. Dr. Benitez did a study on him in 1996. When examining the body of Poe's bone marrow they found substances of rabies. This would explain why he didn't move or talk much in the last 4 days in the hospital. Now the whole other persons clothes thing can be answered with his being a drunk. Its that plain. Edgar Allan Poe was killed by some small rat or maybe a Cat... That would be fitting!?!?

I have no clue how he died, but while reading other peoples answeres, you can include a little of this and a little of that. I only have advice, and that would be to check his background, see if it's a fact that he was a alchoholic, and see if you can get as many facts about his personality, then i suggest you to use what you have.

Edgar Allan Poe suffered from a metabolic illness--possibly diabetes. This accounts for his "visions" and his behavior even when drinking small amounts of alcohol. I have heard about the rabbies "theory" yet--I think he possibility that he died of a heart attack from his diabetes should be looked i

-- Anonymous, December 11, 2000

Wow! I can't help but laugh at some of the answers. EAP was not a drunkard; however, he did drink absinthe and he did have a low tolerance for alcohol. In all of my research on Poe, I have seen one thing that tended to remain consistent and that is exactly what Annie ( posted on December 04, 2000. In fact, a quote by George Bernard Shaw has always stuck in my mind; it's something to the effect that "Poe has drunk as much in his lifetime as most modern American writers have drunk in six months." In 1849, Griswold, Poe's American literary executor, was left with a book by Poe that was almost complete (or recently completed) when Poe died. To gain interest in the book (i.e., to make a buck), Griswold basically smeared Poe's reputation and made mountains out of molehills. Charles Baudelaire, Poe's literary executor in France, painted a much more realistic image of Poe; therefore, today we see a much more favorable reception of Poe and his works in Europe than we do in America. About a study conducted on Poe that proved he died of rabies, I have heard the rumors. If the person who mentioned the study could provide a citation to support that claim, I would be quite interested in reading about that.

It seems a bit funny to think that so many of us use this information of Poe to be a joke in time.I on the other hand respect the true nature of the great writer himself.I have studied Poe throughout my life and have found that he has the immortal solitude to be enjoying his afterlife.I dont think anyone knows how he died for truth.But one thing rest assured, he lives beyond the confines of the waking world.........

I have also heard about Poe dying of rabies. I think that if he hadn't died of rabies or any alcohol related problems that perhaps T.B would have captured his life. Like his loved ones before him.

As for everyone saying "depression", "alcohol", "mugged" and what- not. You need to look at the facts. Yes, he was depressed, but he'd been depressed his whole life. I'm not saying one or the other is correct but facts are better than hear-say or something you made up because that's what you wanted to believe. I suggest you look up Dr. Benitez at Chulalongkorn University and see for yourself what he found and what he thinks really happened to one of the greatest writers, Poe.

Well some people say he was found half drunk half in a concution. But then my teacher had told us that one of his close friends had turned on him and changed his records.And then later on doctors studied him and said that he might have died from rabies. But we do know that his close friend had indeed changed the records so he can look like a mad man go crazy who was an acholic.And the mystery still goes on.

I know for a known fact that he was bit by a dog, raped by a racoon, and was in love with a snake he told me this last night in my cycic memory.

I think Edger Allan Poe died of two things.One depression he was so sad bout loseing almost all the people he loved that the miserie he was feeling killed him.But it had a little help,i think his drinking played a big part,his body must have been brutly damaged from all that alcohal intake that finally he calasped.

-- Anonymous, October 30, 2002

O.K. everybody its like this. Poe was found dead and unconcious in an alley. when broght to the hopital his breath did not smell of alcohol. they wanted to give him alcohol treatment but he refused because he was still sober. he was raving for hours and the next hour he would be fine. he could barely drink water because his throut hurt too much. all these conditions pionted to one thing...rabies. now it is rare yeah but it still happens to regular people. they dont foam at the mouth(thats only in movies) but it does make you have sharp pains, an extreamly sore throat, and makes you go crazy for hours at a time. now its not like you have to be biten that same day to start feeling the effects because it can take up a whole year before it starts actin up. this was study by some scientist in maryland or somewhere. a lot of other scientists believe this theory while others dont. i belieive this is true. what you think is up to you.

There are several clues to wether or not Poe was mugged, or if he indeed died of rabies. The truth is: No one knows for sure, and wherever you go, you aren't going to get a strait answer. Some will say he had a week heart, some will say he drank too much. Others will say that he was mugged, and then there are those who say he had rabbies. Those seem to be the most frequent answers out there to the cause of Poe's death, god rest his soul, and you're not going to get more descriptive than that. I, too, love Poe's work, and it does inspire me as well.

No test of Poe's bone marrow has ever been made. Having been buried now for over 150 years in fairly wet soil, there is probably no bone marrow left to test anyway. Rabies was conjectured based on a flawed case study of Poe's final days and symptoms. It is an unsupported theory.
