What happened to him?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Ok, I was wondering if any body as any idea of exactly how he died. All I have heard was that they found his body in a ditch and the clothes he had on were a little small, and inside out. I really want to find this information out, because I like his writings. So even if you have a idea, let me know. Thank You.

In contribution on Poe's mysterious death, here is a wonderful book that will help clear things up. At least it did for me.

Walsh, John Evangelist. Midnight dreary: the mysterious death of Edgar Allan Poe. New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press, 1998.

(note - title of book should be underlined, however, not able to do so.)
