Is Edger Allen Poe an influence in today's gothic life-style? : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

Is there someone who can tell me about how Edger Allen Poe and his writings have influenced their life in any way, goths lifestyle especially? Please tell me about what your ideas of him are and what you feel when you read his work and that should be a huge help with this presentation I'm doing. The presentation is due on the 11th of April 2001 so need answers A.S.A.P. Thankyou! :-)

Dear Trisha:

I'm not a goth, but I do enjoy Edgar Allan Poe's stories. They have inspired some of my own poems and stories. I usually feel creeped out and very impressed by the poetry, clarity, and emotion of his writings. One of his rules for the short story was that every word be carefully chosen to fit with the ending and effect the reader's emotions. I try to do that myself when I write.

Dear whoever,

Hey, I love Edger Allen Poe i am a gothic and he inspired me to write my poems and to not take life for granted. He speaks through his stories and poems you have to get into them before you truely know were he was coming from. I know because i use to be suicidal because of the world and life but then i read his biograghy and it told me what life is this if i want to take my own just listen to him and what he says. from, Jacque
