What were Edgar Allen Poe's goals or achievements as a writer ?

Do you write...I mean just to write?? I would like to think that Poe wrote because he felt it. It wasn't for everyone's amusement or for great stardom. When you write from your heart, be it broken or blossoming, you want people to read it because you don't want to be alone. Sometimes there are perks and what human wouldn't want to enjoy them but basically I wouldn't want anyone to have a tarnished veiw of Poe....He wrote because he felt it
