I think Edgar Allan Poe's writting is very hard to understand and is very disturbing. I think he is the worst poet in the world!!!!!!!!!!!, I THINK EDGAR ALLEN POE SHOULD HAVE BEEN LOCKED UP IN THE PLACE WITH THE PADED WALLS. If anyone agrees go dig his grave up and burn his bones and i think he was stupid to marry his 13 year old cousin when he was 27.

Edger Allen Poe is a very misunderstood person...they say that many of his writings weren't pulished because the man that he left them to when he died, didn't like him, so he decided which stories and poems he would release...he wanted people to think he was crazy. Poe had a wonderful imagination and was able to write it out on paper, which a lot of people can't do. Now a days the only imagination people have is about sexually things. You also have to remember his time, we live in a different generation, where things aren't done the same way they used to be...back in his time you would never see a naked girl on T.V. They didn't even have T.V. Please think before you write!

I think that we all get the drift. There's no need for foul language. Lets all act our age or at least pretend to be educated people. We all know that he was a little off in the head, but lets face it all great writers were (and make no mistake he was great that's why all of us have learned about him) and for those that think he was sick for marrying his own cousin; in that time many people did it was to keep the blood line pure. If those of you think it was sick just because she was 13, then I hate to know what you think of Jerry Lee Louis he married his 2nd cousin Myra at age 14, and all of you have to remember that the ages between 13 and 17 were considered to be the best years for a woman to marry because 1) they had a shorter life span and 2) those were the best child-bearing years and as all of you know that is all women were used for back then. After saying all of this lets try to be civil with one another.

i think you all have some serious problems.excpecialy if you find Edgars writings difficult to understand.He illistrates his points verry well ,uses a wide yet clear and easy to understand vocabulary , and was a compleet genius! He practicaly invented the detective story ! He was the greatest writer there ever was. Yes,i admit he did have a few issues with keeping a job and drinking ,but he was still(nd still is) awsome.And for your information marrying within the family was compleetly socialy acceptable in thoes days and, it was expected of a young lady to get married young (even if virginia was still considered to young at the time).Also he never consumated with his cousin/wife virgiania was a virgin and poe wasnt into beastiality fyi he was quite the ladies man and was said to of had beein engaed at least 3 times and have sexual "flings" with many younger (and older)females.And ,if you dont like Edgar A. Poe then dont come on here!duh!its commonsense.

Poe is one of the great contributors to modern day liturature anyone unable to appreciate that should go watch "The Bachelor" or "who wants to be an American Dunce". For an individual to understand and relate to his writings they must possess an imagination. If you resort to vulgarity about something you don't understand, it truly shows your ingnorance. ad something positive and inciteful to the conversation.

stay in school

ps forgive sp or gram errors

umm, does anyone even remember the question? I would hope you have something better to do with your life than find a website and cuss up a storm. I mean really, what did Poe ever do to you.
