Edgar Allan Poe was an alcoholic...he had a very bad drinking problem...some of his works such as "The Black Cat" and "The Tell Tale Heart" refelct his alcohol problem due to the use of his somewhat psychotic characters...in general poe lived a hard life...both parents died when poe was 3...ev

Well actually I am a member of the "Poe" clan. He wrote based on what his life meant. If you read his poetry you will find that he lived a quite nice life for the most of it. It was not until the very end that his life became a mess. his life affected his writing because his life was his writing. What a tortured soul. I'd hate to be him at the end!!!
