Anyone have any ideas for term paper writing on Poe? It needs to be a specific topic like 'How Poe's life influenced his writings' If yu can't think of any Poe ones, I'm open for sugestions about any American Author or Poet. THANKS SOO MUCH :)

hmmm... try all the stuff written in a specific year and connect the elements from it and see what was going on in that time of his life. For example, the year 1841 was the year that he put out The Masque of the Red Death, The Black Cat, The Pit and the Pendulum, and Murder at Rue Morgue. It was also the year that his wife Virginia had her first tubercular attack. As usual, he drank himself into a stupor (which didn't take much) on a binge. Yeah... I hope that helped... ;)
