his family was his insperation all his work came from the abuss his family gave him. i mean he was sent to another family and they did not approve of him and his real parents were actors and the people in his time did not approve of actors at the time. that is how his righting is so deep and full of feeling. take "annabelle lee" a poem he wrote it is about a girl he is deeply in love with and the angles got jealous of their love and killed her and though she was died their love was not broken.
