How did Poe's life and views reflect his works? How has his style affected the message and his readers? How did he influence his society?

actually they do know how. He died of rabies. He wouldnt accept water or food while he was in the hospital, and showed a few other symptoms. you see, every once in a while in medical school, teachers will give the students a list of symptoms associated with a particular disorder and ask them to identify the cause. What the students dont know is sometimes the symptoms are from an unknown cause of death, someone famous, or in this case both. just FYI
