Questions for an Independent Project : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread


I am a fifth grade student in an enrichment class. I am doing an independent study project on Edgar Allen Poe because I am interested in his writing and I saw his grave in Baltimore. I have two questions.

1. Was he popular when he was alive or after he died? 2. what is the most interesting fact that you know about him?

Thank you.

Hi im Tyler im a Fressman i am doing a paper on Edgar Allen Poe. To answer your first question i think he was more popular when he died. The reason being is that many people cant really dicide about how he died. Many belive he died of alcohol posing while others belive it was rabies. My most intresting fact about him is that he had a brain tomer that probely caused pretty bad head aces so he drunk alot to keep the pain down. I hope my info was a help.
