Was he beaten

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I have been told that Edgar Allen Poe was beaten as a child. Can anyone verify this for me? additionally, Can anyone tell me how he died and how he was buried? There are a lot of loose ends to the subject and since i have a report paper worth 600 points due in 2 weeks I'd like to clear up my questions. Thanks

No, he was not beaten. And no one knows for sure how he died. There is some reasearch that shows that he may of died of rabies. Look it up, thats all I can tell you.

No he was not beaten nor spanked by anyone including John Allan. He was considered a treasure to John Allan's family.
