What was Edgar Allen Poe's cause was it to write books, or tell stories, or what?

I think that his cause was mainly to entertain. For he wrote most of his stories in college and read them aloud to his friends during the night. It was their form of entertainment.

He just liked to write, he enjoyed it. Simple as that.
