neither he died of murkury poisaning from treating callora

-- Anonymous, January 16, 2004 for facts and writings. Poe obviously suffered from the effects of alcoholism. Whether it was rabies drink or illness no one is in possession of absolute proof. It is only mysterious due to the days he was missing before his death and no exact evidence of what had happened to him when found deliriously ill in a tavern, dressed in different clothes. Plenty of theories though.

there are many theroies of how poe died, i would seriously believe that he died of an OD of opium or drinking himself to death. Well ernest hemminway killed himself, and if i were him i would have too. he suffered from many things one being impotency and thats enough to kill yourself.
