Poe's mother was an actress and when he was a baby she would leave him backstage while she performed. She would dip the end of a cloth in whiskey to quiet him. He was also a drug addict....not sure about what it was called but I think it was actually opium. This probably explains a little bit about why his writing was so far out and some of it downright creepy.

Didn't Poe's mother seat him in the middle seat of the first row for all her performances? I'm almost positive I read that in a few places.

Well he married his COUSIN who was 13 and he was 27!!! Then after she died he was depressed for a little then went on married and devorcing many other women, and for his last girl Sarah Royster, right before he married her in 1849 he went on a three day drinking binge and died from it, so he never married her.

Poe was a crazy midget-eating flyman who was in love with a pile of #### and liked to lick it every night when he went to bed... he also was you.

OK so get this he died of heavy drinking. ok don't drink and drive. well i don't think they had cars back them, but for now he has taught many people about the wrongs things and right. Also never ever marry a cousin that just nasty unless it's a disant cousin and they are really really hot, maybe then, but what poe did was bad bad. Oh and he attemped suicide. poor man. and what was with all the revnge in his books huh. and who says "god hlp my poor soul" as their last words. really only a depressed man who's really sad. so yea don't become depressed, be happy, and you'll have no worries, but smooth sailing
