Your stupidity makes me laugh. And cry at the same time. Go stick your "fo'shizzle" up your arse. And calling Poe retarded when you're the one who can't even write english, is just naive. I'm sorry, that might be too big of a word for you. Go look it up in a dictonary... Wait, you do know what a dictonary is, right?

It saddens me how ignorant you all are. As far as the original post, you are clearly very immature, not to mention illiterate. For the rest of you, even those of you who probably thought that you were "smart" and defending Poe as a writer, you have a lot to learn. I'm put at great unrest with comments such as calling him "a freak or a sick man." If you truly view him as a "freak or a sick man" then you obviously don't know very much about the life he endured, and surely can't appreciate the great literary aspects of his works. Poe was by far one of the greatest romantic writers; he incorporated nature, feeling, sound, especially music, and most of all the impacts of his hardships on his manifestation. To anyone who cannot truly appreciate Poe and his work for what it really is instead of just a product of a "sick but cool man," I suggest you look more into the life and work of this amazing writer.

Poe was not crazy! he just had very many troubles like: everyone that he even loved died when he got to close with them. he was a drunk, gambler, his foster fother hated him, and he married his cousin so she would not have to be with someone who would treat her wrong.

I'd say your momma would be ashamed of you if she read your posting on a site clearly for the memory of this writer, cant you see his talents farly exced your own talents in writing? How dare you compare R. Kelly some singer who raps about bringing some girl to a hotel party and hollering at him, to someone who can portray the english language MUCH better and in a way that others can benefit from not stare into the computer screen and realize its idiots like you who make the world as ignorant and hopelessly mundane as it is. its no wonder some are uneducated and couldnt give a damn about good literature with people like you talking down on it becuase you cant understand it or see past the dark writings to see the beauty of his work, its a damned shame id say but why feel bad for you? your the one whos missing out my dear ami i do hope you enjoy reading your post in years to come and see how right you were about being retarded. GROW UP LEARN READ A BOOK and then maybe then, comment on a writer.

How could you say something like that about Edgar? He was a better writer than you could ever be the way you write and by the way, his mother can't be ashamed of him because she died before he was three years old.And what the hell is "fo' sizzle"? or whatever it is you said.
