Was the un divine Edgar ahead of his time?

Herpes had not been discovered in the US until the 1970's. But I heard he had herpes in the diarriare and crabs in the nose hair! He may have comtemplated lopping off his ear to get rid of that pussing sensation. I believe the ever queer Van Gogh was only mimmicking him in this regard.

The level of postings such as the above are testimony to the debased and degraded condition of most humans. There is no point in having a Poe forum if such decadence is allowed.

You are highly misinformed. Not only is this information baseless, but one can see how immature you are for putting such crap into writing and actually having the nerve to send it in. A forum such as this is made for intelligent discussions and ideas, not for an ignorant person such as yourself defacing one of the greatest writers of all time. I belive you should be content with this response for it seems you only put this question in here to entice any Poe fan into answering you with ill-temper and disgust.
