About Edgar Allan Poe
George Bernard Shaw called him, 'the finest of finest of artists'; but Edgar Allan Poe (1809-49) died alone in pain and poverty when he was only forty. Almost his last words were: 'I wish to God someone would blow my damned brains out.' - it is not difficult to see why some of his best-remembered stories are grotesque and macabre.
