202nd Anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's birth



Mental Floss featured  5 Things you Didn't Know About Edgar Allan Poe , which included this delightful little video of Humpty Dumpty in the Style of Edgar Allan Poe.  I treasure my "Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe", and it occupies a prominent spot on my bookshelf.  He was such a wonderful writer, with such a tragic background.  Check it out.

:-) LOVE Poe. Amazing. I think THE RAVEN was one of the first poems I tried to memorize.

Yeah, pretty much my experience too. I was also taken with Annabel Lee and remember writing my own version of that one called "The Death Maid's Dance". The first paper that I ever wrote for school that I poured my heart and soul into was on Poe. The teacher gave me an A+++ (I think she was trying to tell me with all those pluses that she realized all the effort I put into it!)
