Writer, journalist and American literary critic, Edgar Allan Poe is known for his narrative of romantic horror and his mastery of the tale of Gothic influence, being considered one of the great masters of universal literature and father of the detective genre.

Orphaned by father and mother, Poe went through an irregular education, from the United States to Scotland and England, until his brief stint at the University of Virginia and the army, although the drive by the literature of the young author led him to devote himself to writing.

Poe began to work for various newspapers and magazines with which he earned a hard life. He traveled through several cities in California with his wife, Virginia Clemm, who was also his cousin, who was only 13 years old. His death in 1847, just turned 24, would mean the psychological collapse of Poe, which resulted in some of his best and darkest works while abandoning alcohol and drugs.

Prior to the death of his wife, Poe had already been unable to maintain a permanent job in the newspapers with which he collaborated due to his alcoholism, which he tried to control. In 1845 he published what would be his most celebrated poem, El cuervo.

Poe practiced several genres throughout his literary career, dealing in an almost obsessive manner such as death, burial in life or mourning. In this sense are well-known stories such as The well and the pendulum, The mask of red death, The tell-tale heart or Berenice, among many others.

In addition, Poe created the first modern detective of literature, Auguste Dupin, a character that unmistakably influenced authors such as Arthur Conan Doyle or Agatha Christie.
