Ever since I heard the tales of adventures aboard a whaler that Augustus, the son of Mr. Barnard, the frigate captain, told me, I began to experience the most intense desire to embark. I had a sailboat called Ariel, and we used to do crazy things Such that today, when I think of them, I am by miracle to be among the living.

Categories: ,

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

Orphan of father and mother, Poe went through an irregular education, from the United States to Scotland and England, until his brief passage through the University of Virginia and by the army, although the drive for the young author’s literature led him to dedicate himself to writing.

Poe began to work for various newspapers and magazines with which he was barely earning his living. He traveled through several cities of California along with his wife, Virginia Clemm, who was also his cousin, who was only 13 years old. His death in 1847, barely at age 24, would mean the psychological collapse of Poe, which resulted in some of his best and darkest works while giving up alcohol and drugs.

Prior to the death of his wife, Poe had already been unable to keep a fixed job in the newspapers with which he collaborated because of his alcoholism, which he tried to control. In 1845 he published what would be his most celebrated poem, The Raven.

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

In addition, Poe created the first modern detective of the literature, Auguste Dupin, personage that influenced unequivocally to authors like Arthur Conan Doyle or Agatha Christie.
