FOR THOSE WHO LIVE DANGEROUSLY
hmm i heard that there was someone who always visited Edgar Allen Poe's grave but i wonder why he didn't show. who is this visitor anyway??
Aw sucks if he died, he was so devoted :(
Edgar Allen Poe. I think the most he ever made from a story was for "The Gold Bug," and that was only because he'd sold the story, then bought it back from his publisher and entered it into a short story contest.I once read Julian Symons' biography of Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart. I still don't know what Symons was trying to say -- it's a very oblique and opaque work. Do any Irregulars have a favorite Poe biography?Robert in San Diego
I nearly forgot -- back in seventh grade our English teacher had us do a group reading of "The Bells" -- one of Poe's poems.Here's an on line version -- and it's a special treat for people who miss the black background and white type Kirsten used to have on her blogs.Robert in San Diego
OK -- I have been to Baltimore. I've seen Poe's grave. What I DIDN'T know was the original headstone was crushed by a runaway locomotive before it was finished.Robert in San Diego
I can't belive that the Poe toaster diden't show! It was so disapointing!!!!!
Poe was a genius. But whoever has been doing this grave-visiting is even more so. Absolutely No one knows who he is?
That's amazing, the grave-visitor!I've never heard of it until now, and it still breaks my heart that the tradition (seems to have) stopped.I probably just read it too fast, but he only visited on Poe's birthday, right?
and me! i have the same day!
i COULD NOT BELIEVE when i heard the poe-toaster didn't show up last year because i had only discovered it a year before and was going to go see it one day when i visit the USA! i'm so depressed. ever since then i'm not so willing to travel to america anymore... :C i only knew about it like 9 months before it stopped happening.
