Photographer's Note

I went to visit the Edgar Allen Poe Museum and found this foundation in the center of it all. The origional house was torn down and this small schrine was built in it's place. The bricks used are the only pieces left of his origional house.

Edgar Allan Poe (January 19, 1809 October 7, 1849) was an American poet, short story writer, editor, critic and one of the leaders of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of the macabre, Poe was one of the early American practitioners of the short story and a progenitor of detective fiction and crime fiction. He is also credited with contributing to the emergent science fiction genre. Poe died at the age of 40. The cause of his death is undetermined and has been attributed to alcohol, drugs, cholera, rabies, and other agents.
