BeschreibungEdgar Allan Poe served as a soldier and began his literary career composing verses modelled on Byron. This biography of Poe opens with his end, his final days - no one knows what happened between the time when friends saw him off on the steam-boat to Baltimore and his discovery six days later dying in a tavern.
