Edgar Allan Poe facts

  • Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre
  • He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and American literature as a whole, and he was one of the country's earliest practitioners of the short story
  • Poe is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre and is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction
  • He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career
  • Poe was born in Boston, the second child of two actors
  • His father abandoned the family in 1810, and his mother died the following year
  • Thus orphaned, the child was taken in by John and Frances Allan of Richmond, Virginia
  • They never formally adopted him, but Poe was with them well into young adulthood
  • Tension developed later as John Allan and Edgar repeatedly clashed over debts, including those incurred by gambling, and the cost of secondary education for the young man
  • Poe attended the University of Virginia for one semester but left due to lack of money
