Edgar Allan Poe at 40

The most amazing fact in the history of American literature is a striking, all-encompassing devotion that can be called “Poe Cult”. The cult of a “black romance” singer, a brilliant symbolist, a pioneer of the literary genre of the mystical detective who is an American poet, writer, critic Edgar Allan Poe began to grow in irresistible proportions after the poet's death.

Edgar Allan Poe, born on January 19, 1809, died on October 7, 1849, at the age of 40 years. During his own lifetime, the contemporaries were rather unjust to his genius. What is more interesting is the furious pace with which society embraced the passion and even, in some sense morbid interest in the literature of Poe. Curiosity was piqued by the fact that during his life the poet acquired ill repute in the society, and the death of Edgar happened with equally dark and mysterious circumstances, the sentiments of which fill his poems and stories.

Edgar had lived in Baltimore for a few years, but in those tragic days that preceded his death, he came to the city with a drive-by visit. The journey ended tragically. They say when taken to the hospital Poe was dressed in a passed on by someone suit looking dirty and beaten. Some people claim that Poe died from alcoholism; others tend to believe that the cause of his death is associated with mental insanity. There are the authors who are sure that someone doped him with a lethal dose of drugs. To tell the truth, any of the versions about the mysterious circumstances of the poet’s death is not supported by 100% of the evidence. His mysterious and tragic death caused the rumours about the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe that at times appeared at the “Old Western Burial Ground” cemetery.

The life of Edgar Allan Poe is the song of grief and suffering. His death is the death of the unfortunate man, who had finished his days in a charitable community hospital — unmourned, inglorious, not praised by colleagues. His funeral was very modest. The funeral procession consisted only of eight people who buried the one whose name was immortal. During the humiliating funeral ceremony on 8 October 1849, no one could imagine that it would take only 25 years old and the world will know its hero. People needed a quarter of a century to recognise Edgar Allan Poe as one of the unique writers of the world literature.

The most amazing fact in the history of American literature is a striking, all-encompassing devotion that can be called “Poe Cult”. The cult of a “black romance” singer, a brilliant symbolist, a pioneer of the literary genre of the mystical detective who is an American poet, writer, critic Edgar Allan Poe began to grow in irresistible proportions after the poet's death.
