Portal:Scheme Edgar Allan Poe (January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) was an American poet, short story writer, editor and critic and one of the leaders of the American Romantics. He is best known for his tales of the macabre and his poems, as well as being one of the early practitioners of the short story and a progenitor of detective fiction, as well as crime fiction in the United States. Poe died at the age of 40, the cause of his death a final mystery. His exact burial location is also a source of controversy.

Notable poems include:

... did you know Dulce et Decorum est was orginally written as a personal letter to Jessie Pope known for her pro-war poems widely published during World War I
