POE, EDGAR ALLAN

about author

"Poe, Edgar Allan (19 Jan. 1809-7 Oct. 1849), fiction writer, poet, and critic, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the second son of David Poe, Jr., and Elizabeth Arnold, actors. During an engagement in New York, David Poe deserted his family. Within two years, Eliza gave birth to a daughter--by another man, it was rumored--and fell seriously ill, perhaps from an infectious fever. Likely with her children present, she died in Richmond, Virginia, on 8 December 1811, at the age of twenty-four.

Then barely three years old, the orphaned Poe was separated from his siblings and became the ward of a childless Richmond couple, the Allans. Materially his situation was comfortable. Profits from the merchandising firm known as ""The House of Ellis and Allan"" enabled John Allan to buy up real estate, supply his sideboard with venison, and maintain three slaves. Emotionally Allan provided less richly. Narrowly trained in commercial affairs, he resented others who had been raised more liberally and preached a demanding code of manly independence."
