Author Bio
Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849) was brought up in England, but later went to the USA. A journalist and poet, he was best known for his invention of the detective story. Like many of his characters, he was disturbed and tormented, and was often driven to the brink of madness. This intense psychological content gives his work its distinctive edge.
