Poet Edgar Allan Poe

Born in 1809, Edgar Allan Poe was an American poet, fiction writer and literary critic. He is remembered for his macabre and inventive short stories and poems, and as the inventor of the modern detective story. Poe died in on October 7, 1849 from unknown causes, though it’s speculated that he perished as a result of rabies.

On this Halloween edition of The Poets Weave, we read Poe’s poem entitled “Ulalume,” first published in 1847.
