    I love Poe. This could actually have happened, given his continual state of hammered-ness and his bizarre life!

      It’s a myth about Poe that I first heard way back when I was a teenager and a teacher found me reading The Tell-Tale Heart.
      Speaking of that if you want a REAL Poe tale check out this incredibly creepy version of that story read by James Mason.

    You show your tell-tale heart and mind in these posts, Chris. We are less poor because of that.

      That was me. In retrospect I should have given Poe more of a southern accent. He was born in Boston but spent most of his life below the Mason Dixon line.

    I didn’t realize that Edgar Allen Poe looked so strikingly similar to Charlie Chaplin. And you. And maybe Hitler a little bit with that mustache. History is fascinating.

      Poe was amazingly influential. Jerry Lewis even copied his haircut.
