Abstract Edgar Allan Poe, America's master of the macabre, is famed for such literary classics as The Tell-Tale Heart and The Raven. But the story of his life was more bizarre than any of the tales he told. This episode of Biography sheds light on a man greatly blessed and supremely cursed: blessed with immortal genius and cursed by a life of lost loves and shattered hopes.
