The Poetic Principle: “I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of beauty.”
Edgar Allan Poe (born Edgar Poe) was born in Boston Massachusetts on January 19th 1809 and was orphaned at an early age. Taken in by the Allan family his education was cut short by lack of money and he went to the military academy, West Point where he failed to become an officer. His early literary works were poetic but he quickly turned to prose. He worked for several magazines and journals until in January 1845 The Raven was published and became an instant classic. Thereafter followed the works for which he is now so rightly famed as a master of the mysterious and macabre. In this volume we bring you his essay on poetry, less well known than his stories, but fascinating none the less and, as an addition, helps to round out Edgar Allan Poe the Artist as well as a remarkable insight to his thoughts. Poe died at the early age of 40 in 1849 in Baltimore, Maryland
