Resume de “Poe: A Life Cut Short”

Edgar Allen Poe’s life was Gothic, mysterious, theatrical, fatally flawed, original, dark, dazzling, satirical, inventive, and an ideal subject for Peter Ackroyd. This new addition to his canon of biographies, which includes the bestselling “Dickens” and “Blake”, opens with his final days. Claimed as the forerunner of modern fantasy, psychological dramas, science fiction and the detective story, Poe was an amazing writer, but his death was a mystery.
