Edgar was born on January 19,1809 in Boston ,which makes him Capricorn. He was adopted by Mr. And Mrs. John Allan and Rosalie. When he was ‘bout 6, he went to school in England for 5 years. He went to the University of Virginia in 1826 when he was 17. he went to Boston and joined the U.S. Army in 1827 he was 18.In 1831, he went to N.Y.C. and got some of his poetry published.in 1835, he got a job as an editor of a news paper because he won a contest, with the story ‘The Manuscript Found in a Bottle.
In 1836 Edgar married his cousin, Virginia Clemm. He was 27 and she was 13! In 1837 he went to Philadelphia and wrote Ligeia ,and The Haunted Palace which was his first volume of short stories. On September 30 he jumped on a train to Baltimore. On October 3,poe was found at gunner’s hall, and was taken to the hospital. He then lapsed in and out of consciousness but wasn’t able to explain what happen to him.
Poe was more than likely a victim of a political gang. But some think other wise. Some think cooping was a recognized political trick in Baltimore in 1849. Also that the term could be used without requiring additional explanation. There seems to have been particular concern about voting in Fourth Ward. Precisely where Poe was found on that election day.
I like Tell-Tale Heart
Then it goes on to tell how the crazed man chopped up the old man the night the old man’s eye was wide open. And when the cops came and was questioning him. Also he claimed to hear the old man’s heart pound. Then he was arrested.
