Cause of Death (COD)

There are many different theories for Edgar Allan Poe’s death. Some of them include:

  • Alcoholism Theory- Poe drank heavily and may have been an alcoholic.

  • Cooping Theory- Cooping is when you are forced to vote for the same person multiple times during elections. They would offer you alcohol and then beat you up so you wouldn’t remember anything. Since Poe didn’t have a strong liver for drinking, filling him with alcohol and beating him would definitely kill him.

  • Rabies Theory- Poe may have contracted rabies during his times at home.
