One hundred and sixty six years ago today, Edgar Allan Poe mysteriously died at the age of 40. Though his life was tumultuous and short he is still celebrated as one of the great American writers. His unnerving prose are often invoked during this month of the dead and his infamous raven has become as notorious as the witches’ black cat. There is a museum dedicated to him in Richmond, Virginia and the Mystery Writers of America give out an award named in his honor every spring. Although his death was over a century and a half ago he still influences literature and culture today. Below are just a few books we have that Poe either wrote or were written about him, and you can find them on this list in the catalog.
