Product Description:

Poet, father of macabre fiction, and author of such works as "The Raven," "Cask of Amantillado," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and "Tell-Tale Heart," Edgar Allen Poe's troubled life and his debilitating addiction to opium are examined in this biographical study.

Plot Synopsis:

"Famous Authors" examines the men and women behind the words that brought them literary kudos.
In "Edgar Allan Poe," viewers learn how the poet and short story writer from an impoverished background ultimately became the toast of American literature. He excelled with horrific narratives such as "The Tell-Tale Heart," which were often narrated by untrustworthy characters. With "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," he even created a new style of fiction: the detective story.
If Poe in his professional life exhibited a willingness to depict the darker side of humanity, his private life, too, was troubled. He invited criticism when he married his 13-year-old cousin, and he suffered from alcoholism.
