Edgar Allan Poe was born today in 1809. He died at forty, but left his mark on both poetry and short story writing in the USA. He had some bad habits, which only worsened his mental turmoil as he aged. His work became influential not only in this country, but in Europe too.
Rhinos cannot read to any extent, but We can appreciate and imagine in Grand Terms. Obviously, Mr. Poe was a complex fellow, embodying the tormented artist. His work is melancholy, a sensibility of the Romantic Movement.
Rhinos are not often poets, but then neither are most of our Readers.
