Poet, short writer, editor, lecturer, and critic, Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849) was orphaned at the age of two and taken in by a wealthy merchant who became his godfather. His formal education began in England and continued when the family returned to Richmond, Virginia. At age 11, the child prodigy was writing verse.
In 1832, he began writing short stories which were to be his principal source of income, and in 1833 won some national recognition. He later very successfully edited a series of American literary magazines. During this time he produced some of his masterpiece short stories, including the style-setting detective story, The Murders in the Rue Morgue. In 1845, he published The Raven, which achieved for him permanent worldwide fame.
