Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston, Massachusetts on January 19, 1809. He was a prolific writer, publishing short stories, poems, essays, and one novel during his short life. His writing, mostly in the Gothic genre, greatly influenced horror fiction as well as the modern short story. Most notably, Poe is credited with writing one of the first published pieces of detective fiction, with his tale “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”.
His best-known short stories, “The Fall of the House of Usher”, “The Tell-Tale Heart”, “The Cask of Amontillado”, and “The Pit and the Pendulum”, became classic psychological thrillers, while his most famous poems, “The Raven” and “Annabel Lee” are considered to be some of the finest literature of the Gothic genre. Although his life was short, his literary influence in the United States and Europe earned him a spot as one of the most influential writers of the nineteenth century.
Each Pen is packaged in a special Commemorative navy blue box featuring Edgar Allan Poe’s Signature. Limited to 100 pieces of each mode.
