Whew I am glad to be done with this one I picked it up while at the library intending to enjoy it as a tribute to Poe s recent birthday Nothing against Mr Ackroyd s writing that was his usual uality but the material is hard to absorb I do not remember when I felt agitated while reading a book than I did throughout this one I knew that Poe had led an unhappy life but this was depressing on a level that I wasn t uite prepared for It is no secret how much I love Poe s writing but I will read his material now with an even greater sense of melancholy I do believe in an afterlife and I dearly hope that he has found some peace thereuotes to rememberI do belive God gave me a spark of genius but He uenched it in miseryPoe didn t like trifling and small talk He didn t like dark skinned peopleHe had a uick passionate temper and was very jealous His feelings were intense and he had but little control of them He was not well balanced he had too much brain He scoffed everything sacred and never went to churchHe said often that there was a mystery hanging over him he never could fathom Mary Devereaux This just about sums him up as concisely as one could sum up such a complex characterMy whole nature utterly revolts at the ideas that there is any Being in the Universe superior to myself

Poe A Life Cut Short Download Ò 0 Peter Ackroyd Ó 0 review review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ó Peter Ackroyd Final days no one knows what happened between the time when friends saw him off on the steam boat to Balti and his discovery six days later dying in a tavern This mystery sets the scene for a short life packed with drama and tragedy drink and poverty combined with extraordinary brilliancePoe has been claimed as the forerunner of modern fantasy and credited with the invention of psychological dramas long before Freud science fiction before HG Wells and Jules Verne and the detective story b. Dostoyevsky admired him So did Baudaleare Kafka James Joyce and many others Poe s work is so timeless so up to date that we usually tend to forget that he s actually lived during 1800s where slavery was legal and allright as well as marrying minors that the streets of New York was occupied by the pigs and horses and stuff Reading this book made me realize again and again that Poe is a true legend And it also made me wanna travel back in time and hug this alcoholic always in dept young Poe having daddy issues and suffering from friendlessness his entire life And then it comes to my mind if I did that and heal his pain would there be any Poe left I guess we all know the answer His last words were God help my poor soul He was only 40 Lastly I recommend everyone to read this book along with Poe s own stories It ll be interesting I guarantee
