Today is #edgarallanpoe 's 211th birthday. 🎂 Born on this day in 1809 in Boston, Massachusetts.. Poe would live on to give us some of the most meaningful and influential pieces of art (in my humble opinion) in American history.
He is not just a #horroricon - but a legend among authors and poets. An influencer of MANY different types of writings, movies, and books.. I can only hope that his work and life continue to be remembered and cherished with the new generations. 🖤
One of my personal favorites, a kindred melancholy soul.. his stories not only helped grow my love for horror and all things macabre but they helped me learn how to convey my sadness into something creative. "Never to suffer would never to have been blessed." #happybirthday and long live the memory and tales of Edgar Allan Poe. ♡
