The Writers Mythos

Sep 30, 2020

The Writers Mythos 002 - Edgar Allan Poe

Todays dive into the Mythos looks at the man who pioneered the detective genre, was at the heart of Romanticism and one of the earliest practitioners of the short story. A man who had spent his life in the shadow of morbidity, writing about his personal experiences with death. Though we still look to him for guidance on the macabre and honour his contributions to the writing profession, still captivating people across the world from beyond the grave, we are often quick to forget the darkness within the man. A darkness that, while vital to his work, would ultimately be Edgar Allan Poe's undoing.
