    Edgar Allan Poe is one of those writers that I will never forget reading about while I was in school. "The Raven" was one of the few pieces that I recall enjoying while I was in literature class because it was so dark yet exquisitely written. However, one thing I didn't know much about was his death and the mystery surrounding it. I recently came across a really interesting piece discussing his death and some of the theories that surround it. Mr. Poe was only 40 years old and died seemingly out of no where.
