Personal Life Though the first few years of Poe’s life had been unstable and full of devastation, it improved drastically while he lived with the Allans. “John Allen alternately spoiled and aggressively disciplined his foster son (Meyers 9),” which proved to have played a large role as Poe grew into a successful student and an established writer. John Allan’s job allowed him to often take the family overseas, where Poe attended grammar school in Scotland; afterwards, he went back to London with the rest of the family, where he attended a boarding school for approximately a year.

...Poe’s most famous poems, “Annabel Lee” (Poe 477-478), which depicts a dead young bride and her mourning lover, is most likely inspired by Virginia.

...Annabel Lee eventually dies during a cold storm, being taken into heaven. The protagonist mourns for his love, not knowing what to do without her by his side. It is clear that the death of Virginia inspired the poem, personally taking the place of Annabel Lee, again showing exactly the state of mind that Poe was left in after this death. From a young age until his own death, Edgar Allen Poe witnessed many deaths of the people that he loved and even people that he did not, yet he was still deeply impacted by the loss. Death had been all that he had known by the time that he succumbed to it himself in 1849 after going missing for five days and being found in a haze of delirium... Edgar Allen Poe Edgar...

Poe had been left an orphan at a very young age and grew up in the house of adoptive parents, the Allens, who did not understand his more passionate temperament. After struggling to find his niche, Poe’s first book of poems was published when he was only 19 and he began writing short stories at the age of 23 (Conklin, 1989). In perfecting this form, Poe said “If any literary work is too long to be read at one sitting, we must be content to dispense with the immensely important effect derivable from unity of impression” (Mowery, 1997).
