NoteStreams By Amber Paranick
Edgar Allen Poe, born January 19 1809, was an American writer, poet, and critic during the romantic era and is perhaps best known for his stories of mystery and horror. He published many short stories during his career and is said to have invented the genre of detective fiction. One of his most famous works, the poem “The Raven,” was first published 170 years ago in January 1845 of which the beginnings are almost as enigmatic as the man.
