As a boy, Poe attended the best schools available, and was admitted to the University of Virginia at Charlottesville in 1825.While there he distinguished himself academically but was forced to leave after less than a year because of bad debts and inadequate financial support from Allan.The former piece, reminiscent of Byron’s “Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage,” recounts the life and adventures of a fourteenth-century Mongol conqueror; the latter poem portrays a dreamworld where neither good nor evil permanently reside and where absolute beauty can be directly discerned.In other poems is a three stanza lyric that has been called one of the most beautiful love poems in the English language.While Poe’s writings gained attention in the late 1830s and early 1840s, the profits from his work remained meager, and he supported himself by editing in New York City.After his wife’s death from tuberculosis in 1847, Poe became involved in a number of romantic affairs.Poe’s poetry and short stories greatly influenced the French Symbolists of the late nineteenth century, who in turn altered the direction of modern literature.It is this philosophical and artistic transaction that accounts for much of Poe’s importance in literary history.

Poe’s theory of literary creation is noted for two central points: first, a work must create a unity of effect on the reader to be considered successful; second, the production of this single effect should not be left to the hazards of accident or inspiration, but should to the minutest detail of style and subject be the result of rational deliberation on the part of the author.
In poetry, this single effect must arouse the reader’s sense of beauty, an ideal that Poe closely associated with sadness, strangeness, and loss; in prose, the effect should be one revelatory of some truth, as in “tales of ratiocination” or works evoking “terror, or passion, or horror.” Aside from a common theoretical basis, there is a psychological intensity that is characteristic of Poe’s writings, especially the tales of horror that comprise his best and best-known works.
Poe’s father and mother were professional actors who at the time of his birth were members of a repertory company in Boston.
