EDGAR ALLAN POE
"Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence ."Edgar Allan Poe

Actor/scholar Michael Oakes exhumes America’s most haunting author, combining details of his tragic life with passages from his poems and prose. His life story provides powerful lessons about alcoholism, and the heartbreaking struggles of a singular artist. Poe pioneered the detective, thriller, and horror genres. He was America's first professional writer and first literary critic. The mystery surrounding Poe’s death is befitting this dark genius.
