Eed to write up and save my reasons for why I on t like lengthy standard sized picture books for middlehigh school students because I get really tired of typing it out again and again Long story short Older kids Dark Ties (Broken Saints Society don t want to read picture books because they are improperly viewed as baby books when most of the time they are written for an older student s readinginterest level meaning the younger kids that pick them up with NEVER finish reading it and those who would finish them will never pick up the book in the first place Ok that rant aside this was a great overview of Poe s tragic life for those who are already a little familiar with his story or for those just starting out and will continue to seek out additional information Very nice biography of Poe with lots of illustrations hitting all the key points of his life I particularly liked the observation made by the author as to theifference betw The 61 pages Edgar Allen Poe biography by Karen E Lange was Um Fogo Eterno despite being a bit boring at time a uick read Edgar Allen Poe who was born in Boston on January 19 1809 to Elizabeth Arnold Poe and David Poe Jr who were both actors He was an orphan at a young age shortly after his motheried of tuberculoses his father abandoned the family never to be seen again John and Francis Allan took him in hence the name Edgar Allan Poe However they never formally adopted him Lawn Boy Returns despite educating him He attended university at the university of Virginia though could only stay there for one semesterue to lack of money He enlisted in the army and Yolandas Genius despite uickly ranking failed miserably So heecided to write and there began his career His first book was a collection of poems called Tamerlane and Other Poems He then switched careers and started working for literary journals where he was known for his own style of literary criticism He married his 13 year old cousin in Balti 1835 and exactly 10 years later he published him poem The Raven for instant success Thought his wife Virginia The Fairytale Hairdresser and Sleeping Beauty died of tuberculoses 2 years after it was published He began planning to produce his own journal called The Penn which he eventually renames The Stylus However he ended upying before it could be produced And to this The Light Beyond the Forest day no one knows how heied He had a very troubled life he watched as tow very important people in his life The First Mistake died in front of him because of tuberculoses and he hadrinking problems which is said to be one of the reason he Jewelry Making For Beginners died I thought the book was boring at times though a very uick and interesting read However Ion t think that the book suited me so muc. ??s vivid illustrations of Poe’s various haunts to create an atmospheric account of America’s most famous Romantic writer The story shifts from his birth in Boston to Richmond from Hampton Roads to Philadelphia from New York City to his mysterious eath in Balti Never is a rich appreciation of an American master whose macabre tales of mystery took shape in tandem with his own strange and ultimately tragic life story.

A short biography of the American poet with many photos of people and artifacts to supplement the story I gave this two stars not because of the writing but just because I id not enjoy it Edgar Allan Poe The Penguin Book of English Verse did not have a happy life and this book made that very clear Io like the photobiographies National Geographic has put out The combination of biography with primary sources captures the eye and is a great asset to historical resources for late elementary and secondary students I think this would be a good resource for middle and high school students Seven Secrets of Happiness doing research on Edgar Allan Poe or for studentsoing research on the etrimental effects of alcoholism I ve never known too much about Poe except that he was from Balti although apparently not I ve read several of his short stories and poems but this is the first time I ve read into his life This book was very informative and easy to read without umbing the content own The images and snipets of his writing and his letters help to illuminate his troubled lifeTo be honest it makes me sad If Poe were living today he would have had help for the things that ailed him including what is clearly something akin to bi polar isorder and he might have had a much prolific career or at least a longer lifeI The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters (Chapter 9 Provocateur) d recommend this book for anyone who has a casual interest in the life and times of Edgar Allan Poe or as a companion to compilations of his work Grades 5 12Mock Sibert Award Nominee 2010This biography of the tragic genius isetailed well researched and attractive Poe s story is told in an engaging style that mixes well written interesting prose with photographs paintings and other images Black and white photographs are set off by blue cast images and backgrounds The narration is intermingled with uotes bits of Poe s poetry or prose varied font and two page photo spreads Even the captions are How I Became a Nun deliciously constructed The success of this biography will beue to the content and the The Rose Tattoo and Other Plays design It fills a void because it is accessible to young readers who first fall in love with Poe yet it is rich enough to be enjoyed by older readers as well This is a beautifullyone nonfiction piece about Edgar Allan Poe in which readers learn about both his genius in chronological order but also about his incessant need for love from women It focuses on each relationship and his letters courting one woman as he s proposing marriage to another It even includes some guesses as to his behavior at having never gotten over the The Undoing Project death of his mother as a toddler and not having known her idealized all women loo.
