Synopsis

Edgar Allan Poe served as a soldier and began his literary career composing verses modelled on Byron. Peter Ackroyd's biography of Poe opens with his final days. No one knows what happened between the time when friends saw him off on the steam-boat to Baltimore and his discovery six days later dying in a tavern.
