Poe boy

Since we will be led to read Poe closely soon by Jan, I thought I would mention that I have been by Poe's 'hood. I was in Baltimore a couple of years ago and discovered that that is where Poe lived for the majority of his life.

So of course I had to go and see his pad.

My dad was visiting at the time so he drove us to the Poe site. I don't think it's the same building but if it was? I can see why Poe drank. ***CV

That's pretty neat. I have looked it on the web before, but I havenever been there.

I have seen the websites of Poe's childhood home but I think I would have liked to seen it in person too.
It is very interesting I feel that with all the adversity that Poe experienced in his lifetime, plus his addiction to the bottle, that he was able to turn out such incredible works.
