 Edgar Allan Poe da Alejandro Cabeza
Edgar Allan Poe by Alejandro Cabeza
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
Tis some visitor, I muttered, tapping at my chamber door
Only this, and nothing more.
Edgar Allan Poe, The raven

Poe, the most famous horror writer, died alone. He was found wandering the streets of Baltimore, delirious. After admission to the hospital, Poe appeared incoherent until his death. His last days and the cause of his decease remain a mystery. Someone...

     It was many and many a anno ago,
In a kingdom da the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom te may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to Amore and be loved da me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom da the sea;
But we loved with a Amore that was più than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a Amore that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom da the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful
Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her...

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
Unearthly pride hath revell'd in-
I have no time to dote o dream:
You call it hope- that fuoco of fire!
It is but agony of desire:
If I can hope- Oh God! I can-
Its fount is holier- più divine-
I would not call thee fool, old man,
But such is not a gift of thine.

Know thou the secret of a spirit
Bow'd from its wild pride into shame.
O yearning heart! I did inherit
Thy withering portion with the fame,
The searing glory which hath shone
Amid the jewels of my throne,
Halo of Hell!...

TRUE! --nervous --very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will te say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses --not destroyed --not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily --how calmly I can tell te the whole story.

It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but once conceived, it haunted me giorno and night. Object there was none. Passion there was none. I loved the old man. He had never wronged me....

Fools!-
Perhaps the best in talent-
But fools they always were.
And we,
We who were through with being ever-second-
We devised a plan to rid the stage of them.
Foolproof?
No, but perfect all the same.
Clever and cunning and every bit dramatic.
We could have been starring in our own piece.

It was to be a murder-
A double murder upon the stage-
We were not so cruel as to let them die away from it.
Yes, they would draw their final breaths there,
Watched da a crowd of-
What else?-
Fools.
Fools who would merely think their recitazione superb,
And never comprehend
That the deaths they saw were real.
And even if they did...

In 1949, like about a week before he died, he was supposed to take atrain in Baltimore for going to Philadelphia. That`s what history knows. After that it`s a mystery. Some people (And myself) believe that he went to a bar and he got drunk, with this it is believed that he was taken to vote for some elections and then dropped in the streat. This was a common way of faking the elections in that time. But, still, I can`t really say how he day. All I know is that, five days after he was supposed to take that train, he appeared in the streat and he was taken to the hospital. The doctor was a friend of him. And then October 7th, he died. Miserable, poor and having hallusinations, our loving Edgar died and nobody in his family o Friends (he had a grandmother ) knew it. He died alone. Tragic isn`t it?
Baltimore City is stopping funds for the Edgar Allen Poe House. This will greatly affect tourism. Funding is used to celebrate Poe's works, Birthday and keeps his final resting place(Westminster Church) open to the public. Many people from around the world travel to Baltimore just to visit the grave of Mr. Poe. He is a legend. This will not be fair to his fan o to anyone else who come to admire the wonderful little cemetery and church.

People do not just go to this city for the Inner Harbor o go to a sporting event. They come to see Poe. They want to see the home where he lived his last days and visit his grave. Did Baltimore city forget there is a football team named after one of his famous works?

This decision should be reconsidered if te want to keep tourism booming in Baltimore City.

I WAS sick, sick unto death, with that long agony, and when they at length unbound me, and I was permitted to sit, I felt that my senses were leaving me. The sentence, the dread sentence of death, was the last of distinct accentuation which reached my ears. After that, the sound of the inquisitorial voices seemed merged in one dreamy indeterminate hum. It conveyed to my soul the idea of REVOLUTION, perhaps from its association in fancy with the burr of a mill-wheel. This only for a brief period, for presently I heard no more. Yet, for a while, I saw, but with how terrible an exaggeration !...
