Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe is considered one of the most important writers in all of American literature. Aside from being a poet (“The Raven”), he is credited with having invented the modern short story and is recognized as the master of horror and suspense writing. He was born in 1809 in Boston and died in 1849 in Baltimore. Currently, he works in a cubicle in the writing department of the Next World. There, his rebellious work habits make his prospects for promotion very slim.
