Sooner or later, Poe (1809-1849) would have made his way to Mix Tape. It was inevitable since so many people love him. Teens are drawn and love his haunting words and the rhyme scheme of his poems, which make his them fun to read.
In 1836, he married his 13 year old cousin, Virginia Clemm. She was his true love. Unfortunately, Virginia died in 1847, a few days after Poe's birthday. He was drastically affected by her death and resorted to alcoholism. Virginia's death influenced many of Poe's poems. His own death arrived two years later, and the exact cause of his death is unknown but has inspired myths and legends.
Today, Poe is a lauded poet and considered important to American literature.
