Poe’s Grim and Dreary Style Many writers express how they feel by the way they write, and how they see the world around them. Edgar Allan Poe is no exception to the rule.

Music supposedly soothes the savage mind, but many musicians find or have found inspiration in Edgar Allan Poe’s tormented soul. Through his poems and short stories, a muse has been found that speaks to musicians.
