Through many of Poe’s works, from his short stories, “The Cask to Amontillado”, “The Fall of the House of Usher”, and “The Tell-Tale Heart”, to his poems, “Annabel Lee” and “The Raven”, Poe has established himself as a prolific writer of the genre of Gothic horror in American literature. At the early age of three, Poe was orphaned and sent to a foster family. As he grew older, he had many disputes with his adoptive father, and was disowned. He served in the army before marrying his wife, who would later die at the age of 24, leaving Poe in despair and inspiring many of his works. The reason to how Poe creates a chilling style that is prevalent in many of his works is his repeated use of both repetition and irony.
He was born two months premature under the light of Halley’s Comet, a sign of good things to come and was sickly for the first ten years of his life. Soon after his birth, his father decided to move to the river town of Hannibal, Missouri where Mark Twain spent much of his childhood. While living in Hannibal, Twain became infatuated with the riverboats that came through and the men who piloted them. Though this town was small and bleak and he suffered many hardships here, he always remembered it with fondness in his writings; “Perhaps it was the romantic visionary in him that caused Clemens to recall his youth in Hannibal with such fondness”(Mark Twain).

Later on in life, Poe had served in the military and at that point he started writing poems. After Poe was honorably discharged from the military, he married his 12 year old cousin who died shortly of tuberculosis. These events heavily contributed to his writing style by giving events to base stories as well as a viewpoint on the world. Overall, Edgar Allan Poe’s twisted and ominous writing style focuses on using physical imagery and connotative syntax to show imagery. Through Poe’s short stories and poems, Edgar Allan Poe visual and metaphorical imagery to illustrate the theme of revenge and death.
