Langston Hughes was an African American writer. His early life consisted of his parents getting a divorce. He also was raised by his grandmother, and she died when he was only thirteen. After this, he moved in with his mother and her new husband. This is when he really started writing his poetry and writings.
The poet, Edgar Allan Poe, wrote from influences in his life such as his grief, being an orphan and drugs. Poe, born in Boston, spent 3 years with his family until he was orphaned after his mother’s death and his father’s abandonment. Poe was adopted by the Allan family and later attended the university of virginia for a year before dropping out. Poe was kicked out of the army a year after joining. He later married his cousin, Virginia, who passed away at a young age.

One early experience that shaped and influenced Poe’s writing was the death of both of his parents before he was three years old. Equally important to what impacted Poe, was that his foster dad never legally adopted him, and then died in 1834. His wife, Virginia Eliza Clemm Poe, died of tuberculosis in January 30, 1847(“Edgar Allan Poe” 1). Edgar Allan Poe was forced to leave school and quit going to the US Military Academy, because he did not have sufficient funds to keep going (“Edgar Allan. Poe” 2).
His teachers, Snow Longley Housh and Jeannet Johnson, encouraged his writing, and “taught him how to love poetry… and how to write a short story”(“Ray Bradbury” par 7). Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451, is considered to be very controversial as it discusses

There follows the running theme of Geisel’s belief of the importance and impact of proper education during childhood throughout his life. Although Theodor Seuss Geisel passed away in 1991, his lessons and stories continue to be as popular as ever.

Later he joined poetry classes of Leila Steinberg in 1989. Later in that same year, Steinberg organized a concert.
While in Boston, he spent time in the army and at West Point.
