The True Democracy of Voluntary Exchange

Edgar Allen Poe

Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849)
Poe’s attempt to live off writing alone was not a successful experiment. Although The Raven was celebrated immediately upon its debut in 1845, and established Poe as the literary genius we know today, it did not give him financial security. He died penniless and a meager 10 people attended his funeral.
