Edgar Allan Poe ? the king of all things macabre is shown here with a couple of ravens, a skull, and all those pretty geometric shapes and other stuff I like to put in my designs?

He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and American literature as a whole, and he was one of the country?s earliest practitioners of the short story. Poe is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre and is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction.

Poe?s best-known fiction works are Gothic, a genre that he followed to appease the public taste. His most recurring themes deal with questions of death, including its physical signs, the effects of decomposition, concerns of premature burial, the reanimation of the dead, and mourning. Many of his works are generally considered part of the dark romanticism genre, a literary reaction to transcendentalism which Poe strongly disliked.

Beyond horror, Poe also wrote satires, humour tales, and hoaxes. For comic effect, he used irony and ludicrous extravagance, often in an attempt to liberate the reader from cultural conformity.

He is certainly one of the best-known writers, a true gothic icon that has had a big impact on today?s culture.
