Edgar Allan Poe is and will remain my favorite poet of all time. He changed the world with his works. He didn't gain his fame until after his death. It took people in the 1900's and late 1800's to recognize his true genius. Edgar Allan Poe was definitely the best at what he did.Till this day, there is no one who can be compared to Edgar Allan Poe. Some people aspire to write like Edgar Allan Poe, and I'm one of them. We try to grasp his concepts, but cannot. We try to write about horror and love, but we just can't do it. No one can master and grasp his influences of horror, gloom, mystery, love, and death. People love him and his works.
Some of his stories and poems have been made into short skits. One example is The Raven. When I looked him up on Google, he had over 1 billion views! I cannot stress it to you enough how he changed America! He was not only loved by America, he is loved all over the world. Edgar Allan Poe was an amazing poet and story writer and was loved by all. Edgar Allan Poe lived a life of tragedy and misery. So if he was alive today, I think he would be very appalled to see how much he changed the world, and how much he is loved. Also if he was alive today. I think he would certainly see why I consider him to be, "The World's Greatest"!
