He's a great writer...I'm reading his book at spare time.

Impia tortorum longas hic turba furores Sanguinis innocui,non satiata, aluit. Sospite nunc patria, fracto nunc funeris antro, Mors ubi dira fuit, vita salusque patent.

I took it from the begining of one his short story. I like that story...Do you know which story I am talking about?..

BTW, I am reading his book in russian. What language do you read in?

It was a long time ago I read it(in Estonian of course). I wouldn't read, if I did not like.

I've read some of his work. I liked his stories more than his poems.

He has a quite an interesting biography either. I can advise you the following book if anybody wants to read his biography:
Hervey Allen Israfel "The Life and Times of Edgar Allan Рое" (Rinehart and Company, inc. New York Toronto, 1949)

I love Edgar Allan Poe's books they are awesome, his style is very dark and gothic, and you can understand why his books are that way if you read his biography; I recomend you to read it because it's very interesting.
