    In hopes that I learn more about his life as he’s one of my favorite authors of all time.

    What has everyone read of his work?

    Must read but also I think I read somewhere that he was paid 9$ for The Raven ... that’s mind blowing because I feel like The Raven was WAY more popular.

    The Tell-Tale Heart is an obvious choice, but for good reason.

    The first time I read it, when he yells out, "Tear up the planks!" I got literal chills.
