Edgar Allan Poe: The Fever Called Living

Author:  Paul Collins

Publisher:  New Harvest

First Publication:  August 20, 2014

As it is approaching the fall time of the year, I thought it would be interesting to read about the life of Edgar Allan Poe.  Unfortunately “The Fear of Living” missed the mark for me.  It was interesting to read about some of the incidents of Poe’s life.  I was looking for more poetic writing but thought this book was a little “dry”.  I have no reason to question the facts presented here but will look for another book that does a better job of  drawing you into the life of Edgar Allan Poe.
