Fried Honors Edgar Allan Poe’s 214th Birthday

[ Posted: Jan 25, 2023 ]


“Never to suffer would never to have been blessed” " Edgar Allan Poe

Despite his difficult career and short life (only 40 years), Edgar Allan Poe is one of America’s, if not the world’s, most influential writers and poets. A central figure of Romanticism in the US and one of the earliest practitioners of the short story, Poe was and is still a great source of inspiration for prominent writers and artists, such as Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft and Tim Burton, to name a few. His birthday on January 19th was acknowledged this year by Altpick member Janice Fried, who shared this beautiful honorary portrait.
