The Art of Becoming Edgar Allan Poe…Getting inside the mind of a tortured soul

My book series roughly revolves around the works of Edgar Allan Poe, and the 19th century in general. Today, as I was writing book two, I had the experience of re-creating what Edgar would have really been like, if you had met him in the flesh.

Since my book is a bit quirky, and at times funny, I decided to take Edgar’s personality to an unexpected level. A bit nutty, and a bit eccentric and self centered, Edgar tends to excite all around him. When I Wikipedia’d him, there was an old photo, and despite his undeniable look of disdain, and perhaps boredom, I played at the gentle fact, that I definitely almost sense a smirk, deep within, one that fooled everyone. I believe he merely wore a mask, played his part to enlist his work.

As one of the founding fathers of Science Fiction, I found that adding him to the Feather Book Series was a natural partnership. Besides his additions to the world of Sci-fi, he was also the first to bring the world of Mystery/Thriller, to the forefront, being the first to start the genre.

Now, I hadn’t known all this when I initially enlisted to use “The Raven” as a founding topic of Feather, but now, I find that Edgar fits more than ever into my scene, creating the perfect web of mystery, and interest.

In book two, Guardian, expect to see Edgar depicted as never before. An eccentrically happy man in his forties, the forties he never lived, but lives now. A man full of happiness, creation, and dark secrets, a man I see as myself, and more.

    I like your premise about Poe’s smirk. Poe definitely had a great sense of humor, a playful side, and was a lot more fun than the melancholy image others have painted of him. Just remember to spell his name Edgar “Allan” Poe (or, better yet, use the name he used: Edgar A. Poe)!

    I love Edgar A. Poe’s work.
    I’ve been meaning to buy his complete works. I’ve been meaning to buy a lot of books recently, but I have to wait until I have a paycheque to do so.
