Poe is filled with anxiety, unpredictable intelligence, and imagination beyond compare. He was not always a nerd - he had a military career and even attended Westpoint years earlier. He also invented the detective story before the word "detective" existed, invented the story of buried treasure, and dabbled in science fiction. He was educated in Britain and briefly attended the University of Virginia., yet he was poverty-stricken for his entire adult life. He saw many of his dearest family members die of consumption (tuberculosis) including his mother, foster mother, and wife.
