3. Tagged book
4. Neither really. I read mainly ebooks on my iPad.

Definitely one of the shortest, quickest but most fulfilling biographies of Poe I‘ve ever read. If you don‘t want to get into a ton of detail and the supposed symbolism behind every piece of Poe‘s writing, this is the book for you. Great start to finish with a ton of follow up reading listed (some of which now sit on my TBR). My first five star read of 2018!

This is a short biography (under 150 pages) which was perfect for me as I am not a huge Poe reader. Dedicated fans may want a biography with more meat but as the majority of his life was pretty dismal, I was ok with this length.
