  • The Final Days of Edgar Allan Poe
  • By: Cooper Simon
  • Saddler's
  • Many drinks later...
  • I feel ill...
  • This says you have a considerable fever.
  • Also, tomorrow I am leaving for Baltimore.
  • But you can't, not in that condition!
  • The next morning...
  • After meeting up with a friend, Poe goes to a popular restaraunt.
  • Poe gets to the place, oblivious that he took his friend's cane with him.
  • I might actually die before getting back home...
  • He supposedly has too many drinks, but states that he feels fine.
  • 5:00p.m. Hospital
  • He returns home, once again, oblivious that he has the wrong cane, and forgot his luggage this time.
  • 3:00a.m.
  • Once getting home, Poe constantly complains about how ill he feels, and finds out he has a severe fever.
  • Him and his wife, Virginia Clemm, get angry at each other, as Poe states he is leaving soon.
  • The End & Epilogue
  • Not many know exactly how Edgar Allan Poe really died, though some say that it was due to alcohol, or possibly another illness prior to entering Richmond.
  • Either early morning or late night, Edgar boards the ship that is soon leaving back to Baltimore.
  • Virginia tries to wake up early to catch him on the way out, but fails.
  • Still oblivious of his missing luggage, Poe expects to die before even making it home.
  • During the trip...
  • Arriving at the hospital in Baltimore(supposedly) unconscious, Poe wakes up trembling until the next day.
  • His behavior is followed by imaginary shapes, constant talking, as well as constant delirium as to where he left his luggage.
  • He constantly yells, and finally calms down, then dies.
