A quiet madness : a biographical novel of Edgar Allan Poe / John Isaac Jones.
John Isaac Jones’s new biographical novel on Edgar Allan Poe brings the turbulent life of America’s most famous poet to life in vivid, captivating detail. His time - 1810-40s America; Lewis and Clark have returned from their great adventure; the Monroe doctrine takes effect, the War of 1812; Andrew Jackson's tempestuous presidency; the train, the steamship and the graphite pencil were still being improved; the Mexican-American War, the trail of tears, the California gold rush. His loves - His frail, devoted stepmother who tried to protect him from his cruel stepfather; Jane Stanard, his stepmother’s best friend who initiated him first into poetry, then into manhood; the violet-eyed, mysterious Lenore whose death inspired The Raven; Virginia Clemm, his first cousin and great love of his life whom he married one day after her 13th birthday. His genius - Edgar Allan Poe, poet and short story writer who penned the classics The Raven and Annabel Lee; single-handedly created the detective mystery genre; wrote some of the most enduring horror stories in all literature including The Fall of The House of Usher, The Cask of Amontillado, The Tell-Tale Heart and the Pit and The Pendulum. These pages deliver a compelling portrait of one of the greatest men of letters the world has ever known.
