Nevermore: A Photobiography of Edgar Allan Poe (Photobiographies)Nevermore: A Photobiography of Edgar Allan Poe by Karen Lange

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a wonderful biography about Poe, with excellent photos and sources. I discovered Poe when I was in 7th grade, and read most of his short stories which I found chilling and very creepy. But, I especially loved his poem, Annabel Lee. I must have read that poem a thousand times, and can still recite much of it by heart. His death is still a mystery--too bad there was no CSI teams back then. He is considered the father of detective fiction.

A sad, tragic, too-short life, but this book is a great introduction for any middle school student.
