Edgar Allan Poe, writer and editor, was haunted by his past as an orphan and a life alone. This past may have explained Poe's writings about demons and the afterlife but it also led Poe to alcohol abuse, madness, and self-destruction, which was highlighted by his interview with with U.S. President John Tyler for a government job that he talked himself out of by suggesting magazine subscriptions.
