Edgar Allan Poe: Friends and Enemies – a Walking Tour
This walking tour will discuss Boston-born writer Edgar Allan Poe and his relationship to several literary figures buried at Mount Auburn. Included on the tour will be the publisher of one of Poe’s most famous short stories, the publisher of his single most famous poem, and the writer who became his greatest target as a literary critic. Some were friends, and some were enemies. Independent literary historian and Poe performer Rob Velella will help us determine which was which.
