Edgar Allan Poe

C: I love Edgar Allan Poe, but he was so sad. He even looks sad in pictures. Didn't he die of an aneurysm?

A: No, he died of mysterious circumstances when he was 40.

C: Really?

A:Yeah, he was born in 1809, he died at exactly 40.

C: Oh, I thought he died in like his seventies.

A: No. In the 1840s, Caitlan? Do you know how much malaria was going around then?

C:Did he die of malaria?

A: No, he died of mysterious circumstances, Caitlan, you need to work on your memory.
