Edgar Allan Poe
(January 19, 1809 - October 7, 1849)
The poetry and short stories of Edgar Allan Poe reflect his personal battles with madness and depression. A stylistic genius, he created classic horror stories such as 'The Tell-Tale Heart' and 'The Cask of Amontillado;' his haunting poem of love lost, 'The Raven,' is among the most famous in the world. Poe is the father of the detective story and is thought by some to be the father of science fiction.
(December 10, 1830 - May 15, 1886)
Born to a prominent family in Amherst, Massachusetts, Emily Dickinson was an outgoing child but grew into an introspective and reclusive adult. Nevertheless, she wrote beautiful, perceptive poetry that revealed her amazing insight into what it means to be alive. Dickinson is considered the quintessential American poet, yet almost none of her more than 1,700 poems were published until after her death.
(December 16, 1775 - July 18, 1817)
A clergyman's daughter, Austen led a most uneventful life, yet she wrote six novels of remarkable wit, irony and craftsmanship. None of the books published in her lifetime had her name on them -- they were written 'By a Lady.'
(October 16, 1854 - November 30, 1900)
A playwright, novelist, critic, poet, and dandy, Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was one of the greatest celebrities of his day, known as much for his wit and lifestyle as for his writing. Wildes years of fame ended dramatically when he was imprisoned after being convicted of 'gross indecency' (a euphemism for homosexuality, which was illegal in England). Shortly after his release from prison, Wilde died penniless in Paris at the age of 46.
(April 24, 1564 - April 23, 1616)
Shakespeare is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest writer of the English-speaking world. Composing thirty-seven plays and several volumes of poetry, he truly had 'a Muse of fire.'
(January 25, 1882 - March 28, 1941)
A distinguished novelist, essayist and critic, and a central figure in the Bloomsbury group. Virginia was a nervous and delicate child, educated at home by her parents. Her writing explores concepts of time, memory and inner consciousness, and is remarkable for its humanity and depth of perception. Suffering from frequent bouts of depression, Woolf drowned herself in the River Ouse in 1941.
