Edgar Allan Poe’s Mystery Man
An examination of the mysteries surrounding Edgar Allan Poe’s strange graveyard character in `Mystery Man`.
This paper examines the mysterious visitor who pays tribute to Edgar Allan Poe at his grave in Westminster Churchyard in Baltimore, Maryland.
“Within the weathered brick walls of Westminster Churchyard, at the corner of Fayette and Greene Streets in Baltimore, Maryland, a cold marble shrine marks the final resting place of a tormented soul. 1 In life, he was haunted by torturing memories–memories of wrong and injustice and imputed dishonor and from a sense of some strange, impending doom. In death, his memory endures in the hearts of those who still honor his great literary genius as a poet who eternally searched for supernal beauty in a world filled with poverty and abandonment and produced some of the world’s finest tales of the macabre and the supernatural.
