Heartbroken by the idea of losing his beloved wife, Virginia, who lies dying in their small country cottage, Edgar Allan Poe relives his past and writings as he copes with poverty and grief. From a tumultuous relationship with his foster father to the excruciating guilt felt by the servant in "The Tell-Tale Heart," Poe is taken over by his darkest memories and fantasies, including his most famous works "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Cask of Amontillado," and "The Raven."
