Still available to watch for free on Youtube . THE DEATH OF POE. Why was Poe in Baltimore ? Why was he in clothes not his own? Why did he die at only 40 years of age ? What was his last week like? What was "Cooping" ? On October 3, 1849, Poe was found semiconscious in Baltimore, "in great distress, and... in need of immediate assistance", according to Joseph W. Walker, who found him. He was taken to the Washington Medical College, where he died on Sunday, October 7, 1849, at 5:00 in the morning. Poe was not coherent long enough to explain how he came to be in his dire condition and why he was wearing clothes that were not his own. His attending physician Dr Moran said that Poe's final words were, "Lord help my poor soul". All of the relevant medical records have been lost, including Poe's death certificate. #film #drama #horror #EdgarAllanPoe #biography #biopic #MarkRedfieldStudios #Halloween #share #repost
