Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive

About the Show

Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive is a docudrama that tells the fascinating and revealing story of one of the world's best known - and most misunderstood - writers. The film explores the misrepresentations of Poe as an alcoholic madman, akin to the narrators of his horror stories, and reveals the way in which, perhaps more than any other writer of his time, and even our own time, Poe tapped into what it means to be a human being in our modern and sometimes frightening world.
