I'll bet you didn't know....

On this day in 1849, The New York Daily Tribune published Edgar Allan Poe's last poem, "Annabel Lee."

That poem is probably my favorite Edgar Allan Poe poem, read it by clicking on the link.

In fact, I once named a kitten after "Annabel Lee."

It's a very interesting story, too. Poe had died two days before it was published and the story, linked, outlines the rumors and "conspiracy theories" surrounding his death. Yes, conspiracy theories appear to have existed in 1849. :)
