Stitched Deaths: Edgar Allan Poe

(d. Oct. 7, 1849)

Left behind at the fountain in front of the Providence Athenaeum.

Quote is his last. In a delirious state, Poe called out the name, "Reynolds!" over and over again while held in a prison-like hospital. A man of words, he was reduced to near incomprehension in his last days.
