Beyond The Raven: The Poe You Don’t Know
September 19 - November 6, 2019

Poet, critic, master of horror. Inventor of the detective tale. Science fiction writer extraordinaire in a time when the genre was mere decades old. Inspiration for generations of writers, artists, performers, and readers alike. Edgar Allan Poe’s legacy endures due to his imagination and innovation of the language he used within his literary forms.

As the Frazier History Museum celebrates the 10th anniversary of our Edgar Allan Poe Performance Series, An Evening With Poe, we are looking retrospectively—and toward the future—on Edgar Allan Poe’s legacy in popular culture, which not only endures but manifests itself in unexpected and delightful ways across the decades.
