In 1827 Pvt. Edgar Perry arrived at Ft. Moultrie on Sullivan's Island near Charleston and served for 14 months. The haunted, turbulent atmosphere of the South Carolina Lowcountry was a perfect environment to feed Pvt. Perry's poetic despair and dark sensitivity. Twenty years later he was internationally known as Edgar Allan Poe. His tortured literary genius is perfectly reflected in these four Charleston-based tales from the Master of Melancholy.
