At the time of his death, in 1849, the infamous poet and writer was given a less than fitting burial, with a funeral for Edgar Allan Poe attended to by only around ten people, his gravestone destroyed and his obituary written by a snide and snarky enemy of Poe’s that tarnished his reputation unduly.
So, in a tribute befitting of one of the nineteenth century's greatest writers, a second funeral is to be held for Edgar Allan Poe which will be attended by famous writers of today and will include an open casket replica of the writer, and have excerpts from works that the author inspired read at the ceremony.
