Edgar Allan Poe - drunk, desolate, death-haunted - finds things getting worse as he is locked overnight in Philadelphias Moyamensing Prison where his worst nightmares await him. An obscurebut true incident from the closing act of Poes tragic lifeMoreEdgar Allan Poe - drunk, desolate, death-haunted - finds things getting worse as he is locked overnight in Philadelphias Moyamensing Prison where his worst nightmares await him. An obscurebut true incident from the closing act of Poes tragic life inspires a surreal, scary and darkly comic psychological portrait of the tragic genius.Poe left an account not only of his incarceration in Moyamensing, but also of the hallucinations he suffered therein: horrors to match anything in his fiction, but strange beauties too.

Follow him through encounters with sinister guards, hungry rats, a murderous doppelganger and a surgeon over-keen to wield his saw on the living, but also a meeting with a sublimely beautiful woman echoing more than one of the women Poe loved and lost.
