Edgar Allan Poe Bio

...Edgar Poe was born on the 19th of January, 1809 in Boston, Massachusetts. His father was David Poe Jr. and his mother was Elizabeth Arnold Hopkins Poe. Both of them were actors. Edgar had an elder brother named William Henry Leonard Poe and a younger sister named Rosalie Poe. In 1810, their father abandoned them, and within a year their mother died of consumption. Edgar went to live with John Allan who was a Scottish tobacco merchant living in Richmond, Virginia. His siblings went to other families. The Allan family was quite well to do, and Edgar lived a good life with them. As a mark of respect for his adoptive family, Edgar took the middle name of Allan and came to be known as Edgar Allan Poe. In 1815, the Allans along with Edgar traveled to England, where Edgar began to attend school. In 1815, he attended Grammar School in Irvine, Scotland, and in a boarding school in Chelsea in 1817. After that, he attended the Reverend John Bransby’s Manor House School at Stoke Newington near London. In 1826, he joined the University of Virginia, but he left within a year. Although the Allans were quite well off, John Allan would not give Edgar much money for his survival in college. To make up for the less money, Edgar began to gamble and lost heavily. His gambling debts created further rifts between him and John Allan. Poe was poor and needed money. So he joined the United States Army under the assumed name of Edgar A. Perry. He served for two years and attained the rank of......

Mount Auburn Hospital : Physician Order Entry

...Mount Auburn Hospital: Physician Order Entry Physician Order Entry (POE) * An additional module to the PCI by MEDITECH * Intended to reduce preventable ADEs (Adverse Drug Effects) * Pilot implementation to be done in the labor and delivery unit Overview of the Current Process | Overview of the Proposed Process | Objectives and suggested recommendations Training of staff Any implementation of an extensive system such a POE needs to ensure all stakeholders are onboard the new process. This requires them to accept the changes as well as being sufficiently trained to take advantages of POE. To address the first issue, we suggest involving physicians, nurses, pharmacists etc. early on in the designing the system and discussing their key concerns. Once the entire staff feels part of the team implementing the change, they are more likely to accept it than if asked to adopt a predetermined decision. A system adoption statistic can be released monthly to encourage each ward to compete and speedily implement the new change. For training, staff should be fully trained in a seminar about the key aspects of the system that concern them. A systems manager should always be available for troubleshooting. Expansion of system adoption The decision to implement the phase 1 of POE in labour and delivery ward makes sense as the medication and treatments there are much simpler to try out the new system. POE system can be tested here for months and changes suggested can be......

Edgar Allen Poe

... April 22, 2011 Edgar Allan Poe To most people, Edgar Allan Poe was a troubled soul that had many psychological issues. Some people think that his works mimicked his own mental torment and torture; others thought that he was an American writer romantically doomed to failure by events and emotions too great for him to handle. His writings reflect each theory, and his style was very unique and unusual for the time period in which they were written. The artistic liberties and risks that Poe took in his works sparked the beginning of what we call the Romanticism Period. The hardships and tragedies which Edgar Allan Poe faced throughout his life played a big part in influencing his writing, how his writing influenced the period, and how it affected his mental stability (Life 240). Poe was born on January 19, 1809, in Boston, Massachusetts, to David and Elizabeth Poe. He had two siblings, a younger sister named Rosalie and an older brother named Henry. When Poe was just one, his father abandoned his wife and children. At two his mother died of tuberculosis and the children were split up into different homes (Tragedies 240). Poe was taken in by John Allan and his childless wife Frances, giving him his middle name. Having experienced many tragedies at an early age, he, starting at the age of six, developed a great fear of death and this influenced how and what he would later write (Jordan np). The Allan couple lived in Richmond, Virginia, and Poe was moved to their home very......

Poe and Shakespeare

...Although, many have been inspired by the likes of Edgar Allen Poe and Shakespeare, there are similarities and differences between the two. Each author has been able to lure their audiences by the characteristics of their writing. Their places in society differ as each had different ways of dealing with the people in society, and their influences in literature has molded how many people see them as great prestigious authors. The types of writing that Poe and Shakespeare wrote can be compared and contrasted in two categories, genre and language. Both Poe and Shakespeare wrote tragedies, but Shakespeare was also fluent in comedies and romance, such as “Romeo and Juliet.” Poe was only familiar with tragedy in a dark and mysterious sense, such as, “The Raven.” Every short story or poem written by Poe has had a dark ambiance about it. He is also widely recognized as the inventor of the modern detective story and a mastermind in the science fiction genre. Another difference is, in the language used between the two authors. Mostly, this it is because of the time eras they lived in. Poe's writing used an intricate vocabulary to create mysterious imagery to capture and lure the reader into the story. “But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only, That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.” His writing was a reflection from the era of the Dark Romantics, which fit his writing to a tee. Shakespeare wrote in the language that was used in his time,......

Poe, a Man of Mystery

...Poe, a Man of Mystery EN1320 Danielle Waters April 21, 2013 Edgar Allan Poe’s life from beginning to end was shrouded in turmoil and touched with mystery. He was a curious man in life that left much mystery in the wake of his passing. Several theories exist but there is no absolute answer to Poe’s untimely death. He was born January 19, 1908 in Boston, Massachusetts, orphaned at the age of three when his mother passed away and then “went to live with John and Frances Allan, a successful tobacco merchant and his wife, in Richmond, Virginia.” (“Edgar,” 2013, p. 2) He attended the University of Virginia until financial issues forced him to move home. He also attended West Point but was kicked out after only a year for poor management of his obligations. In 1836 Poe married his young cousin, Virginia, when she was age 13. He worked for a few magazines earning himself a reputation as a ferocious critic by writing venomous reviews of his peers. In his writing career he became known as the “Father of the Detective story” forever changing the face of the genre. One of his works, “The Raven,” is one of the best known poems in American Literature. His adored Virginia passed away in 1847 and Poe became overwhelmed with grief. He continued to work but suffered from poor health and struggled fiscally. There has been much debate on how Poe’s final days were spent. Some say he drank himself to death while other theories suggest carbon monoxide poisoning, epilepsy......

The Auburn System and the Eastern State Penitentiary systems were put together to teach the inmates lessons and orders and discipline. They wanted theses systems to change a criminal into a law-abiding citizen. Teach the inmate a trade; rehabilitate the offender so he can become an asset in industrial growth. Both prison systems plans wanted obedience, order, a regular routine of labor and both systems wanted the prisoners to be isolated in some kind of way. The Eastern State penitentiary system structure had a tower in the middle similar to an octagon and all the wings went into it. Like an X with many other radiating lines. The Auburn Prison looked more like buildings. The Auburn system was known as a silent system. They called the Auburn system this because the prisoners slept alone.

In Poe

...First, in Poe’s literary works, the tone can be often described as melancholy or sadness of the spirit. Poe had a number of experiences in his life, that caused him to feel sad. His melancholy is reflected in the tone of his works. One such work, The Raven, was written during the time his wife named Virginia was dying. “That I scarce was sure I heard you- here I opened wide the door;- Darkness there, and nothing more.” (The Raven). The poem is about a man who is grieving for his dead lover. This poem could be said to be written by Poe to express his sadness in the fact that Virginia’s time to die was nearing. This gives a depressing appeal to the reader and gives them a sense of Poe’s thoughts while writing The Raven. Another kind of sadness can be expressed in one of Poe’s short poems, Eldorado. “Fell as he found No spot of ground That looked like Eldorado.”(Eldorado) Throughout his life, Poe had always been searching for something, but he never found it. Poe suffered financial issues, he was gambling to earn money but ended up in deeper debt. This poem could have been written to show Poe’s desire and want to have a family, to be successful in his lifetime. Yet, he never got any of that. Eldorado has a more upbeat tone than to say, The Raven, but there still is a feeling of sadness. Wanting to reach something you always just seem to can’t, and yet never reaching it. Poe had a fascination with death, as depicted in his stories. Most likely because everyone around him was......

Mount Rushmore

...Mount Rushmore Grab your cameras and get ready to take some pictures of the 5,725-foot statue of the four presidents in the Black Hills of South Dakota. There are many different things to do at Mount Rushmore and there are many campsites to stay at. Mount Rushmore is a beautiful place to visit. On a typical day you might see several different species of wildflowers, deer, chipmunks and turkey vultures. The three things that make the Black Hills an exciting place to visit, includes the background history, activities, and near by sights. In 1923, Doane Robinson was the one who suggested carving some giant statues in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The giant statues were made to attract more people to the Black Hills with Colossal carvings of Western heroes. Robinson was not alone in carving the statues into the Black Hills. “Robinson had help from Senator Peter Norbeck and Congressman William Williamson” (nps.gov 2). “Congress passed legislation authorizing the mountain carving in Harney National Forest Preserve (now Black Hills National Forest)” (nps.gov 2). Robinson then contacted Gutzon Borglum, who agreed to come out to the Black Hills in 1924 to look at the area to see if the Carvings were possible. The plan was to carve the Needles area into tall granite figures, but he later found them to be too thin and weathered to support sculpture on a grand scale. Later Borglum was told about Mount Rushmore and immediately searched the area for a perfect area for the statues.......

Edgar Allan Poe

...EDGAR ALLAN POE Synopsis Born January 19, 1809, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S. American short-story writer, poet, critic, and Editor Edgar Allan Poe's tales of mystery and horror initiated the modern detective story, and the atmosphere in his tales of horror is unrivaled in American fiction. His The Raven (1845) numbers among the best-known poems in national literature. Early Life With his short stories and poems, Edgar Allan Poe captured the imagination and interest of readers around the world. His creative talents led to the beginning of different literary genres, earning him the nickname "Father of the Detective Story" among other distinctions. His life, however, has become a bit of mystery itself. And the lines between fact and fiction have been blurred substantially since his death. The son of actors, Poe never really knew his parents. His father left the family early on, and his mother passed away when he was only three. Separated from his siblings, Poe went to live with John and Frances Allan, a successful tobacco merchant and his wife, in Richmond, Virginia. He and Frances seemed to form a bond, but he never quite meshed with John. Preferring poetry over profits, Poe reportedly wrote poems on the back of some of Allan's business papers. Money was also an issue between Poe and John Allan. When Poe went to the University of Virginia in 1826, he didn't receive enough funds from Allan to cover all his costs. Poe turned to gambling to cover the difference, but ended up......

Mount Auburn Hospital: Physician Order Entry

...1. Introduction According to Webster’s dictionary (2011) a hospital is a health facility where patients receive treatment. Obviously, this definition does not state anything about the kind of treatment, the right or wrong treatment or who does the treatment a doctor, nurse etc. Questions one may not ask oneself till patients receive a wrong treatment. According to a landmark study in 1991 1.3 million injuries occur annually in U.S. hospitals of which 69% are partially due to errors in patient management and 13% of these resulted in a patient’s death (Mcafee, Macgregor, Benari, 2003.) Also the Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts became aware of the landmark study (1991) and is therefore preparing to set up a physician order entry (POE) system throughout their hospital. The labor and delivery ward will first use the POE system. The new POE system will be able to replace paper-based and verbal medication ordering processes with an information system. A doctor will enter the patient’s medication order via the new system, which will next transfer that order to the internal pharmacy. Mount Auburn faces the challenge of how to introduce the new system successfully to its new users. In addition, medical error rates at the Mount Auburn Hospital can be decreased through the implementation of a POE system, because it will improve the communication of the drug order between the physicians, nurses and pharmacist and it can guarantee available drug and patient information.......

The Life of Edgar Allan Poe

...The Mysterious Mr. Poe ” All that we see or seem, Is but a dream within a dream” (http://quotations.about.com/cs/morepeople/a/bls_edgar_allen.htm), this quote is one of many Poe’s famous sayings. He was known as the inventor of the modern detective story and innovator of the science fiction genre. Although, many people know him because of his tales of horror as well as his haunting lyric poetry there is a whole other side to him other than a morbid, mysterious creature lurking in the shadows of moonlit cemeteries. His childhood was very tragic and his adult life full of sorrow. This death though, was something to for everyone to think about. Poe, I believe is one of the most unique characters in the literary world. Edgar Poe (his original name), was born on January 19, 1809 in Boston. Within three years of his birth, both of Poe’s parents had died. His two siblings, Henry and Rosalie, moved away to live with other families. Poe, however, went to live with a wealthy tobacco merchant, Mr. John Allan, (hence, acquiring the middle name Allan). Poe had always dreamed since his childhood to be a writer, but, Mr. Allan wanted him to be a businessman and a Virginia gentleman. Because of Poe’s immense interest in poetry, by the time he was thirteen, he had acquired enough poetry to make a book. In 1826, Poe left for the University of Virginia. While excelling in his classes he had also accumulated a considerable amount of debt. Because of Poe’s debt, he had taken up to gambling......
