Edgar Allan Poe and Cinema
17 September 2003 | by The-Lonely-LondonerSee all my reviews

This was Edgar Allan Poe's most successful piece of literature, but yet he gave it away free of charge without any access to royalties or copyright. It was inspired by a dinner he had with Charles Dickens, but he also went against convention by stating 'Once upon a dreary midnight' rather than 'Once upon a time'.
