Blood of a Poet (ebook)
"Blood of a Poet," an excursion into the literary genre of weird supernatural fiction, concerns the life of Robert Edward Bartlett, a poet from the city of Baltimore, Maryland, during the early years of the nineteenth-century. The story of his strange life evolves from one of childhood innocence into a maddening nightmare teeming with alcohol, drugs, deception, and death. Although fictional, Bartlett's story does have some basis in fact related to Baltimore's historical background. This novella is loosely based on the short and tragic life of William Henry Leonard Poe (1807 to 1831), Edgar Poe's older brother who also was a poet, and is dedicated to Jean Cocteau, director and writer of "The Blood of the Poet," a weird piece of French cinema made in 1930.
