Personality Profile For Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe

The following is a personality profile of Edgar Allan Poe based on his work.

He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done. Considers independence to guide a large part of what he does: he likes to set his own goals to decide how to best achieve them.
