Yet the true story of Poes time in Richmond, Virginia is every bit as strange and exciting as his fiction. Poe spent nearly a third of his life in Richmond. It was here that he matched wits with a chess-playing robot, set the record for swimming against the current in the James River, challenged a rival editor to a duel, and first revealed his talent for practical jokes. Join Christopher P. Semtner, Curator of the Edgar Allan Poe Museum, as he reveals previously unpublished photographs and little known source material to shed new light on how the mystery, madness, and tragedy Poe encountered during his Richmond years forever shaped his renowned fiction.
