Default Edgar Allan Poe....

Greatest writer of all time? Most of his writings were ahead of its time. It is pretty crazy to think that he wrote in the 1800's.

The use of description, words and writing style seem very modern for that period.

You don't have to call everyone GOAT to give them props, Allen Poe was definitely an original writer who influenced literature greatly. I read a lot of his works when I was a teen and loved his works, but I didn't understand his mastery till I did rereads of his works during my BA studies. A rare combination of eloquence and simplicity (influenced by 18th century restoration lit) which he integrated into a bleak atmosphere. Poe explored human mind and put emphasis on his violent and predatory nature, among the first to examine and present, in simple words, psychotic characters.

Poe's poetry was great. Unfortunately his private life was anything but great. He was a drunk, degenerate, incestuous, and his writing would help influence one of America's first serial killers H.H.Holmes.
