Edgar Allan Poe reviled by some in previous generations is now to shown respect with a re-burial and a tombstone.

In this the bi-centenary of his birth, Mr. Poe is still read across the world and has been the inspiration for composers, film makers and dance makers and no doubt many others.

Edgar would doubtless find the idea of a double funeral, replete with simulacrum, screamingly funny! :lol:

Thanks for posting this, leonid. Very few writers have had such a powerful influence and high, middle and low brow appeal as Poe.
