Poe had nothing but tragedy in his life. His mom died of TB, his wife died from TB, he lived with and aunt and uncle who treated him well, but couldn't help him overcome his sadness. He took opium (but so did a whole slew of people - it wasn't an illegal drug) and he died alone, broke, and drunk (probably). There is speculation is was manic-depressive, but some things don't fit. I think his writings were his therapy. In The Cast of Amontillado, you get a glimpse into the mind of a person in a manic state (I think). The main character seems to think he has the right to brick the poor guy in for some unmentioned "1000 wrongs". It's a great short story.
