        Explore the literature of Edgar Allan Poe, Lord Byron, and “the most poetical topic in the world” in this series of videos from the American Masters film, Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive. Discussion questions, teaching tips, and a student handout ask students to analyze poetry, compare Byron and Poe, and explore the impact of death on early 19th century literature and culture.
