Transcript of John Astin as Edgar Allan Poe
I've not been very forthcoming about my time in Baltimore. I once claimed to have been born here, though I was really born in Boston, unfortunately. Unlike New York, Richmond, and Philadelphia, I never used Baltimore as a setting for any of my works. In fact, you hardly know how I spent the four years I lived here at all! All that's left are a few relics: my writings, and the places about town where I lived and visited. Perhaps in them you'll be able to piece together the enigma of my years here, another of my great mysteries.
