I love this. But you didn't apparently know that the temperance movement was started because of rampant child and spousal abuse. Alcoholism became a huge problem and they were trying to combat it. I mean, in hindsight it was a bad choice, but to give them a little credit, they were desperate.

I don't know why everyone's saying a 13 yr old marrying an adult was normal. In the year Poe and Virginia were married, the average age for a person to get married was 22. Virginia's mother wrote on the marriage certificate that she was 21. It wasn't ok then, it's not ok now. Thankfully, most historians believe that they never consummated the marriage, and Poe only married her so she could escape poverty. He referred to her as his 'sister'.

I thought Poe was addicted to Benzodiazepines, which could explain his tolerance to alcohol as benzos have contradictory affects when combined with boozes. #postmortem

hey boys i love you guys but maybe we could, y'know, stop referring to mentally ill artists as "tortured geniuses?" it's kind of an icky term because it implies that their mental health issues caused their talent and that those issues were somehow beneficial to them. this is something you did with van gogh as well and it's just not a great term to use. again i love your videos and your channel but i didn't watch this one all the way through because that really is something i wish people would stop saying and i'd appreciate it if you did too
