These disasters help to mold some of the most ominous and intellectually challenging poetry ever written. For the short duration of Poe’s life, he was seen as a literary critic rather than an author. To the modern generation his unbeknown status seems bafflingly inconceivable, considering his now acclaimed publications. Edgar Allan Poe’s writing was very much dictated by his life.

The researchers used RNAi to identify genes that aid parkin in tagging damaged mitochondria. They found that genes, TOMM7, HSPAI1L, BAG4 and SIAH3, may assist in either inhibiting parkin (TOMM7, HSPAI1L) or enhancing tagging (BAG4, SIAH3)....   [tags: medicine, Parkinson’s and Lung Cancer]

Women are mentioned relatively few times in the Iliad in comparison with the books devoted solely to the men. Nevertheless, there is clear evidence that the role of women in this society was that of a servile follower.
