    An English ode is a lyrical stanza in praise of, or dedicated to someone or something that captures the poet's interest or serves as an inspiration for the ode. The lyrics can be on various themes. The earliest odes in the English language, using the word in its strict form, were the Epithalamium and Prothalamium of Edmund Spenser.

    In the 17th century, the most important original odes in English are by Abraham Cowley. These were iambic, but had irregular line length patterns and rhyme schemes. Cowley based the principle of his Pindariques on an apparent misunderstanding of Pindar's metrical practice but, nonetheless, others widely imitated his style, with notable success by John Dryden.

    ith Pindar's metre being better understood in the 18th century, the fashion for Pindaric odes faded, though there are notable actual Pindaric odes by Thomas Gray, The Progress of Poesy and The Bard. -- Wikipedia

    Edgar Allan Poe (/poʊ/; born Edgar Poe; January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) was an American writer, editor, and literary critic. Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States and American literature as a whole, and he was one of the country's earliest practitioners of the short story. Poe is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre and is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction.[1] He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.[2]

    Poe was born in Boston, the second child of two actors. His father abandoned the family in 1810, and his mother died the following year. Thus orphaned, the child was taken in by John and Frances Allan of Richmond, Virginia. They never formally adopted him, but Poe was with them well into young adulthood. Tension developed later as John Allan and Edgar repeatedly clashed over debts, including those incurred by gambling, and the cost of secondary education for the young man. Poe attended the University of Virginia for one semester but left due to lack of money. Poe quarreled with Allan over the funds for his education and enlisted in the Army in 1827 under an assumed name. It was at this time that his publishing career began, albeit humbly, with the anonymous collection of poems Tamerlane and Other Poems (1827), credited only to "a Bostonian". With the death of Frances Allan in 1829, Poe and Allan reached a temporary rapprochement. However, Poe later failed as an officer cadet at West Point, declaring a firm wish to be a poet and writer, and he ultimately parted ways with John Allan.

    Poe switched his focus to prose and spent the next several years working for literary journals and periodicals, becoming known for his own style of literary criticism. His work forced him to move among several cities, including Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City. In Richmond in 1836, he married Virginia Clemm, his 13-year-old cousin. In January 1845, Poe published his poem "The Raven" to instant success. His wife died of tuberculosis two years after its publication. For years, he had been planning to produce his own journal The Penn (later renamed The Stylus), though he died before it could be produced. Poe died in Baltimore on October 7, 1849, at age 40; the cause of his death is unknown and has been variously attributed to alcohol, brain congestion, cholera, drugs, heart disease, rabies, suicide, tuberculosis, and other agents.[3] -- Wikipedia

                      Feel free to write this section as a paragraph, in bullet points, or in highlighted segments as seen in strengths and weaknesses. Whatever you feel most comfortable with! As well, you will need to add more flowers to the right side in order to keep everything justified and not overflowing.

DISLIKES
                      greedy people ◇ humid weather ◇ neon colors ◇ bad decor ◇ loud noises ◇ thieves ◇ grime ◇ modern art ◇ shrill voices ◇ smog ◇ police sirens ◇ cacophony ◇ drunkenness ◇ cigarette smoke ◇ being treated as strange ◇ sugar in coffee ◇ bruises ◇ crying ◇ broken promises ◇ corruption ◇ jealous people ◇ migraines ◇ taking pills ◇ betrayal ◇ lack of hygiene ◇ clutter ◇ cramped elevators ◇ team sports (he's laughably bad)

STRENGTHS
                      ❝ Charisma ; Many have wandered and gotten lost across his lips, as lies tumble freely and ensnare them. A smile that lights his eyes, he draws them in as if moth to a flame. Sometimes he wonders if they only stay due to the brand of his watch or the cost of his home, and not an innate charismatic quality he inherited from his father who grew an empire on nothing but his own magnetism.
                      ❝ Charisma ; Whilst normal people forget details, useless facts from archaic books, sights, smells, sounds he seems to recall many things that have slipped the minds of others. While this can come in handy it is something that has cursed his mind with a sensory overload of data.

WEAKNESSES
                      ❝ Charisma ; Many have wandered and gotten lost across his lips, as lies tumble freely and ensnare them. A smile that lights his eyes, he draws them in as if moth to a flame.
