Famous American Authors

Show Summary

Take an intimate look at the lives and legacies of three of America's greatest authors in this compelling collection from BIO, from the haunting poems of melancholy author Edgar Allen Poe, to the masterful writing of Nobel laureate Ernest Hemingway and the irreverent storyline of literary giant Mark Twain. Descend into the dark world and life of Poe, an uncontested master of the macabre and genius whose depressed nature made his own life as tragic as one of his tales. Journey from the hospital in Milan where Hemingway first found love, to the resort community in the Midwest where he took his own lilfe, in a feature-length portrait narrated by his granddaughter, actress Mariel Hemingway. And watch as rare photographs, expert interviews, and excerpts from the stories that made Twain a legend bring his astonishing story to life.
