After spending three weeks studying Edgar Allan Poe’s writings and his life, students in Nikki Parker’s English 1 class at Polk County High School held a funeral for the famous poet.

Students spent the beginning of class embodying someone who knew Poe back in the day. They wrote eulogies to perform at the service.

Students performed the eulogies with much emotion, a few even able to bring tears for the beloved man.
