About the Performer

David Keltz gave his first performance as Edgar Allan Poe on Halloween night 1991 at Poe’s grave. Delighting all ages, he commands five hours of Poe’s poems, short stories, essays, literary criticism, letters and reported conversations.

Beginning with “The Tell-Tale Heart,” Mr. Keltz added “The Black Cat,” “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar,” “Hop-Frog,” “The Cask of Amontillado,” “Some Words with a Mummy,” “The Spectacles,” and “The Pit and the Pendulum” to his repertoire. In keeping with Edgar Poe’s own “Poetic Principle,” Mr. Keltz recites “To Helen,” “Annabel Lee,” “The Raven,” and many more of Poe’s famous poems.

In his travels, Mr. Keltz performed in Prague, Czech Republic for the International Poe Festival, opening the Festival at the Rudolfinum Concert Hall with “The Bells.” Stateside, he continues to bring Edgar Allan Poe to life for elementary and high schools, universities, and private organizations, large and small.
