 +===== Description =====
 +**Edgar Allan Poe's Politian** is an audio performance of Poe's melodrama theatrical play set in 16th-century Rome. It is directed by Misan Akuya and presented as a streaming YouTube video.

 +<​blockquote>​The play is a fictionalized version of a true event in Kentucky: the murder of Solomon P. Sharp by Jereboam O. Beauchamp in 1825. The so-called "​Kentucky Tragedy"​ became a national headline and attracted several fictional representations. Poe, however, chose to set his version in 16th-century Rome.

 +The play takes place in 16th-century Rome. Castiglione,​ the son of a duke, becomes engaged to his cousin Alessandra, inciting the jealousy of his father'​s ward, the orphan Lalage. Lalage meets Politian, the Earl of Leicester, and, after some flirtation, convinces him to take revenge on Castiglione.((https://​en.wikipedia.org/​w/​index.php?​title=Politian_play&​oldid=851552834))</​blockquote>​
