The burlesque short story, "King Pest," published by Poe in 1835, takes the reader on an adventure with two sailors in search of a drink. The two drunkards begin at a bar, and after being thrown out, venture out into London's streets during the time of the plague. The two are not deterred by The Black Death and continue their quest for intoxication.
