CSI: Poetry. The Life and Death (Ok Just Death) of Poets

My Poetic Side has combed their database and compiled an infographic of the leading causes of death for poets.

Given the archetype of a poet suffering for their art in a poorly-insulated garret, one might think that frostbite or hypothermia would be a leading cause, but no. The mortal wound of a bad review is also missing from this list; instead, the most common cause of death was cancer, followed by heart disease.
