English term or phrase: psychotic poseur
They're talking about Edgar Allan Poe
Carlos
Spanish translation:persona que simula ser psicotica
Explanation:
Edgar Allan Poe had a lot of personality problems, but I do not think they really proved his supposed psychosis, I think he 'posed' as a psychotic to make himself more interesting.
Good luck,

Explanation:
While the first answerer is correct in that the two words ammount to the same thing, both words were used so this would be the translation as it was written originally and what I'm pretty confident was meant by the author. Hope this helps! Suerte!
