What happy things happened to Poe?

If you were writing a movie based on Poe's life would it have to be two hours of sheer depression? What uplifting events could you script to make the viewer feel a little happy?

Something good must have happened in his life. I just can't think what it was...

Crab cakes. Poe was quite fond of them. Eating crab cakes gave him some of the happiest moments of his life. Also Chesapeake Bay oysters. The little ones.
