I would have said violet perhaps. Red and then black are strong in Poe's writings. As a minor note, Poe's hair was brown, as was his suit that shows so darkly in those photos taken mainly when he was worn and in deep trouble late in his life. Poe's aesthetics, while sometimes extreme, are not so morbid or gothic as one might expect. Lurid gentility?
