HELP! 300 POINT PROJECT INFO NEEDED!greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread
guessing this would be his life/family. Does anyone know Lenore's (his exwife's) maiden name? Bah! I gotta have it! If anyone has any info, please let me know! thanks!

He married Virginia Clemm, his cousin, who died. Lenore is just a poetic name and does not equate with Virginia. His nickname for her was "Sissy". Poems about her especially are more likely "Eulalie" and "Ulalume".

also, you can not consider her an ex-wife. She died, so he was a widdower. he did not divorce any of his wives. They all passed away.

but he did have more than one wife so what were all of their names?

Poe was married only once--to Virginia Clemm.
