The Masque of Red Death has always been my favorite. Is she the daughter of the great granddaughter of the sister he was in love with by any chance? I am pretty sure he was in love with his sister, but I might be mistaken because I also remember them being split up upon the death of their parents. Either way, seems like a cool trip.
I'm not sure of the exact relation, I'll have to ask. However, she was considering copying the "family book" (I guess it's like a family tree & info thing) and donating it to the Poe Society so they could display it in the house.
Pretty cool that almost all of his most famous writings were written/published in that house.
He married his cousin Virginia.
and I have to post this picture because it's cool. Illustration of "Ligeia" by Harry Clarke, 1919.
