9780312567231: The Raven's Bride: A Novel

When eight-year-old Virginia "Sissy" Clemm meets her handsome cousin, Eddy, she sees the perfect husband she's conjured up in childhood games. Thirteen years her elder, he's soft-spoken, brooding, and handsome. Eddy fails his way through West Point and the army yet each time he returns to Baltimore, their friendship grows. As Sissy trains for a musical career, her childhood crush turns to love. When she's thirteen, Eddy proposes. But as their happy life darkens, Sissy endures Poe's abrupt disappearances, self-destructive moods, and alcoholic binges. When she falls ill, his greatest fear– that he'll lose the woman he loves– drives him both madness, and to his greatest literary achievement.

Part ghost story, part love story, this provocative novel explores the mysterious, shocking relationship between Edgar Allan Poe and young Sissy Clemm, his cousin, muse and great love. Lenore Hart, author of Becky, imagines the beating heart of the woman who inspired American literature's most demonized literary figure– and who ultimately destroyed him.

About the Author:

Lenore Hart is the author of Waterwoman, Ordinary Springs, The Treasure of Savage Island and Becky: The Life and Loves of Becky Thatcher. She teaches in the graduate creative writing program at Wilkes Univesity, and at the Norman Mailer Writers Colony in Cape Cod. She lives on the eastern shore of Virginia.

From Booklist:

Edgar Allan Poe is one of the most famous figures in American literature, but his wife, Virginia Sissy Clemm, is a mere footnote. Hart (Becky, 2008) sets out to rectify this in her vividly imagined new novel. First cousins Eddy and Sissy become acquainted when shes seven years old and marry when shes a mere 13. Hart delicately handles this relationship, which modern readers are likely to find wildly inappropriate, by imbuing Sissy with a quick mind and a depth of feeling beyond her years. Though this unconventional love story, narrated from Sissys perspective, plays out against Poes black depressions, bouts with alcohol, and failure to earn a steady income, Sissy shines through as muse and steadfast supporter. Time and again she saves Poe from the abyss, often at the expense of her own dreamsshe longed to become a singerand ultimately her health. Its her final illness that inspires Poe to pen The Raven, but Hart suggests that had fate been kinder, Sissy may have become as celebrated in life as she was in death. --Patty Wetli

Descripción Griffin Publishing, United States, 2011. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Virginia Sissy Clemm falls in love with her cousin Edgar Allan Poe when she s merely a girl of seven. Fourteen years her elder, he s dark and brooding, the picture of a little girl s romantic fantasy. He floats in and out of her childhood, as he fails his way through West Point, the military and a succession of editorial jobs where his talents aren t appreciated. Each time he returns, their odd friendship grows stronger, and her understanding of the moody, troubled writer takes on new and strange dimensions. But her childhood crush takes a serious turn, when he proposes marriage at 13. Her mother objects, but Sissy cannot be swayed. She devotes her young life to Edgar Allan Poe. This provocative novel explores the curious and confounding relationship between Edgar Allan Poe and his child bride Sissy, who, before she died of consumption at age 25, was Poe s constant companion, critic and friend. Lenore Hart, author of Becky, explores the inner life of one of literature s most heralded and haunted figures by imagining the heart of the woman who loved him, inspired him and undid him.
