"The Poe that most people think of today—gloomy, unattractive, a bit mad—was not the Poe of 1845. The creepy Poe of legend is a product of the worst smear job in literary history, thanks to his archrival and literary executor, Rufus Griswold. It became my mission to correct this image in Mrs. Poe. The real Poe of 1845 was handsome, gentlemanly, and sought after by the ladies."
