The Raven Scam

Published

on

In 1845, by the time Edgar Allan Poe had published “The Raven”, he had already been orphaned or abandoned by his foster parents, and kicked out of West Point.  A notable eccentric, Poe became popular at New York’s literary salons, where Fanny Osgood was a rising star. When during a lecture about the terrible state of American poetry, he called her as a rare exception, he attracted her interest. Their next meetings are said to have set off a flurry of over-sentimental poems, many of which were published under pen names with writers’ identities thinly veiled. This lead to a gossip among the city’s literary ladies that Poe and Osgood were carrying on a semi-­public courtship.

The main problem was that they both were married, Fanny to the ­painter Samuel Osgood, from whom she was estranged, and Poe to his first cousin Virginia. When Virginia heard of the affair through a series of unsigned letters likely from the poet Elizabeth Ellet, who’d been competing for Poe’s attention, she visited Ellet. During the visit, Ellet read a letter from Fanny to Poe which she later claimed was filled with “fearful paragraphs”. Ellet took this information to Fanny, who was already worried about her reputation as she was pregnant. So, she sent two of her friends to retrieve her letters from Poe. While Poe gave over the letters, he also suggested Ellet look to her own compromising letters, which led to a threatened duel with her brother.

Notably affected, Virginia was housebound with tuberculosis by Valentine’s Day, 1986, when she wrote Poe her only known poem, expressing her desire to escape the “tattling of many tongues.” Awkwardly, Poe had also written a poem, “A Valentine,” but it was meant for Fanny.

Virginia died in 1847, fingering Ellet as her murderer on her deathbed. Shortly before dying in 1849, Poe still scarred enough, described literary women as “a heartless, unnatural, venomous, dishonorable set, with no guiding principle but inordinate self-­esteem.” He added an exception, though. And that was Mrs. Osgood.
