The Lippitt House Museum hosts a week of events around “The Women Who Loved Poe” — a film installation by Sandra Luzzi Sneesby — revealing the interior life of writer Edgar Allan Poe, as told by the women who loved him. As is the case with most people, Edgar Allan Poe’s talent and temperament, vocation and career path, successes and failures, are all embedded in his relationships.
Edgar Allan Poe’s genius and the tragic course of his life cannot be fully appreciated without the testimony of these five central figures. Through their discourse, visitors to this installation will gain special insight, not only into Poe’s work, but into his humanity and his heart.
