Poe Museum In Va. Seeks To Preserve Illustrations
Williamson said his mother brought him to the museum years ago, and the trip later inspired the TV show.
"And the walls were red and looked like blood, and they had 'The Raven' written on the wall, and you had to follow around to read it. I remember it being most magical day," Williamson said in January at the Television Critics Association tour in California.
"The Raven," first published in the New York Evening Mirror, tells the story of a grieving man who gets a midnight visit from a strange bird that repeatedly speaks the word "Nevermore."
Poe, who was born in Boston on Jan. 19, 1809, lived in Baltimore, London, New York, Philadelphia and Richmond. He died under mysterious circumstances at the age of 40 during a visit to Baltimore on Oct. 7, 1849. The cause of his death has been the subject of much speculation over the years, with theories ranging from murder to rabies.___ Michael Felberbaum can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/MLFelberbaum .
