Sarah Anna Lewis was a mid-nineteenth-century American poet who is today better known for her association with Edgar Allan Poe than for her writings. She began her career with frequent periodical publications, then published four volumes of poetry, and later two plays and a novel. She depicted the ancient poet Sappho in both a poem and a play. She was an indefatigable self-booster, at one stage with Poe's help. Despite his adulatory words of praise, for which she or her husband recompensed him with cash, SL was never quite as successful as she hoped and imagined herself to be.
