In January 1845, his most famous poem, 舠The Raven,舡 appeared in the Mirror, propelling him into the circles of New York舗s literati. But none of his successes brought him financial security or lasting happiness. In February 1845, he became editor of the new Broadway Journal; but the journal folded in 1846, and Poe舗s young wife succumbed to tuberculosis in 1847. The next year Poe seemed to rally, giving lectures and courting the poet Sarah Helen Whitman, though she later broke off their engagement.
