    He called his wife 'Guggum.'
    Years after his wife died, he had her coffin dug up so he could get some poems, buried with her, out of it.
    He had an affair with a close friend's wife.
    He was a junkie, with ether being his drug of choice.
    He was often seen drunk or stoned in public.
    He became obsessed with the supernatural, and would try to contact his wife through seances.
    He kept woodchucks as house pets.
    He was an insomniac.
    His only child was stillborn, due to his wife's laudanum addiction.
