Biography

The Bad Beginning

The Baudelaires stay with her and Mr. Poe at their house prior to living with Count Olaf. She buys a lot of itchy and ugly clothing for them.[1]

Later Books

Mr. Poe adds "Call my wife!" to the list of random cries for help he utters in The Reptile Room when he thought that Sunny Baudelaire had been poisoned by the Incredibly Deadly Viper.[2]

At one point Mr. Poe says that he will tell his wife that dark is in, indicating that she is quite a fashionable woman, or at least tries to be. Mr. Poe is even willing to pay $409 for an ocean decoration of a red herring, likely for her.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • In the 2003 Multi-Voice Recording of The Bad Beginning, she is voiced by Maggie Albright.[4] 
  • In the film she is portrayed by Deborah Theaker.
  • In the TV series, Polly Poe's role as Mr. Poe's wife has been removed, with Eleanora Poe (portrayed by Cleo King) now being his wife instead of his sister.
